This was the best wine tasting experience we can remember anywhere in the world. We had amazing hosts, fabulous welcoming hospitality, and generous samples of a lovely and extensive range of wines, including red and white ice wines. A fabulous time tasting cold weather wines which were all very reasonably priced. We bought wines for our dinner in North Hatley and enough to fill the airline luggage allowance for our flight back to Australia.

Wonderful place to spend a few hours on a nice day! Walking, cycling, skating: you can do it all, and enjoy excellent food as well! Close to the famous Sherbrooke murals and Gorge walk. Perfect place to take visitors or your kids. And don't forget the homemade gelato at Savoroso!

Sanctuaire De Beauvoir

Reviewed By swedrobert - Sherbrooke, Canada

I would highly recommend Beauvoir for people who are interested in relaxing and feeling the spiritual atmosphere that is there. There are paths for walking and pauses for spiritual understanding. There is an old church that is interesting to visit as well as a newer one where services are held. In the summer time, there is an outdoor area with seats and a holy place for the clergy to hold services.
This is a wonderful place for people who want to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. A break well taken and a very spiritual place to re energize.

Promenade de la Gorge de la Riviere Magog

Reviewed By Michelle S - Sherbrooke, Canada

My children go to school right beside this gorge and I've driven on the closest roads on all sides of the gorge and yet I didn't know it existed. An easy and short walk along the Magog river takes you to a bridge/hydroelectric dam where you have a great view of the impressive gorge.

If you're visiting the area, be sure to build in the mural tour in downtown Sherbrooke. The artists of MURIR are second to none in their creativity, whimsy, and startling "trompe l'oeil" techniques.

Musee De La Nature Et Des Sciences

A new multimedia/multisensory adventure awaits, a mere stone's throw from the Orford Express and Omaterra. Witness the birth of the Appalachian Mountains and cross the lava fields. Feel the continents shift and the glaciers retreat as the earth trembles and the temperature soars, then plunges... You'll never see the Eastern Townships quite the same way again! Be sure to stop by the permanent exhibition "The Cycle of the Seasons," which showcases the finest plant and animal specimens in southern Québec! Consult the program for temporary Exhibitions and events.

Reviewed By Boutip - Gatineau, QC

This museum isn't that big but the exhibits were really good. The exhibits around ''La petite vie'' was really good and was enjoyed by everybody in the family. I would recommend stopping by if you are in town.

Parc du Mont-Bellevue

Reviewed By viatgesrjr - Mayaguez

Great relaxing walk in this forest right next to Sherbrooke University. Easy to access. There is some slope to overcome and some challenge, good cardiac activity. However, at least the trails that we walked were not too challenging. We went in the summer months. Others were jogging or walking their dogs. Beautiful.

They have dedicated parking. Many movies are presented as they have many screens. They launched an international movie festival last fall. I saw three movies and was very impressed! This is the only place I go to to watch a movie in Sherbrooke.
