Spring Fling



Description:

Perfect for travelers who want to discover Quebec's lesser-known season, spring. While, the skiing season is winding down, and summer is still a good two months away, what is a tourist to do? Well, do what all the other Quebekers do! Get thee to a sugar shack! Watch how maple syrup is made, eat a traditional Quebec meal, and gorge on maple syrup in all its permutations: maple sugar, maple butter, maple taffy, maple candy, maple... well you get the idea.
