What nonrev does not love a trip to France?
How about spending a weekend in France but never leave North America?
Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a French archipelago south of the Canadian island of Newfoundland. It is France’s last foothold in North America. Euros are the currency. Brie, baguettes, boulangeries, and bouteilles de vin are staples.
Sparsely populated Miquelon-Langlade island contains the Grand Barachois lagoon, home to seabirds and seals. The busier Saint Pierre island has a distinct French atmosphere, with a cathedral and the Musée Heritage, which celebrates regional history. An island nearby, Île-aux-Marins, features an abandoned fishing village.
Today, 6,000 French citizens live on St. Pierre, with 600 more on the wilder, naturally spectacular Miquelon. Together, the islands are a hidden gem, with colorful rows of houses and its history of fishermen and rum running.
