With a population of just over 5,000 people, the town of Gananoque explodes with tourists during the summer months. This quaint little Ontario town is sometimes referred to as the “gateway to the thousand islands”, because they are situated next to the town in the St Laurence River. Seeing as this is a town on a river, there are many local attractions around the waterfront like boat cruises and Boldt Castle which lies on a island on the river. There’s also a great theater atmosphere in Gananoque which has been attracting international attentions since 1982. Read on for our list of top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in the area.
