What to Do in the Eastern Townships with your Family


The Eastern Townships is called the cottage country of Montreal. It is a string of towns and villages along the U. S. borders popular for its foodie culture and outdoor activities. If you are going to Bromont avec la famille, you can spend a day at the beautiful Ski Bromont water park. Also, this is where you can take in some significant history at the chocolate museum. But you do so much more and explore other places in the region. Read on to know some options:

Visit Zoo de Granby

If you are with kids, do not miss a visit to the Zoo de Granby. Although it is the biggest in Quebec, it lets you see the whole thing in one day, even if a preschooler is tagging along on their little legs. The zoo offers plenty of shades, and cheery, clean grounds are dotted with colourful animals and vehicle sculptures that children can pose with or climb on. As your children get tired, they can catch the sights on the elevated choo-choo train, go to the mini amusement park for a ride on the Ferries wheel, or take a dip in the healing waters of the Amazoo, the water park of the zoo.

The Eastern Townships is surrounded by a lot of mild bars that offer old-fashioned sundae. Plus, there is a gift shop at Zoo de Granby to take home a stuffed red panda doll.

Have a Family Ski Day

If you love skiing and your kids are excited about taking to the slopes, Bromont is the place to be. You can find many family packages in Bromont and your children can also have fun in the igloos, bouncy castles, and water parks.

Fly Down the Hillside

In the Eastern Townships, you and your pack can jump on the sled and fly down the hillside. This free and simple activity is fun for the entire family. Just pick your favourite spot between the hill and make sure to bring your sleds as there are usually no sled rentals.

Enjoy Hot Chocolate

Nothing can be better than having a cup of steaming hot chocolate after an outdoor activity. A lot of shops in the region sell the tasty beverage; however, the Chocolate Museum is highly recommended where you can both satisfy your sweet tooth and visit the Museum for free.

Try Bouldering

The rain should not stop you from having fun. Kids ages 5-6 and older can try bouldering at Backbone. This is place offers a safe and relaxed environment for kids to climb.
