On site, you can also attend many shows, and offer yourselves a quaint dinner in one of many restaurants.
In short, gambling isn’t the only thing that can awaken passions at the Lac-Leamy Casino.
Unwind together at the Dorwin Falls Park in Rawdon
Every year, thousands of tourists riding along the roads of Lanaudière enjoy the magnificent view offered by the Dorwin Falls in Rawdon. At 60 feet in height, the intense noise and the might on display create a fascinating contrast with the calm of the surrounding lush forest. You can admire them from four lookout points accessible via more than 3 km of nature trails.
Although the incredible landscape alone will satisfy couples, a Native American legend with a history that unfolds in the area adds to the location’s romanticism. According to this story, the triumph a young Amerindian’s love, Hiawhitha, is the origin of the creation of Dorwin Falls.
You can access this site along Route 337.
Visit the Le Trou du Diable microbrewery to share a romantic moment
The roads along the Saint-Maurice River are ideal for a long motorcycle ride. Near Shawinigan, in Mauricie, however, is a must-visit spot: the Le Trou du Diable microbrewery, boutique and lounge.
On site, in addition to being able to share a craft beer for two, you can see artists perform on a stage that welcomes musicians from across Quebec and even internationally. You can also take a guided tour of the brewery to quench your thirst for beer knowledge.
However, just as love can make your head spin, so too can beer! Don’t take any chances, and instead of getting back on the road after a few beer discoveries, take a ride to the Comfort Inn & Suites in Shawinigan. You can spend a peaceful night there before continuing your journey on the Route des Rivières.
