Located between Brockville and Gananoque just off the 401, Balleycanoe & Co. creates some fabulous folk art out of bits and pieces salvaged from 19th century Ontario farms. Whether its fence posts transformed into snowmen, tin roofs to bird houses or barnwood into angels the creative whimsy is worth the visit.
Lancaster Ontario straddles highway 401 between Cornwall and the Quebec border. For years something called a perch roll - perch fillets, onions and a sweet "secret" sauce cradled in a hot dog bun - has enjoyed a certain amount of local fame. At Canadian Roadflix we're always intrigued by tales of regional road food so we headed off to find out if the Lancaster Perch Rolls served in local restaurants measured up to the legend.
One of the surprising highlights of our road trip to Prince Edward Island, Canada was the evening we spent at the Charlottetown racetrack as "owners" of a race horse.

I even got a chance to sit with the starting judge in the mobile gate.
