Leeds and Grenville United Counties

Brockville Marina on the St. Lawrence Seaway, Leeds-Grenville, Ontario, Canada.The United Counties of Leeds and Grenville have a wide variety of landscapes, towns, and experiences for travellers.  Of course there are the Thousand Islands, a favourite vacation spot for the last hundred years, with cruise boat tours and scenic shoreline parkways, but that's not all!

This region is a large part of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO world-class designation for rare or important biodiversity and cultural factors.  Through the county runs the Rideau Canal, built in the 1830s to connect Ottawa to Lake Ontario and used exclusively in the modern era by pleasure boats.  The Canal was designated a World Heritage Site in 2007.  Alongside the canal is the Rideau Heritage Route, a travel route designed to display the beautiful landscape of the region along with the art and artisan studios that dot the countryside.

The canal-side town of Merrickville has a tourist-centred economy, with historical buildings, shops, restaurants and artists.  Along the St. Lawrence, many travellers visit the cities of Gananoque and Brockville, lakeshore destinations that offer boat cruises, fishing, scenic parkways, world-renowned freshwater diving, and more!  Nestled in the hills north of the St. Lawrence are small communities like Westport and Athens, whose rural charm and local artisans welcome many tourists each year.
