What's it like in PEC?

Hi, after spending 5 nights in Toronto, 5 in NY, I night in Vermont and then 3 in Quebec City (all accommodation booked so far), we originally planned to spend 2 further nights in Montreal (12th and 13th April). However our flight home is from Toronto 19.15 on 14th and we have to fly back from there as we are dropping daughter off downtown.

Staying two nights is not the problem it's just that we'll have a long drive approx 6 hours from Montreal to Toronto airport including the drop off in town, on the day of the flight.

One idea is to pass through Montreal and stay elsewhere perhaps just a couple of hours travelling time from the airport? I've been looking at other areas of interest in Ontario to see what we can do.

As we are doing the 'cities' on this trip and seeing the main sights etc., it may be nice to take in a bit of scenery/ small town/ village life/ countryside prior to leaving. I've checked out maps for Prince Edward county and areas around the lake but looking for some recommendations really.

We're more than happy to stay in inns, B and B's etc and enjoy the outdoors so perhaps some walking trails?

Any ideas greatly appreciated :)

Prince Edward County and the adjoining Northumberland County are wonderful places. April is something of a transition month here in the rural areas ... weatherwise you can get rain, chilly temps ... or sun. Spring is slowly showing its face. There are many places to hike in both counties - I'm not a hiker, so can't help a lot with that. Not sure what shape trails would be in. PEC is known for its wineries and food production. There are many inns and B&B's. Here is the tourism link for PEC - you might check the Calendar of Events for those days.

Northumberland County is filled with many picturesque historical towns, the Northumberland Hills, and the Ganaraska Forest. There is tree-top trekking in the Forest. Again - many inns & B&B's for accommodation. Here is the link for Northumberland tourism, and again - check the Calendar.

In addition to wineries and bucolic farm country, Prince Edward County is known for the beaches and dunes of Sandbanks Provincial Park. Might be too cold to swim in April, but the dunes would still be neat to explore and there are some trails available. There's certainly no shortage of inns and B&Bs in the County.

If you're looking for hiking in more rugged country, you might be better off a little to the east and north in the "Frontenac Axis" region.
