Price Edward County is a place I look forward to visiting every summer. Every turn you make you see a different lake, a different vineyard with wine tasting, and the most friendly people. Over the last 5 years I have seen this place turn into quite the hip place for Toronto-ians and surrounding areas to visit as it is only a 2 1/2 drive from Toronto. Check out why you should plan you visit to Sandbanks Provincial Park.
Top 5 Things To Do While Visiting Sandbanks Provincial Park: 1. Go Camping. Right off the bat you need to camp here. They have some of the most gorgeous campsites right on the lake or river. They sell out quick, so make sure you plan and book ahead. There are full washrooms and showers (always a bonus while camping), places to rent canoes/kayaks/paddle boards, and the most beautiful BEACH. Seriously, I think I would say this beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to in Canada.
2. The County Cider Company. This patio restaurant over looking their apple vineyard AND lake is one of my favorite reasons I love Prince Edward County. They craft the most delicious hard ciders, have a tasting room, and wood fire pizza (yum). It is only a 20 minute drive from Sandbanks Provincial Park and well worth the drive.
3. Sandbanks Wine Tours. Whether you have a designated driver, want to be chauffeured around, or prefer to rent bikes to taste ALL of the wine you can get your hands on, Sandbanks delivers. Some of my favorites include "Waupoos Estates Winery", "Terra Cello", "Sandbanks Estate Winery", and "Del-Gatto Estates Ltd".
4. Prince Edward County Lavender Farm. These rolling hills of beautiful purple lavender flowers are breathtaking. They also have a popular yearly festival, a beautiful B&B to stay at and gift shop. If you are visiting late June or early July this is a must see. Bring your camera because these views can't be missed.
5. Sandbanks Dune Beach. This is truly a hidden gem within the area. This hiking trail is an easy 2.4 km loops with rolling sand dunes, boardwalks, and fantastic lookouts that are beautiful. What is better is at the end of trail you reach a gorgeous beach overlooking Lake Ontario (Tip: if you do not feel like hiking, go to the exist of the trail and enjoy the beach).
We cottage here in the summer and have had the pleasure of watching this area blossom with tourism and new things to do yearly. #Sandbanks #SandbanksProvincialPark #SandbanksBeach #OntarioTravel #ExploreOntario #OntarioCanada #Ontario_Adventures #OntarioTourism #OntarioCraftBeer #OntarioParks #Camping #Camp #CampingTips #CampingHacks #CarCamping #FamilyLife #TorontoBlogger #CanadianBlogger #CanadianMoms #MotherhoodUnplugged #ChildhoodUnplugged #TorontoMoms #FamilyActivities #FamilyTrip #DiscoverOntario #FamilyAdventures #FamilyTravel #Picton #LakeOntario .
