  • I go here every February for some reason. It's incredibly cold but I still go. But it's the est sugar shack in town. It has the only authentic sugar shack in town. Only 5 days in February though. They are also the best place for drinking fortified wine named after a wannabe moose out of an ice shot glass to boot. Well I'm not sure what else to say about the place. It's pretty gosh darn amazing though. But like I said, only like 5 days in February.
  • My husband come here annually for Festivaledu Voyageur. It's great! They stage a battle every year right in the Fort in full costume, including muskets!
