I need some help deciding where to stay in the Eastern Townships. We are driving from Montreal to Quebec City via the E.Ts. It will be Oct 8th (Thanksgiving) and 9th, and it'll be me with my wife and two young kids (6 and 8).
We wanted to do it mainly to see the fall foilage,but that's not really helping us to decide where to stay for two nights. We are keen on taking the kids to the Mount Megantic Observatory, which - if done at nighttime - might mean we choose to stay somewhere local to that, but that's really all we can think of doing at this stage. Otherwise I would just be considering somewhere like Granby, Magog or Sherbrooke... but I don't know.
Given that it will be Thanksgiving the first night, is there likely to be any festivals or other family-friendly events that might lead us to stay somewhere in particular? Or maybe there's just a stand-out town within the cantons?
Thanks, any ideas would be great.
