Summer, like winter, the trails of the Parc des Chutes are exceptional. Only a few minutes walk from downtown, you feel enveloped by the forest and mesmerized by the sound of the Shawinigan falls. During spring season, it’s impressive when the floodgates are open! You can even discover the remains of the industrial past of the town. Open your eyes!
A festival for the whole family, where pros are demonstrating their expertise with impressive prowess and apprentices can try these extreme sports. Right downtown, Shawi vibrates to the beat of vanlifers, music bands and parachute jumps! Basically, everything to impress the whole family.
I love this cozy and friendly bistro. That’s where we drink the best cocktails in town and eat the best cheese fondues… in the world! 😉 Whether it’s for a romantic or family dinner, everybody feels at home there.
This park is ideal for a picnic! A stop at Tous les jours dimanche is necessary before going there. The pool, the splash pads and the playground will satisfy the whole family. When I’m alone, I take the opportunity to treat myself with a short run along the river.
A secret well kept in Shawi-Sud! The docks are installed at the closing of the floodgates and are accessible for motorless boats. So, it’s a paradise for SUP, canoes and kayaks. Personally, I love going there to watch the sunset and to swim between buoys.
For a breakfast on a terrace during summer or near the fireplace in the winter, this coffee shop serves homemade breakfast and coffee done with love. Its decor brings us back in time. It’s even more pleasant to go there with your mother who tells you the stories of the objects decorating the restaurant.
