Welcome to Prince Edward County
Small but active Picton is the unofficial capital of the affluent isthmus, a favorite getaway for Torontonians. Along the shores of Lake Ontario, Sandbanks Provincial Park's sandy beaches summon old-school holidaymakers to revel in the long hot days, summer storms and balmy nights around the campfire. In winter, it's a different story entirely.
The Loyalist Parkway (Hwy 33) unfurls 100km from Trenton, along Lake Ontario, to Kingston, retracing the steps of the British Loyalists who settled here after fleeing the American Revolution. There's a brief interruption to the road at Glenora, beneath the mystical Lake on the Mountain, where a car ferry whisks you across to Adolphustown.
