Conveniently located less than 90 minutes from Montreal, Québec City and Sherbrooke, Victoriaville and its region are at the heart of the action. As the saying goes, happiness is just around the corner! (Website available in French only)

A road trip that explores the Prohibition era

Brome-Missisquoi may be the birthplace of viticulture in Quebec, but it is also in that same region where the first temperance movements in the country began. Long before the Wine Route became one of primary tourist attractions in the Eastern Townships, the region’s border roads were a bustling hub for hundreds of thousands of amateurs of beer, whiskey and other moonshine liquor during the different prohibition periods in the 19th and 20th centuries. Follow the 130 km of the Prohibition Heritage Trail and discover, through interpretation panels and audio clips, the characters, stories and various places that marked the era of prohibition and temperance.
