If St-Sauveur is too busy and overdeveloped for your liking, Morin Heights is a great alternative, with plenty of restaurants, bookstores, boutiques, and craft shops to explore free from the crowds. The town's British architecture and population reflect its settlers' heritage; most residents here speak English.
In summer, windsurfing, swimming, and canoeing on the area's two lakes—Claude and Lafontaine—are popular. In
fall and winter, come for the foliage and the alpine and Nordic skiing.
