Looking to paddle your troubles away this summer? Make the trip to the Thousand Islands National Park, where you can paddle past small islands, cottages, shipwrecks, and even castles along a network of scenic kayaking routes.
The 1000 Islands are a kayaker's paradise. They consist of small rivers and intricate channels that carve through the rocky island terrain, making them the perfect place to explore via kayak. You can choose to go on a guided tour with one of the regional outfitters in the area, or go off on your own adventure with friends.
You can follow the Thousand Islands Water Trail, featuring nine interconnected routes that stretch through the park's main areas:
The routes are either full-day or half-day adventures, each offering entirely different kayaking experiences with their own unique points of interest to watch for. For example, the Kingston Isles Trail lets you see the Cataraqui Marsh, Kingston Mills, and Old Fort Henry, which are all historic sites in the region. The Brock Isles, on the other hand, lead you to more natural locations, such as St. Lawrence Park, Henry Park, and Skeleton Island.
Make sure to check out this great online guide book for detailed descriptions, maps, and planning tips for each route.
The Thousand Islands Water Trail is perfect for both day excursions and extended tripping, however, it's advised that you spend a good amount of time planning as there many things to see.
Watch your back, drivers — speed cameras are about to go up at 50 new locations around Toronto.
The City announced on Friday that the Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) devices will be relocated to various parts of the city this coming June. The devices issued a whopping 81,557 tickets in the first three months of this year — 28,231 came from a single camera on Sheppard Avenue East, west of Don Mills Road.
"This will help to reduce speeding at more areas with safety concerns, encourage a wide-ranging deterrent effect, and raise public awareness about the need to slow down and obey posted speed limits", said the City's news release.
Of the 50 devices, Scarborough will have the largest share, with at least 12 being installed in the region. Etobicoke will have six ASE devices, as well as streets around Don Valley. Other areas include Spadina-Fort York, the Beaches, Eglinton-Lawrence, Black Creek, York — a complete list of the locations can be found here.
The City notes that while you can expect to get hit with a fine if you're caught speeding, tickets issued by the devices won't lead to demerit points or affect your driving record.
