Brockville is considered the eastern gateway to the 1000 Islands and is one of the oldest and most charming cities in Ontario.  Brockville, known as the "City of the 1000 Islands" attracts visitors from around the world looking to spend some time in the world famous 1000 Islands and on the mighty St. Lawrence River.  The city's roots trace back to just after the American Revolution when displaced Loyalist refugees settled and founded the first incorporated village in Upper Canada.

Take a stroll or a bike ride along one of the most accessible waterfronts int he 1000 Islands to view North America's great inland shipping route where gigantic cargo vessels weave their way throug the Brockville Islands.  Enjoy a Boat Cruise, explore the Brock Trail and Canada's First Railway Tunnel, enjoy afternoon tea on the verandah at Fulford Place Museum or take in a show at the Brockville Arts Centre.  Do some shopping in one or all of our fabulous boutiques, antique shops or art gallerings on King Street. 

Brockville offers several excellent dining options in the community including several choices downtown.
