This Cute Little Quebec Town Was Voted One Of 'The 12 Best Small Towns In Canada'

When we think of towns to visit in la belle province, spots like Quebec City or Mont Tremblant typically come to mind first. But, thanks to one Quebec town making Travel + Leisure's "The 12 Best Small Towns in Canada" list, we can add a new spot to our bucket list.

Baie-Saint-Paul, which is found in the Charlevoix region, was the only Quebec town to make this ranking. This tiny town is known for being filled with artistic talent, from musicians to acrobats and was deemed "the epitome of French Canadian charm" by Travel + Leisure.

If you're curious to go check it out it for yourself, it's less than a four-hour drive from Montreal!

The other 11 towns to make it in this ranking were:

  • Golden, British Columbia
  • Churchill, Manitoba
  • Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia
  • Tofino, British Columbia
  • Elora, Ontario
  • Victoria-by-the-Sea, Prince Edward Island
  • Banff, Alberta
  • Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
  • St. Andrews by-the-Sea, New Brunswick
  • Dawson, Yukon
  • Trinity, Newfoundland
It seems travelling within Canada was a common trend in 2021, so if you're hoping to hop on the bandwagon, consider checking out the cute spots in this list.
