Saguenay Celebrates 175 Years

By Linda Tancs

Just 131 miles from Québec City (the only fortified city north of Mexico), Saguenay is celebrating its 175th anniversary in 2013.  The year-long fête features lots of music as well as science and agricultural exhibitions.  Of course, you don’t need a special occasion to visit this region, blessed as it is by a colossal fjord, temperate weather and magnificent whales.  View the fjord from the heights of L’Anse-de-Tabatière, the only viewpoint that’s accessible by car, and let your spirit soar.
