Features
Free, Popular with locals, Family-friendly

Ile d'Orleans lies in the middle of the St. Lawrence River and is just a 15-minute drive from downtown Quebec City. The entire island is a designated historical area, and has a traditional French countryside feel. Food and produce is a huge area of pride (and income) here—the streets are full of market stalls and farm-fresh goods to sample and purchase. There are plenty of restaurants—try the lobster poutine at l'O2 L'Ile, a relaxed bistro—and picturesque paths, shops, and art galleries. Galleries to visit include La Maree Montante (with work predominately from Quebec artists) and Centre d'Art Saint-Laurent (located in a converted barn). There are also a handful of vineyards on the island worthy of a visit.
