We will drive tens of kilometers along the Erie coastline, visiting Ports of Stanley, Bruce and Burwell. Before we begin to explore the ports of Erie County, we will make a stop in Aylmer, known for having a large Amish and Mennonite communities. The town is also known for its downtown bakeries and boutiques, and very well maintained beautiful parks. We will taste wine at the local winery Rush Creek Wines. This winery is located two miles from the shores of Lake Erie; 23 types of wines are made here from fruits grown in the region. Port Stanley boasts one of the finest sandy beaches on the north shore of Lake Erie. The town is a popular tourist destination, drawn to natural attractions such as Kettle Creek and the multitude of leisure boats that frequent its banks. Port Stanley is home to the historic King George VI Lift Bridge, the oldest in Ontario, located in the centre of town. You will walk through the Port Stanley’s picturesque downtown core and will be delighted by the numerous quaint boutiques that dot the streets, and by the delicious culinary treats that await you at Port Stanley’s many dining establishments. Port Stanley is home to an active artist’s community, several art galleries, and an annual art show. In the former fishing village of Port Bruce, there is now a provincial park of the same name adjacent to the lake, which we will visit. You can often see fishermen on the pier. Port Burwell is a hidden gem in Elgin County The town is completely walkable and only has a permanent population of about 1,000 people. Once this town was famous for building ships, fishing, exporting timber, ships moored here with coal from Pennsylvania. One of the local attractions is the lighthouse, built in the 1840s and one of the most significant maritime historical sites of Lake Erie. The lighthouse was restored in 1986 by a group of Mennonite craftsmen from the Aylmer area. It offers an unforgettable panoramic view of the village and the waterfront area. Another attraction is a Cold War submarine that we will see. The local beach has the status of the Blue Flag. There are two marinas here. After exploring Port Burwell, we will head to Toronto.
