Passionate about landscapes as much as about the rich history of Shawi and being a photography lover, I share my pride in being a Shawiniganais through my Facebook page Shawinigan centre-ville.
Bucolique - Martin

Café Bucolique

There is nothing like this coffee shop to savour a good coffee or a delicious fruits pancake whilst going back in time in an antic decor in a welcoming atmosphere. It’s one of Shawi’s less and less well-kept secrets!

The unique diversity of its animated activities and passionate guides will ensure that your day is well filled with an observation tower, an interactive exposition, a multisensorial show, the Jean-Chrétien’s Museum, a power plant and a power house visits, a city tour and a cruise.

Parc de l’Île Melville

What town can brag about having a campground, a marina, an adventure course in the trees, and, above all, kilometers of wooded trails with free access 5 minutes from downtown? Shawinigan! Summer or winter, come and get lost in the woods in the middle of town!

Ranch Dupont - Martin

Ranch Dupont

Somewhere in the Shawinigan-Sud area is hidden the Ranch Dupont’s astonishing menagerie of animals: there is about thirty animal species from 5 continents including bisons, mouflons, emus, lemurs and even camels that will enjoy slipping into your selfies… even in winter! Don’t forget your camera!

Cadeaux chez Guy

Much more that just a store, Cadeaux Chez Guy, in downtown Shawinigan, is a tourist attraction in itself: you come in in the gift section where you can buy for you or your loved ones before discovering a huge section for children with educational toys and board games. Before leaving, don’t forget to go up to the second floor: this is where the magic of Christmas is hidden all year long.
