Gananoque, the Canadian Gateway to the 1000 Islands, is a must for anyone visiting eastern Ontario. Centrally located on the St. Lawrence River, the town is midway between Toronto and Montreal and minutes from Kingston, Brockville, and northern New York.
Gananoque is also a convenient base for visits to Ottawa, Smiths Falls, Athens, the Rideau Canal, and other easter Ontario attractions. Our picturesque town is small in size, but world famous for its scenic boat tours, historic buildings, museums, parks, acclaimed theatre company, dining, shopping, accomodations, hospitality, and location.
During the summer season live performances are featured at the Thousand Islands Playhouse. Boaters can park right at the Playhouse's dock. Every August, Gananoque hosts The Festival of the Islands. This 10 day festival includes waterfront concerts, historical reenactments, a large craft fair and fireworks display.
