Everything a big city has to offer
Thanks to its exceptional location, Magog has always been a place of lively activities and culture. This prime tourist destination is also home to 30,000 lucky people. As a result, you’ll find all the services of a big city: a busy downtown area with terraces, restaurants, theater, supermarkets, pharmacies, a hospital and clinics, a large library, a sports center with two pools and much more.
Outdoor activities for everyone
In addition to its multiple beaches, Magog also has many bike paths, including the popular Montagnard, a stretch of the Route Verte, along the Magog River and the tip of Lake Memphrémagog that leads straight to the Mont-Orford National Park. During the winter, a portion of this trail turns into an ice trail, which allows you to skate along the shores of the lake on a well-lit 2.5 km (1.5 mi.) trail. During the summer and winter, there is a walking path alongside the lake for 5.5 km (3.4 mi.). This path also leads to the Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises trails (long bridge on stilts).
Arts and culture
Stroll through the streets of Magog and discover all kinds of art shops on the way to Maison Merry, where antique furniture and indigenous artifacts are enhanced by the modern technologies of the exhibition. The museum also serves as a meeting point for the Memphrémagog Arts Circuit, which showcases the region’s best artists and artisans. Nature and the beauty of the landscapes serve as an inspiring environment for everyone.
