Microbrasserie Siboire

Visiting Siboire is always a good time. You will feel right at home as you sample their beers and indulge in their delicious food. It’s also really close to Lac des Nation, so I recommend taking a walk around the lake to help fend off indigestion.

Marais Réal-D.-Carbonneau

This marsh is never crowded. I think it’s because people just don’t know about it. It’s the perfect getaway when you’re craving a dose of nature but don’t have the time to go on a full-blown road trip. The boardwalk is perfect for spying out all sorts of little critters. The trail is admittedly quite short, but why not do a few loops or stay awhile and enjoy some bird watching?

Louis Luncheonette

Want to try the best poutine in the world? Louis Luncheonette has you covered. This restaurant is a Sherbrooke institution and has three unique locations. The menu not only rivals some of the best canteens in the world but incorporates all sorts of local products. You can’t miss it when you visit Sherbrooke!

Théâtre Granada

This venue is spectacular—every seat in the house has a great view of the stage and the shows are always exceptional. A must-see in Sherbrooke!
