When you get to Rimouski, the best place to start is the information center along the main boulevard. The friendly staff there will be able to give you information on all of the different attractions within the city. The information center also does free walking tours Thursday through Sunday twice daily, which can give you information about the local history of the place, the fire that destroyed much of the city, and some of the remaining historical buildings. Most of the plaques scattered throughout the city are in French, so if you don't have a good grasp on French language, doing the walking tour is best, as the guide will be able to offer information in English.

Some of the most impressive sights in Rimouski are the galleries and museums, of which there are an abundance. There is also a theatre here with play performances and musical acts occurring regularly.
