Levis Tips (6)

The best ice-cream I've ever had

Just opposite Québec City lies the small town if Lévis (pronounced Leevee). Many tourists take the ferry to there just to get a good view of QC and Château Fontenac, but only a few ever leave the ferry terminal to discover Lévis. If you want to be one of those few and enjoy the world's best chocolate-covered ice-cream, turn right after leaving the terminal, climb the steep stairs to your left and turn left into the second or third street you pass. There you'll see a rather unimposing building with a sign reading "Le chocolat favoris". That's where you get the world's best chocolate-covered ice-cream (and many other delicacies)!
You can choose between 5 sizes of ice-cream, but be warned: already the baby size is as big as a normal ice-cream. Your ice will be covered with chocolate which is so thick and crusty you actually have a hard time reaching the ice. But -oh!- it's soooooo yummy!

Parc de la Paix (Peace Park) - Levis

This park is located just before you head up the road to Fort #1 in Levis. The site is that of an old Canadian Airforce base and was dedicated to the advancement of peacewith the aid of UNESCO . The tower is still there as is a mounted CF-101 Voodoo interceptor aircraft from the cold war. Other portions of the park represent the other two services.

First Shipyard in North America

The Davie shipyard, founded by the Davie family in 1829, was the first naval shipyard in North America. Although, there is not much there you can sit at the nearby park and watch ships pass through the St. Lawrence River. Throughout the years, this shipyard saw several wooden boats built, including a large part of the schooner fishing fleet known as the Gaspesiennes and a replica of the Grande Hermine. It is located a few steps from the ferry in Levis, facing Quebec City. The address is 6220 rue Saint-Laurent.

Levis Fort #1

1865 marked the beginning of the building of a series of three forts in Levis to protect Quebec City from an American attack. Today, Fort No. 1 is the last British witness of this line of defence. The site is well preserved with underground caponiers, mysterious tunnels, the ditch surrounding the fortress and the casemates housing an exhibit relating the history behind Fort No. 1 and its construction. The top of the ramparts, a promontory offers a great view of the St. Lawrence River. Admission is $4 Cdn (2005).

To get to the fort take the ferry from Quebec City, head east down Saint-Joseph Street, turn right on Mgr Ignace-Bourget Street, right again on Champagnat Street, and then head up Chemin du Gouvernement. The actual address is 41 Chemin du Gouvernement.

Take the ferry from Quebec...

Take the ferry from Quebec City to Levis accross the Saint Lawrence River. My same-day return trip ticket included a free hop-on hop-off shuttle fan all day in Levis. The view of Quebec City is fantstic.
