Continue your exploration of city center by walking along Rue Racine. There is a terrific tourist information office at 295 Rue Racine East. The friendly staff can provide maps, answer questions and explain the three heritage circuits in downtown. Then, turn right at Rue la Fontaine and head toward the water’s edge of the Saguenay River. From 1873 until 1985, this area was the old port of Chicoutimi. In the early 1990s, the city transformed Vieux Port into a recreational park named The Port Zone (Zone Portuaire de Chicoutimi).
