A new adventure into an old tradition

A new adventure into an old tradition

River cruises have continued to grow in popularity over the past few years, but the tradition dates back to the 19th century. In many ways, it is like modern travelers have rediscovered the classic combination of relaxation, comfort, and intimacy that these journeys provide. In North America, St. Lawrence Cruise Lines has the distinction of being the most experienced river cruise operator in the magnificent St. Lawrence River region, and the company is proud to be celebrating its 40th season on the river in 2020. This experience comes with a tremendous knowledge and understanding of the geography of the region that allows St. Lawrence Cruise Lines to deliver cruises that are tremendously detailed and full of value.

A river without end

For many Canadians, the St. Lawrence River is part of our local geography. What makes the St. Lawrence so attractive to travelers?

  1. The St. Lawrence River is enormous. The river proper, at 774 miles in length, runs northeast from Lake Ontario towards the Atlantic, where it forms the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This magnificent river is still fairly young, having formed only about 10,000 years ago. It is at its most striking in September and October, when its shores become a kaleidoscope of fall colours.
  2. Settlers began constructing canals along parts of the river as early as 1783. In 1954, Canada and the United States agreed on the mutual construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power project, connecting Montreal to Lake Erie. The Seaway opened in 1959 and celebrated its 60-year anniversary in 2019.
  3. The 1000 Islands includes 1,865 islands and hundreds of miles of picturesque coastline. This region features both the beauty of nature and historic attractions that include museums, forts, fairy-tale castles, and national parks. The entire region is a giant playground with fantastic boating, swimming, hiking and bird watching.
  4. The St. Lawrence River connects English and French Canada, and traveling the river is a journey between two cultures. The old world charm of the Province of Quebec feature landscapes, ecosystems, architecture, food, and cities that are unlike anywhere in North America.
  5. The Ottawa River is the chief tributary of the St. Lawrence River, with the southeast part of the river acting as the Quebec–Ontario provincial border. Over 790 miles, the river forms innumerable lakes, and it became a chief route of explorers and fur traders, and lumberers in the early 19th century. The economic activity generated by these industries led to Ottawa becoming the national capital. The city is now famous for its numerous museums and galleries, as well as Canada’s parliament buildings.

Make the river your home

The Canadian Empress is a nostalgic replica steamboat with 64-passenger capacity, and a warm and friendly personality. This makes it the perfect way to experience calm-water cruising, and explore the unique beauty and rich history of the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers. The size and design of the vessel serves to enhance the intimacy and authenticity of the river cruise experience. The interior of the vessel is full of charming brass furnishings and ornate metal ceilings, and this classic steamboat style has been combined with modern engineering and amenities to enhance comfort, security and relaxation.

This ship will carry you through the very heart of Canada’s most beautiful scenery, on routes specifically selected for their stunning gifts of history, natural beauty and modern vitality. This is a chance to see a side of Canada and the United States that can only be viewed from the shared waters of the St. Lawrence River, from the charming bays and inlets of the 1000 Islands, to the locks and canals of the International Seaway and beyond to the old world culture of Quebec.

Cruises run from May to October with departures from Kingston, Ottawa, and Quebec City. For more information about St. Lawrence Cruise Lines, visit stlawrencecruiselines.com or call 1.800.267.7868.

It’s all about the lifestyle and the locations

Baby boomer or not, it’s a freeing time of life when you get to make choices in terms of how you want to spend your time and where you want to live.

Seniors now outnumber young people, and it’s this portion of the population that are being catered to by lifestyle builders. There are lots of choices out there, but Kaitlin Corporation emphasizes both components when developing a new community – life and style.

Determine the must-haves on your wish list. Do you want to live by the water? Or maybe next to a championship golf course? Or does living in an historic small town appeal to you? Chances are that Kaitlin Corporation has exactly what you’re looking for.

“Location has always been a major consideration for our communities,” says Bill Daniell, president of Kaitlin Corporation. “We take pride in how well-built our homes are. But beyond that, we know it’s really important for our owners to live in a great setting. They want to have amenities tied to their quality of living, such as trails, parks and water – right at their doorstep.”

HARBOURVIEW GRAND

If you’re passionate about living close to the lake, then check out Kaitlin’s newest condominium project – Harbourview Grand in Port of Newcastle. Here, you can enjoy maintenance-free homes with waterfront views, a fabulous trail system that runs parallel to Lake Ontario and a local, waterfront marina if your boat also needs a home. For easy access to the GTA, both GO transit and Highway 401 are nearby.

BAYPORT VILLAGE

If a more cottage-like setting is your cup of tea, Bayport Village is adjacent to the local marina on Georgian Bay. Bayport Village is connected to the thriving community of Midland by an in-town trail system, and is only 90 minutes north of Toronto.

LOYALIST COUNTRY CLUB

A little further east is a community that is being built around a championship golf course, which has hosted Canadian PGA tournaments. Loyalist Country Club takes advantage of an onsite clubhouse and restaurant, as well as an active social club, and is a short drive to local parks, award-winning wineries and the city of Kingston.

MODO CONDOS AND TOWNS

Located in Bowmanville, residents of MODO Towns are able to walk to local shops and restaurants, and enjoy everything that living in a charming, historic town has to offer. The common thread that ties together all Kaitlin Corporation communities are the outstanding models, which combine exceptional floorplans, design features, finishing touches and upgrades to provide you the style, and the life, that you’re looking for.
