Stroll along the canal and visit the shops and restaurants
Watch the Ships Pass Through
Just an hour and a half drive from Toronto, the marine town of Port Colborne is a sunny gem on the South coast. The city of Port Colborne is where the Welland Canal joins with Lake Erie. The canal, which passes through the heart of the city, has been a driver of growth in the community. Stroll the west side of the canal near the Clarence Street Lift Bridge for some of the area's finest shops and restaurants. Also, a great place to watch ships as they pass through. Host to one of the south coast's biggest festivals, Canal Days is a fixture and draws in hundreds of thousands of visitors of all ages. Held during the civic holiday long weekend in August, this is your opportunity to view and tour ships, cruise Lake Erie or the Welland Canal on a tall ship, and join the festivities held throughout town including an exciting concert series.
