Ideas for a Brockville Girls’ Getaway!

Girl Time

Grab your girls and have a blast in Brockville! Whether you are here for a day, the night, or both, the options are endless for a good time. We’ve come up with a few potential itineraries to help plan your stay!

During the day…

For pampering and relaxation:

Start your morning off with a visit to one of Brockville’s spas, to de-stress, and get pampered of course! It’s sometimes hard to find time to slow down, and do something for you – so this the time to treat yourself to a treatment, mani/pedi, or even an oxygen bar session!

Choose your spa experience from one of the many fabulous spas in Brockville:

Heavenly Touch
Aquala Day Spa
Beauty Inside Spa
1000 Islands Mobile Aesthetics & Spa Parties
Genev Beauty Lounge
Mint Wellness
Rejuvenescence  Day Spa

Afterwards, enjoy a meal together at one of Downtown Brockville’s cafes or restaurants, as many will be walking distance from your visit at the spa! For a list of eateries, click here.

Since you’re already downtown, take some time to pop into the eclectic shops in the Downtown area. You will be sure to find some treasures and good finds, whether you were looking for them or not 😉 Afterwards, why not venture uptown to find even more shopping opportunities, and then head a few minutes east of Brockville on Hwy 2 to 1000 Islands Village. Located in this beautiful property is River West Co., beautiful gift shop, carrying just about everything – from clothing to furniture to home décor! To cap your afternoon off, a caffeine or treat stop may be just what you need! After shopping at River West Co., make a stop at Café Selah in the 1000 Islands Village, for great tasting coffee, and mouth-watering baked goods!

For adventure and sightseeing:

If spas aren’t you and your girls’ thing, not a problem! The outdoors are calling and Brockville’s got some great ways to experience the city out in the fresh air! Why not start your day off with a cycle tour with Thousand Islands Bicycle Co. The 2.5 hour Brockville City Tour takes you around “the City of the 1000 Islands”, boasting historical buildings of all sorts, gleaming waterfront, and vibrant downtown core at a leisurely pace.

After working up an appetite, indulge in your pick of cuisine, perhaps something to take away and eat by the waterfront – Fish & Chips, a mouth-watering Shawarma, or a juicy burger. After lunch, it’s time to get out on the river! Sit back and relax aboard a cruise with 1000 Islands & Seaway Cruises (for the thrill seekers, hop on board the Wildcat!). If you’d like to explore the river and islands at your own pace, we recommend renting a kayak or canoe with Dive Brockville or Gilbert Marine. Glide through the water, taking in the beautiful scenery surrounding you. Stop off at one of the City Islands to take a break, take a dip, and have a few laughs with the girls!

During the evening…

The perfect night starts off with a delicious dinner (and maybe a few beverages as well!). On a beautiful summer night, you can’t beat dining el fresco, and Brockville has many restaurants that offer outdoor patios!

After your meal, it’s time to enjoy live entertainment at the Brockville Arts Centre. Along with their Summer Series and great shows in between, you will be sure to find a show to peak everyone’s interest! After the show, pop into one of Brockville’s bars/pubs for a glass of wine, or craft beer. Many will have live bands performing during the weekend, and you just might have to break out your dancing shoes!

These are just a few activities to help plan your day(s) in Brockville. If you’re looking to spend the evening, Brockville offers great options for your overnight stay – click here for a listing!
