Danville

Danville, which was given Cœur villageois designation, and whose growth was due to the arrival of the railroad in the 19th century, is reminiscent of a small New England town. Magnificent Victorian homes and an American-style town square in the heart of town reflect the arrival of Loyalists from New England and make this a recommended stop on the Townships Trail. In this Village-Relais, the perfect destination for cultural, heritage, gourmet, and outdoor enthusiasts, time seems to stand still. Its various heritage trails, indicated on the town’s sidewalks, lead visitors on a discovery of Danville’s neighbourhoods. Enjoy the charm of the inns and B&Bs here, such as Auberge Jeffery, Maison McCraken, and Gîte McCallum. Its gourmet stops, such as Mante du Carré public market, located in a former general store, and the restaurant Le Temps des Cerises, located in a former Presbyterian church, are worth the trip.

The Route Verte bike trail stops at the Centre Cycliste Régional, a hub of bike services, while birdwatching enthusiasts will delight in exploring the trails at the Centre d’Interprétation de la Nature de l’Étang Burbank, which is on the fall migratory path for thousands of snow and Canada geese. Art lovers will enjoy the Symposium des Arts de Danville art festival.
