Gananoque is a fantastic stop to gamble, there is a casino right off the 401, and grab a tour of the 1000 Islands.
This town has a lot going for it, hotdog vendors on the waterfront, a modest beach, marina, hotels, fun dining with 45cent wings and a band but it always leaves me asking what this town of 5500 is.
Is this a quaint town, a gamblers paradise, a fine dining stop, a roadhouse caravan or a family getaway.
Don't get me wrong Ganaoque has a lot going on and a lot going for it but the town and business groups need to work on a unified identity, image and run with it.
2 hour free parking on the beachfront is great.
Amazing ice cream sold right in front of the tour boat launch.
More history than you can shake a Lonely Planet Guide at but I am always left wanting a better commercial cultural mix.
So my verdict is as you cruise the 401 between Montreal and Toronto plan 2 hours in Ganaoque take a cruise, eat some ice cream, check out the antiques and enjoy.
Fun is there to be had the beach and fun water area are free!
And plenty of free toilets!
