Prince Edward County Beaches

 

So you have probably heard that Sandbanks has the best beaches around, putting everything else to shame. While the coastline is majestic, there is more than just one beach to consider for your excursion. 

Consider North Beach Provincial Park, on the west-side of the Island near Concecon.

See a Belleville Senators Game

Everyone is familiar with the NHL, the top-tier hockey league in the world. 

Have you ever heard of the AHL?

So the "Wayne Gretzkys" are not born; they are developed.

In other words, they have to work their way up to the pros.

The Sens are affiliated with Ottawa, trading players back and forth.

This is top-level hockey.

Some say that it is even more aggressive than the NHL, due to the players competing for the limelight

They play at the CAA Area, located on Cannifton Road. 

If you are looking to score some tickets, simply click on the team logo above. 

You will be directed to Ticketmaster.

*Just a brief caveat

AHL games have been on hold due to the pandemic.

If you game is cancelled for any reason, they issue a credit back to the card.

If you ask me, Bourbon Street Grill is the best!

Tyendinaga Mohawk Reserve
Tyendinaga native reserve

Native Canadians have inhabited this land for thousands of years. While many live modern lives, there is a concentrated effort to keep their noble traditions alive. While Aboriginal territories are within federal borders, they have their own laws and regulations. While "Status Indians" are given a reduction on retail taxes, this usually does not apply to others. However, you will still find that prices are cheaper when compared to Trenton or Belleville.

With the carbon tax taking effect, gas prices have risen astromatically in the past year or so. You can comfortably expect to save10-20 cents per litre, a tidy sum for larger capacity vehicles. 

You cannot miss the gas stations as they are literally everywhere. One has to wonder if there are more cannabis shops or gas stations, both extremely popular with tourist and townies alike.

Native art is pretty awesome. It reflects the natural landscape, emphasising domestic animals, plants, spiritual dimentions. You can buy tasteful decorations for your house or comfy moccassins for your feet!
