Take A Drive: County Road 64

Ready to take a drive? We’ve come up with a few ideas to help you enjoy the wide-open spaces our region is known for. Hop in your car and and enjoy the slow, winding roads of the country, experience our natural attractions, meet local business owners and enjoy some great bites along the way!

 

 

County Road 64 (or Canal Road, can you drive down this?)

This rural route passes through the southern edge of Quinte West, along the northern border of Prince Edward County and into Brighton. Our favourite part? The swing bridge that crosses the Murray Canal, which is a favourite among locals for stand-up paddling!

 

 

Presqu’ile Park Place

Speaking of paddle boards, you can rent one here on your way into the park. You can also pick up worms for a day of fishing, seasoned firewood and a big scoop of Kawartha Dairy ice cream (we recommend enjoying each of them separately).

250 Presqu’ile Parkway, Brighton

 

 

Presqu’ile Provincial Park

White sandy beaches? Check. Plenty of scenic picnic areas? Check. Trails for walking, rolling, hiking or biking? Check x 4! There’s plenty of nature-based fun here for the whole fam, and birders will especially love this migration hot spot.

The Whistling Duck

A spacious patio + Presqu’ile Bay = unreal (socially distant) waterfront views. Add in a local, grass-fed beef burger and a bottle of Empire Cider for some very delicious math — we mean, lunch!

75 Harbour Street, Brighton
