It’s the coolest spot when the weather is hot. Wellington is located directly on the north shore of Lake Ontario. The village boasts a central position amongst the many wineries in the Prince Edward County VQA wine region.
Wellington Rotary Beach, just a short stroll from downtown, has a stony beach and boardwalk leading to an iconic lighthouse. Many of Wellington’s original settlers were United Empire Loyalists whose descendants still live in the village. In fact, one of Ontario’s oldest homes, built in 1786, is nestled right in town.
Just up the street you can visit the weekly farmers’ market. Stroll the market stands overlooking the lake’s sparkling waters and pick up art, clothing, jewelry, crafts, baked goods, and of course, locally-grown fruits & veg. Stay in a cozy B&B, inn or lakeside cottage. Fuel yourself at some of the best eateries, ranging from cheery cafés to true gourmet restaurant experiences. Wellington is a great home base to spend a few days tasting local wines, browsing pottery, painting, glassworks and more at local galleries and studios.
