On the way back to downtown Shawi, passing through the city instead of the highway, go through the hill of rue Champlain, a huge mural painting on a two wall sections is worth the detour. A stop at the Marché public de Shawinigan for lunch is a very good idea. You can then cross over the street to the Étoile Polaire (ice cream parlor) for a frozen yogurt!
In the afternoon, you must stop by the Ruelle Interzone (between 4th and 5th rue de la Pointe) where more than thirty art works can be seen. It’s literally an open-air museum, accessible by the 5th rue de la Pointe on the left of the Globe Steakhouse. Passing there, you’re assured not to miss anything. But keep an eye out, there’s plenty to see everywhere (even on 5th)!
You can then have dinner at Taj Mahal, which is a bring your own wine restaurant. The perfect plan is to get yourself some take out beer at the Trou du Diable Broue-pub & restaurant next door! At the end of the alley, behind the Pub, you can also see the most beautiful and colorful steps in the whole city!
On Sunday morning, you can have a croissant, fruit salad and coffee at the artisan bakery Tous les jours dimanche. We take the opportunity to pick up what it takes to have a picnic. A lemonade, a cookie and a sandwich should be just fine.
To end this journey on a good note, I invite you to spend part of the afternoon at Léo-Ayotte, an exhibition center where you can see visual arts exhibitions on two floors for free! Enjoy your visit!
