The County’s South Shore is made up of farms, limestone shorelines, and the (temporary) home of migrating birds. The South Shore is a natural gem.
The hamlets of Cherry Valley, Milford and Black River each have their own unique charm. In Cherry Valley you can laugh alongside locals during a comedy show at the quaint town hall. See the prize-winning chickens behind Mount Tabor Playhouse during the Milford Fall Fair. Black River is surrounded by multi-generational farms producing everything from honey to heirloom tomatoes. While you’re there, don’t miss its iconic cheese factory, Black River Cheese.
Shallow shoreline waters reveal trilobite and horn coral fossils and support thriving ecosystems. At the eastern tip, The Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area encompasses the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory. Outdoor adventure seekers will be keen to dive in to shipwreck sites, scan the skies for more than 30 species of warblers or cycle lilac-lined roads to nowhere.
