Brockville is one of the best-kept secrets of South Eastern Ontario. This charming city on the banks of the St. Lawrence River delivers with a renowned performing arts centre, plenty of historic architecture and a good mix of dining and shopping options.
Your resort retreat begins when you arrive at the Tall Ships Landing Resort, which features beautiful views of the Thousand Islands archipelago. Check into your suite and then head out to explore the shops and restaurants of downtown Brockville — all within walking distance of your hotel.
The city offers plenty to do, both indoors and out. Nature enthusiasts will love walking the Brock Trail that winds through parks and along the riverfront in downtown Brockville. The nearby Mac Johnson Wildlife Area offers even more nature trails through wetlands, fields and serene forests. When conditions allow, skating is available at a rink pond in the wildlife area, as well as at the Rotary Park rink in town.
When it’s time to take a break from the outdoors, visit one of the local shops or restaurants. For great coffee (and breakfast for that matter), try Richard’s Coffeehouse located on King Street in the heart of Brockville’s downtown core. If you are craving something a little stronger, the 1000 Islands Brewing Co is just short walk away. Brockville’s famous Aquatarium (a huge aquarium and discovery centre) is located right beside your hotel and is well worth a visit. You can also catch a performance at the Brockville Arts Centre, which offers a variety of quality shows year round.
The highlight of your Brockville visit will be a day of pampering at the luxurious Heavenly Touch Spa. Couples will experience peace and tranquility through a specially designed romance retreat package. You’ll each start with an aromatherapy relaxing full body massage and afterwards, you’ll meet up in a romantic, candle-lit private pedicure room to enjoy milk & honey pedicures with an oxygen bar session. Complimentary wine and chocolates complete the relaxing experience.
After a dinner at one of the great local restaurants, continue your day of relaxation at the Tall Ships Landing Resort facilities which include an indoor salt-water pool, hot tub and a dry sauna.
Take a walk along the Brock Trail or spend some time enjoying the downtown core before heading home.
