Brockville in the tourism region: South Eastern Ontario

We are not getting tired of recommending any visitor traveling from Ontario to Quebec or back to follow the St. Lawrence River.
If you do that, you will also come to Brockville, a beautiful small town of about 22,000 inhabitants.
We stopped there at the main thoroughfare always at the same restaurant. We could sit outside and the food was delicious and not too expensive.
From there we had a good view of the city and the little traffic.
Brockville got its name in memory of a hero in the 1812 war, General Sir Isaac Brock.
Previously the place was called Buell's Bay. By Canadian standards, the city is very old - it was founded in 1765.
Luckily many historic buildings have been preserved.

The view from the restaurant

We did not have to pay for parking and the city looked pretty clean. Welland should learn something from it and finally force the citizens to throw the rubbish in the waste baskets intended for that purpose. Brockville has obviously done that.

So take a closer look at the city, get some information. Visit the "Riverfest" if you are here in June. We were told that it last for several days and offers something for everybody..
But even without the festival, the "St. Lawrence River" is always an attraction.
Especially scuba divers can visit old sunken ships here.
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
If you love diving. There are some ship wrecks on the bottom of the "St. Lawrence River". Special tours are offered.

So far we have not visited any of the museums or historical places, as we were always just passing through.

From mid-June to mid-September, the "Brockville Arts Center & Summer Theater" offers a lot. Find out about the actual t program. Have a nice evening there.
Use the built-in links to videos that give you a glimpse of what's on offer.
Of course, cruises on the "St. Lawrence River" are also offered. If you also want to visit the eastern part of the "1000 Islands", you can only do it from here - unless you have your own boat.
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!
If you are interested in murals, you should go to nearby Athens. We also have some in Welland and most of them are quite impressive.
