The Arts Trail is a great way to indulge your love of things hand-crafted and real. It’s an opportunity to explore your own inner artist spirit, to collect art, or just to go wild buying unique gifts. There is something satisfying about buying a creation from the artist who made it – the object and the pleasure of purchase stays with you like a good friend, and provides a life long connection to a special County story. Naturally the galleries and studios you visit will be as diverse as the artists themselves. Multiple-artist galleries are a great way of seeing a range of work, and part of the fun of the Arts Trail is that it takes you around our beautiful countryside to discover workshops, studios and galleries in a range of settings. Expect everything from cozy country to cutting edge – all good for your imagination, your experience of the County and our creative community. Visit artstrail.ca

Much of it is sheltered from Lake Ontario. With three provincial parks and fourteen conservation areas, hikers and campers all have great areas to explore. Canoeing & Kayaking on West Lake This lake is a very enjoyable, pleasant and scenic paddle. The most pleasant is along the dunes.

Carrying Place is a community that serves as the gateway to Prince Edward County. Situated just south of Trenton, it was named for its location on the portage between the Bay of Quinte and Weller’s Bay on Lake Ontario. The Loyalist Parkway passes through the community. Carrying Place is home to the Department of National Defence’s LPH-89 antenna farm attached to CFB Trenton and located along Loyalist Parkway south of Twelve O’clock Point. Of considerable historical importance, Carrying Place or the Portage was thought to have a better future than Toronto when water transport was the principal means of travel. Situated on the narrow neck of land separating the western terminus of the Bay of Quinte from Weller’s Bay on Lake Ontario, it was a thriving community in the 1800′s. Both ends of the old portage route were well-developed to accommodate the needs of the tired traveler. Used for centuries by the Indians, Champlain rested here in 1615. A stone cairn commemorates the signing of the Gunshot Treaty of 1787. (It was by this treaty that the Mississauga Indians relinquished to the Crown all of their lands stretching from the Bay of Quinte westerly to the Etobicoke River, including the City […]
