Default Question for Quebec members.....

Is there any boating attractions near Bromont? Bromont is north of Montreal. Wife has a horse show there the last week on July. She wants me to come, but I can't hang around the show grounds doing nothing for three or four days.

So I thought, I'd bring the boat up and maybe run some lakes or rivers near by.

Anything worth towing the boat up for?

They are into the Horse thing in Bromont. Went to a dog show there awhile back, sure there is boating, but was not paying attention.

Stayed here think they had a big enough lake nearby: http://www.chateaubromont.com/eng/attraction.html

Bromont is actually east of Montreal.

Head south for an hour from Bromont and you can dip in Lake Champlain then you'll wish that horse show lasted weeks.

Crossing on the water is a pain in the arse... better put in in the US nicer ramps not much to see boating on the Canadian part of the Lake anyway and you'll save gas.
