"Here are some towns we've..." Quebec Off The Beaten Path Tip by noahsdad

Quebec Off The Beaten Path: 112 reviews and 155 photos

Here are some towns we've enjoyed visiting:

St. Jean Port Joli--we went there just because we heard a song written about it. It's a quaint country town on the St. Lawrence with a charming little church.

Cap des Rosiers--Here, at the tip of the Gaspe peninsula, the Appalachians end. We went whale-watching (awesome!) and seal-watching. The seals (do NOT snicker at their French name!) seemed just as interested in watching us.

Gaspe--we'll go back someday!

Perce--there's a 2-million ton rock out in the Baie des Chaleurs that's quite striking in the sunset--or any time of day.

Bonaventure--the southern side of Gaspesie is less charming, but the people are friendly. Also, in Bonaventure, there's a museum of Acadien history. Very moving.

Magog--not in Gaspesie, but in the Eastern Townships, at the end of Lake Memphremagog. The downtown was decorated with signs wishing 'Joyeuse Halloween' when we were there. We ate well at a little cafe.
