Travel Guide: Ile D'Orleans, Quebec City
Inhabited by roughly 7000 people, L’Ile d’Orleans – or Orleans Island – is an island just outside of Quebec City, Canada. L’Ile d’Orleans has been considered part of the National Historic District since 1970. The area has a long-seeded agricultural tradition, and boasts farms, fresh produce and ample amounts of wine-producing grapes. The island is accessible via the Ile d’Orleans bridge. This suspension bridge crosses over the Saint Lawrence River from the Montmorency Falls to L’Ile d’Orleans. Before the bridge’s construction in 1934, the island was only reachable by ferry.
