Prince Edward County is located on the eastern shores of Lake Ontario. The County is an idyllic lakeside haven where the world slows down to tractor-pace and time is measured in memories, not moments. 

Located between Toronto and Ottawa (two and three hours’ drive away, respectively), Prince Edward County makes for an ideal lakeside getaway or road-trip stopover. Visitors can fly into Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW), Montreal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) or Kingston Norman Rogers Airport (YGK). 

Referred to as ‘The County’ by those in the know, Prince Edward County is one of Ontario’s most treasured holiday spots, with world-class beaches, resorts and inns, sticky summer treats and an abundance of places to cycle or paddle.

This is your go-to Prince Edward County long weekend bachelor/bachelorette guide. You can use this to plan the perfect 2-3 day bachelor/bachelorette for your brides and grooms.

What to Do

There are a variety of activities available for your bachelorette or bachelor party in the county. Below you’ll find activities outside of my recommended wineries, which you can see below. Here are my favourite activities in PEC if I was planning a bachelor/ bachelorette party here.

Sandbanks National Park

As the world’s largest baymouth barrier dune formation, Sandbanks offers three expansive sandy beaches for your enjoyment. With the popularity of this park, you need to book your day use permit in advance to guarantee entry.

Where to Eat & Drink

Flame & Smith

This restaurant focuses on wood-fired dishes with a sustainability lens. The menu is updated with the seasons. If the burrata dish is available, I’d recommend it as a must-order. 

It is recommended that you make a reservation, as this restaurant is extremely popular and usually doesn’t have space for walk ins. 

La Condesa

Tacos and margaritas… need I say more? No reservations so go early and put your name on the list. Luckily there are a couple bars close by where you can pass the time. 

The Royal Picton Bar

Located in the newly renovated Royal Picton Hotel, stop by the hotel bar where you’ll be greeted by friendly staff. My recommendation is that you sit up at the bar, and order some small plates and a cocktail from the front hotel lobby bar.
