Corner View: Typical Souvenir of Your City

It hasn't been easy to find a typical souvenir of my city. I live in a small town and after many discussions with locals, we couldn't find a typical product made locally. On the other side, when we talked about places, landmarks that represent our town, we agreed on La Porte des Maires.

We also talked about the market place (built in 1876), the uptown arch, the Yamaska river also. The city is redoing the landscaping close to La Porte des Maires, where the nautical center is (we can rent kayaks, pedalos, canoes). In wintertime, when the ice is thick enough, we can also iceskate on the river, the access being right behind La Porte des Maires.


This project made me realize that there are many wonderful places in my town. I'll showcase some more soon...

Carmie is right...it does look like Holland! ;) But my guess is it will be much colder in winter than it will be in Holland!
Looking forward to see more of your beautiful town.
Have a great weekend!
