When in Quebec city, do make time for a tour of this island. Many of us have ancestors who came from Europe in the 1600 hundreds. There are so many wineries, breweries and cideries along with Apple orchards, strawberry growers, chocolate makers, bakeries and nougat...More

We stayed on the I'lle d'Orleans for a few days, staying on Chemin Royal. The little villages, the view, and many of the shops, stands, churches, are worth seeing. The food on the island is amazing... so fresh. We were there during a heat wave,...More

I did not understand how a road could be an attraction until we got to Ile D'Orleans. The Chemin Royal circles the entire island and is dotted with little towns, restaurants, wineries, sugar shacks, etc. Ile d'Orleans is like a trip back in time to...More
