    Made famous because of the great cheese they make, the monks of the St-Benoit-du-lac abbey will welcome you either for a religious pilgrimage, if you seek a place to rest or just to enjoy hearing them sing and taster their famous cheese, apples and all other products they make. You can also have lunch with them. But they usually don't talk..even...

  • Skiing!!

    This is the region where you'll find the best skiing in Quebec (I find).Even thought some of the hills are not open at night, the reason why I like this area is because of all the amount of NATURAL snow. BIG POWDER (well..for eastern standards anyways..)Much less crowded than Tremblant and the rest of the laurentians, these hills are treasures for...

    The place as a very nice atmosphere and feel no matter the time. Also they offer very good specials depending on the day you come. They serve good sandwiches, american style food (with a bit more finish) and a few delicacies.I ordered an american burger..but got a swiss instead. But it was still good.:)

    Cultural Tips: Signs here are usually in French: Pont = Bridge, Rue = street,Arret = stop, etc. Speed limits are in KM/h, NOT MILES! Cops exept in school zones, usually won't stop you unless you ride 20km/h over the limit :) Also on most highways, you'll find that cops are pretty absent. In the city, you'll often see parked cars with nobody in it...

Sherbrooke Warnings and Dangers

    by Deus_ultima Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is Hells Angels country. Even thought I've never seen one and they don't really bother people here, showing off 'colors' or anything like that may be unwise here..

    There bunker, if you care to see is on Wellingtong street in Lennoxville.

Sherbrooke What to Pack

    by Deus_ultima Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Bring your skis, fishing rod, hiking boots and all you can think of as this is a great place for 'nature' tourism. The region is also renowned for it's gastronomy.
    :)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Depends.. I like khakis and warm-ups because of all the walking around and sports i do..but bring 'chic' clothes in case you go out..people are a bit..'selective' here..

    Photo Equipment: Don't forget your polarizer and lot's of film!
    :)
    I like the agfa films because of how they render colors (VERY bright and contrasted) gives nice nature shots (to me anyways..)

    This basilica, downtown Sherbrooke is not only very impresive architecturally, but it's also just beside the old seminary and a few historical spots so It's not out of the way and once you park your car here, you can walk around and see a few nice things.
