What to do this weekend – February 14-16

This weekend, not suprisingly, we are focusing on activities to celebrate Saint Valentine’s Day, but we also have a number of suggestions for enjoying some outdoor fun!

Unique ways to celebrate Saint Valentine’s

Are you planning to celebrate this festival of love? Here are some ideas that are a little out of the ordinary…. But perhaps you’d prefer to enjoy a romantic dinner with your significant other? The following are a selection of eight restaurants where you can do just that and as a special treat, pick up the tab!

Hike to the most scenic lookout points in the Townships

There are dozens of mountains in our region and it’s really hard to know which ones to explore. To help you choose, we’ve put together a list of five lookout points that rank among the most scenic in the Eastern Townships. C’mon. Off you go! Strap on your snowshoes or crampons and set off for a winter adventure!

Have a great time at the Fête des neiges de Coaticook!

This weekend, there’s a great line-up of fun activities at Coaticook’s Snowfest – guided fat bike tours, sleigh rides, a gourmet « village » with hot drinks and tastings (showcasing local foods), inflatable games, outdoor cinema, fireworks and live entertainment!

Unwind at a spa

Need to escape the daily grind? Take a romantic break at one of our spas. Each is a little different from the other but they all offer you the opportunity to unwind and relax, even if it’s only for a couple of hours….

Gourmet foods to go!

Our gourmet foods are mouthwateringly good and they make great gifts, either for yourself or your loved one. The following is an overview of a dozen places where you can sample the local produce and stock up on supplies!
