Things to Do

Brockville is the eastern gateway to the 1000 Islands and is one of the oldest and most charming cities in Ontario. Known as the "City of the 1000 Islands" we attract visitors from around the world who are looking to spend some time exploring our public waterfront on the mighty St. Lawrence River.

Take a stroll or a bike ride along one of the most accessible waterfronts in the 1000 Islands to view North America's great inland shipping route where gigantic cargo vessels weave their way through the Brockville Islands. Enjoy a 1000 Islands Boat Cruise, explore the Brock TrailCanada's First Railway Tunnel, and the Brockville Museum. 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 in beautiful, historic Downtown Brockville
