Already well known for its long shoreline, ideal sailing conditions and beautiful sandy beaches—including those at picturesque Sandbanks Provincial Park—this stretch of vibrant historic communities along Lake Ontario northeast of Toronto has transformed itself into a must-visit destination.
Increasingly, it’s a major draw for wine lovers and organic farming enthusiasts. The county now boasts more than 30 wineries, while its prominent place in the “slow food” movement (top Toronto chef Jamie Kennedy is a noted Prince Edward County booster) has inspired culinary tours that showcase its agricultural bounty. If food isn’t your thing, towns such as Picton and Milford offer artist studios, lovely inns, antique shops and more.
