If you are a tourists and on your way to Quebec please follow our advise and travel at least a part along the shores of the St. Lawrence River.
Quebec is beautiful but so is Ontario. On your way you will pass Brockville a beautiful small town with a population of approximately 24 000.
We always stopped on the main street at the same restaurant to have break and enjoyed a light meal. We always found free parking close by.
We preferred to sit on the patio and enjoyed the sight. Luckily there was no excessive traffic as you can see in our picture below.
Brockville got its name in honor to General Sir Isaac Brock who was a hero in the war of 1812.
Before that happened the town was called was Buell's Bay. It dates back to the year 1765 which very old for Canada.
Luckily many of the historical buildings can still be found and add to the character of Brockville lots of flavor.
We loved the food and the service!
The view we had from the restaurant
Explore the city and collect actual information about events in Brockville and its surroundings. There is so much to see and to do. I was surprised about all the things which Brockville has to offer, such as the "Brockville Arts Centre", galleries and exclusive shopping.
If you have missed to take a boat tour to the "Thousand islands" book such a tour here.
Enjoy also a wonderful meal in a good restaurant.
Find an accommodation and stay here a few days to explore the surroundings. Relax when you have vacations!
Drive to nearby Prescott and visit Fort Wellington. Check out which performances are offered by the riverside amphitheater. It can be fun to see a play!
Visit Athens and take pictures of the murals.
The town hall - many thanks to "Wladyslaw" and Wikipedia
We always missed the "Riverfest" which takes place in June. We were told that it last for several days and offers something for everybody.
If you love diving. There are some ship wrecks on the bottom of the "St. Lawrence River". Special tours are offered.
I think that it is much saver to join a group with an experienced diver instead doing it on your own.
More relaxing is certainly fishing.
The court house - many thanks to "Wladyslaw" and Wikipedia
We love to come back to Brockville for a longer stay. Elizabeth loves window shopping and so far we never had visited one of the museums.
We also could finally keep our promise to participate on a boat tour to the "Thousand Islands".
Also the "Brockville Arts Centre & Summer Theatre" would attract us.
Watch the videos below to see what to expect!
Very important for me is also to take again my own pictures and videos. I lost many of them during a break in when our computer was stolen.
