Ontario is home to some of the most scenic outdoor experiences in the entire country. And this one takes the cake. If you’re looking for the ultimate summer road trip, we’ve got just the thing. The picturesque drive along the Long Sault Parkway in Ontario takes you through almost a dozen islands, all interconnected by one winding road.

Just east of Toronto, past Kingston, is where you’ll find Long Sault Parkway.

This picture-perfect route connects you to 11 islands on the St. Lawrence River between Cornwall and Brockville.

In the summer, it is the perfect spot to explore its beaches and campgrounds. It’s worth the day trip.

According to St Lawrence Parks, the Long Sault Parkway is a series of islands that “were created from high points of land left after the flooding of the St. Lawrence River during the construction of the Seaway in the 1950’s.”

“In fact, several villages once stood where the river now lies, a fascinating story captured at the Lost Villages display on Macdonell Island.”

If you’re feeling a little adventurous and love to explore it on a bike, you are free to do so. It is a lengthy ride but definitely worth your while.

But make sure to plan your trip for the summer season as the parkway closes mid-November.

Now this is what we call a summer road trip!
