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 boat, fish, sail, camp, golf (at five local courses and another 35 within one hours drive!), scuba dive (best fresh water diving in the world), cycle and 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 (downhill within a 2 hour drive), snowmobiling, hiking, ice fishing, ice boating, hockey or just skating on the river.
Brockville is host to countless festivals, events and fun activities. Celtic Festival, Buskers, Riverfest, Ribfest, Automotion, and 1000 Islands Poker Run 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!"
