With Lake Memphremagog as a backdrop, a 44.5-km view of mountains extending to the Vermont border, and a lively downtown core, the City of Magog benefits from an exceptional location that early on in its history established its reputation as a popular tourist destination. Founder Ralph Merry arrived in the region around 1797 and left his mark by harnessing hydroelectric power for the textile industries, for which the city was to be long known. His home still stands in the heart of the city, at the corner of Merry and Principale streets. A resort destination since the early 20th century, Magog is a lively place year round, with a multitude of cultural, sporting, and gourmet activities and events. The Parc de la Baie-de-Magog is not to be missed with its paths, beaches, and pier from which to embark on an excursion on the lake in search of the lake’s monster, Memphré, who has been a legendary creature for more than 200 years. In addition to the renowned performance venue the Vieux Clocher, the bustling downtown area features boutiques, art galleries, and numerous restaurants and terraces. In June, keep an eye out for the return of the Orford Express, one of Canada’s most beautiful tourist trains. Those seeking tranquility can explore the unspoilt nature along the trails at the Marais de la Rivière-aux-Cerises marsh. The two nearby vineyards, Cep d’Argent and Vignoble Chemin de la Rivière, located on the Route des Vins de l’Estrie wine route will delight your taste buds. Among the events held here annually are the Fête des Vendanges Magog-Orford grape harvest festival, the Projet ÉCOSPHÈRE environmental and green building festival, and Triathlon Memphremagog, which attract lots of visitors. In winter, the many inns and B&Bs are the perfect base from which to enjoy snow sports at the Parc National du Mont-Orford provincial park, at the Station de Ski Mont-Orford, or on the ice path beside the lake.
