Discover Things To Do

Port Dover & Norfolk County

As part of Ontario's South Coast, visitors come from all over to discover our beautiful shores for the shops, beaches, wineries, gardens, trails and resort amenities.

The number one draw to Port Dover is the beach and harbour front. Shopping features everything from artisan soaps, decor, fashion and antiques to surf and cycle shops. Go for a dinner cruise on Lake Erie or take in a live show at Light House Festival Theatre. Enjoy live music at one of the many annual festivals and on most summer nights. We have cafés, dairy bars, bistros, eateries, restaurants, fine dining, patios, pubs and of course all the fresh perch and pickerel you can eat. Check out the Silver Lake Farmers market every Saturday and enjoy the sunrise or sunset from the pier. Or take a short drive and discover Norfolk County.
