Around the world, most people think of the 1000 Islands as a tourist destination. It is, but those that live here know how much more fun it is to be here all year long.
During the hot and lazy days of summer, inhabitants and tourists from around the world come to fish, sail, camp, golf (at five local courses and another 35 within one hours drive!), scuba dive, cycle, hike. Some like to paint and photograph the wild beauty of the river.
In winter, while much quieter, the region is still teaming with activity. Cross country skiing (world class downhill within a three hour drive), hiking, ice fishing, ice boating, hockey or just skating on the river.
Brockville is host to countless festivals, events and fun activities. Riverfest, Automotion, 1000 Islands Poker Run, Brockville Fall Fair, and the Ookpik Winter Festival attract over four hundred thousand people to the region.
"Part of the charm of the area is that you can live in the country but work in the city and be all of twenty minutes apart!"
Discover the spell of the mighty St. Lawrence River.
