JUST FAR ENOUGH
Within 90-minutes of Toronto, Port Dover's historic main street leads directly to the sandy beaches of Lake Erie where you can swim in shallow, warm water and catch perch off the pier or your boat. With roots dating back to the early 1800's as a thriving fishing community, the town has evolved into a tourist and lakeside-living destination.
Today, with Port Dover's boutique shops, artisanal bakeries, farmers' markets, coffee houses, field-to-table restaurants, Lighthouse Festival Theatre, schools, community centres and service organizations, you get small town charm with big city amenities.
MUCH TO DO or
NOTHING AT ALL
Port Dover is ideally located in easy reach of all that Norfolk County has to offer with its historic villages, recreational activities and bucolic countryside. Known as Ontario's Garden for its agriculture tradition, there's a thriving farm-fresh, innovative culinary scene featuring excellent restaurants, craft wineries and breweries.
Golf courses, cycling and walking trails, zip lining, antique markets, theatre and music events are just some of things to take in - or just relax enjoying the beautiful coasts, rural scenery and wildlife sanctuaries, such as the Long Point World Biosphere designated by the United Nations.
