    Capitales de Quebec (baseball)

    by Jefie Updated May 22, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Quebec City's municipal stadium was built in 1938, and the first professional baseball game was played in May 1939 in front of 5,000 fans of the Quebec City Athletics of the Can-Am League (short for Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball). Over the followng decades, several clubs and talented players entertained crowds at the ageing stadium, until the last team moved out at the end of the 1977 season. For over 20 years, the stadium was abandoned, but the population did not support the city's decision to tear it down. This led to the creation of a brand new professional baseball team, les Capitales de Quebec, in 1999. Since then, the Capitales have won four Can-Am League championships, playing in front of an average crowd of 3,000 spectators every night. It's a lot of fun for the whole family!

    Tickets can be booked online or are generally available on game days, with prices ranging from $10 to $17.

    Plenty of sports and nature at Duchesnay!

    by Jefie Updated Dec 30, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located only 30 minutes from Quebec City on the banks of the beautiful Lac Saint-Joseph, Duchesnay Station is where nature and sports come together for the pleasure of all visitors! Duchesnay is open year-round: summer activities include canoeing, kayaking, hiking and cycling while winter activities include cross country skiiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, dogsledding, skating and sliding.

    What I like the most about Duchesnay is that although the landscape is perhaps not as majestic as the one in the Jacques-Cartier National Park, it is less crowded and more user friendly. You only need to show up at the front gate, tell the staff what you feel like doing and they'll direct you to the right place, where you can rent good equipment, grab a bite to eat (nothing beats a warm soup after a day of snow shoeing), and get all the info you need on the different trails available.

    There is a shuttle service available all winter long between Quebec City and Duchesnay (418-527-1010), and Duchesnay Station also offers accommodations and dining for the perfect romantic or family weekend getaway!

    Equipment: Bring your own or rent it there. Prices are available on the Web site.

    Go for a swim at the Marina Saint-Roch

    by Jefie Written Oct 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Need to cool off on a hot day but your B&B/hostel doesn't have a swimming pool? Just pack up your bathing suit and go swimming for free at the Marina Saint-Roch! Located in the downtown area, the marina has one big outdoor pool with two diving boards, a kiddie pool, and nice locker rooms. After you've freshed up you can also go for a walk or a bike ride along the path that goes along the Saint-Charles River. It is a really nice place to go if you feel like getting away from the crowds in the old city.

    Equipment: Bathing suit and a lock if you want to leave your valuables in the locker room

    Parc nautique de Cap-Rouge

    by Scotsgal Written Jun 16, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Nautical Park offers you the possibility to discover all the water pleasures of the bay and the river. You have access to sailboats, catamarans, pedalboats, canoes, kayaks and rowboats.

    Equipment: Bring a water suit or some kind of bathing costume because when kayaking you can get soaked...

    Semi-Pro Hockey!

    by Deus_ultima Written Dec 7, 2002

    Le Caron et Guay de Pont-Rouge!
    If semi-prohockey is our thing, Quebec can also give you a good serving with the Caron et Guay.

    Even though less 'rough' a team compared to Verdun or Laval, these guys always deliver a good scoring and very intense game.

    ALSO 9$ canadian is a VERY cheap price for the quality of the game!

    Quebec has a minor league baseball team that plays in a stadium just north of the St Roch area in Parc Victoria. Tickets are inexpensive and always available.
