Settled in the early 19th century at the point where the Magog and Saint-Francois Rivers meet, Sherbrooke has grown to become the only major city in Quebec's Eastern Township region and features a number of enjoyable activities and events for visitors.
Throughout the summer, the city hosts a number of family-friendly festivals, including the Fete du Lac des Nations fireworks festival in July, and August's Traditions of the World Festival, which celebrates different cultures across the globe.
The Museum of Science and Nature will keep visitors busy for hours with its interactive exhibits, while Sherbrooke Historical Interpretation Centre is full of interesting information on the city's history.
Those looking for outdoor activities may enjoy a bike ride along the city's portion of La Route Verte, or can check out the Parc National de Frontenac, offering a host of pursuits for all seasons including hiking, fishing, canoeing, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
The Museum is dedicated to the exploration, conservation, and advancement of fine arts in the Eastern Townships.
