Visiting Prince Edward County and Picton, Ontario

Picton is located in Prince Edward County, which is a beautiful tourist area and is rapidly developing a significant wine making industry due to its unique ecology. If you are entering both events and consequently staying over the weekend, many hotels/motels are available in the area. Information on the Picton area can be found at http://www.pec.on.ca/picton.

The airfield has been used for scenes in many Movie and TV shows with The Discovery Channel TV series “Canada’s Worst Driver” being one of the most recent. Incidentally, the OPP and RCMP conduct some of their high-speed car training on the same airfield sections that we will be using. As the airport was designed for the heavier demands of bomber training during WWII, the foundation and surface have survived quite well. Moreover, there is a certain “ambiance” about the place with all the old hangers and military camp buildings. It’s believed that the airfield’s unofficial on-site dump is the home to a V2 rocket smuggled home from the war by none other than Farley Mowat. A simple online search can point you in the right direction.

Where to Say: There are few places in North America as beautiful as Sandbanks Provincial Park. You can find out more at https://www.ontarioparks.com/park/sandbanks Those of you who would describe themselves as indoorsy, can find information for this option at http://prince-edward-county.com/item/town-of-picton/

What to Do: Whether its camping for the kids, visiting the Lake on the Mountain, seeing the Bay of Quinte from above no visit is complete without some antique shopping (downtown) or dropping by one of the many area wineries.

 

Hope to see you there!
