City on the South shore of Fleuve Saint-Laurent, right in front of Montréal city, founded in 1667 by Jesuites missionnaries.

Starting point of the first railroad in Canada (linking La Prairie to Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, the city now counts 19,483 citizens. For a long time, La Prairie has been a very important city for fur trade, wich explain that you cannot see anymore beavers around today.

Now, La Prairie has become a usual suburban city, and the main attraction in town is Le Pit de Sable or Pit à Langlois wich may or may not be a nudist camp.
