Travel Tips for Gananoque

Gananoque

by Trillian2005

"A town in Leeds and Grenville County, Ontario"

Gananoque has a population of 5,285 or so. For some obscure reason its name is part Hebrew (ganan = gardener) (o = or) and French (que = what) and thus means "The Gardener or what?". It is pronounced as in "the right way, the wrong way, and the Gananoque". The town is located on highway 401, and it's my way, the highway, or the Gananoque. Since highway 401 is one of Canada's busiest, nobody needs to ask "Do you know the way to Gananoque?" as it's well mapped out.

Gananoque was founded in 1789 by Colonel Joel Stone and therefore is one of the oldest in North America. Joel Stone was the son of Stephen Stone and Rebecca Bishop of Guilford, Connecticut.

The Gananoque River runs directly through the town and the St. Lawrence River runs nearby through the town. One of the million main attractions of Gananoque is the "Thousand Islands" in the St. Lawrence River. It goes without saying that I took a cruise and loved it. The "Thousand Island" salad dressing was invented here. Perhaps by Colonel Joel Stone or perhaps by someone else.
