Prince Edward County
Prince Edward County, Ontario’s newest wine appellation, has been touted as one of Canada’s top tourist destinations. More often than not, its pastoral setting will convince you to toss your map and let the spirit lead, as you meander through the distinctive towns and villages in search of tucked-away treasures: artisanal cheeses, gourmet hot dogs and many wineries, all inspired by a dedication to local ingredients. Home to some of North America’s largest freshwater beaches, “The County” (as locals call it) also boasts sensational vistas of Lake Ontario in every direction—a perfect backdrop for your visit.
Prince Edward County is approximately 2.5 hours by car from Toronto, 3 hours from Ottawa, and 90 minutes from Kingston.
