BrockvilleCanada

Discover the fascinating local history that surrounds one of Ontario’s oldest towns and venture out on the St. Lawrence River to explore the 1000 Islands.

On the northern bank of the St. Lawrence River, around an hour by car from Canada’s capital, is Brockville, the “City of the 1000 Islands.” One of the oldest European settlements in Ontario, it is known as the birthplace of the Canadian flag. The area along the Brockville River is an important place for the indigenous Iroquoians who originally inhabited the area.

Today Brockville is a fascinating city filled with historical artifacts and surrounded by natural beauty. The city is the most populous area in the 1000 Islands. Many who pass through the city use it as a launching pad to explore the St. Lawrence River National Park. Boating and diving are major attractions in the area.Embark on a charter cruise of the river or sign up for a tour to visit some of the world’s most prized fresh water wreck diving sites.

Stroll around Brockville’s scenic downtown precinct to discover its historical and cultural attractions. Stop at Fulford Place to see historic architecture and a museum of carefully preserved items from Canada’s early days as a country. The nearby Brockville Museum is a great place to learn about the local past.

While winters in Ontario are notoriously chilly, they are offset by long and warm summers. Enjoy a meal of freshly caught fish from the St. Lawrence River at a restaurant in the heart of downtown before taking a long riverside stroll along one of Brockville’s many walking trails.

Reach Brockville by car or bus from Ontario. Once you arrive you’ll find accommodation ranging from humble motels to luxury waterfront apartments in the downtown area. Some camping is available in the national park. Navigating the city is simple on foot. Buses run on convenient routes throughout the day.

I didn't have time to really go around Brockville there seem to be some nice restaurants. I think it would be a much better place to visit in the summer. It was just a stopover for me.
