La Petite France
Sometimes the best way to get to know a neighborhood like Petite-France is to simply wander along its streets for a while. Once home to butchers and tanners, this neighborhood was centered on the city’s canals to accommodate those professions’ constant need for water to function. Today, their half-timbered homes situated right on the river still stand, and are a truly beautiful sight to behold. Grab a quick bite to eat at a local café and soak in the historic scenery. When the weather is warm, the neighborhood’s charm is elevated when every house’s window boxes overflow with flowers.
