Day 1 – Arrival in Rockport

Today you’ll arrive in the Thousand Islands region, on the banks of Lake Ontario. Along the coast, you’ll pass several beautiful stops, one of them being Kingston. Kingston was modern-day Canada’s first capital and has the countrys oldest farmer markets. From here, you will continue on to Rockport, where you’ll be spending the next 2 nights in a 200-year-old country inn. Rockport is a very small town, but it has a lovely marina and plenty of choice of restaurants and a cosy pub.
