AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Just a few kilometers down the river is Île d'Orléans, a quaint island of 7,000 locals and six mini villages (accessible by boat or bridge) that’s become an agro-tourism destination. Renowned for its fish, apples, wines, chocolates, strawberries, ciders and cheeses, Île d'Orléans' main industry is agriculture, and much of its farming holds true to the old-fashioned way of life of Québec's ancestors. The island was settled by the French in the 17th century. The best times to visit are between July and October for fresh produce, some of which you can even pick yourself. Island tours are available through the tourism bureau, which is the best place to check out first upon arrival.
