What I love about traveling is how we all have our own idea of what we like and don’t like in certain towns or places. One person’s favorite place could be hated by someone else. It’s so easy to go off reccomendations of people, but do your research and go where you want!
Numerous people told me that you don’t need to spend any time in Picton – it’s simply where the ferry drops you off/picks you up, but then you should be on your way.
I ended up booking two nights here and am so glad I did, and that I didn’t listen! 🙂
While it’s a small town, the scenery is absolutely gorgeous and there’s so much to do outdoors – hiking, kayaking, renting boats, sailing, etc.
Yesterday I went on a gorgeous hike with an amazing view looking down on the town, while today I went on a hike out towards the Queen Charlotte Sound.
It was called Snout Trail and leads you to the end of a peninsula with incredible views. Below is the pic from yesterday’s hike – today I walked out to the end of the peninsula that’s just about in the middle of the picture.
Overall a gorgeous hike and I’m so happy I stayed in Picton!
