Wellington, Prince Edward County
Life is yours to celebrate in Wellington where the lake joins the sky and a refreshing breeze brings a wave of revitalization. Wellington has become a hot spot tourist destination bursting with boutiques, galleries, Festival Players theatre, casual and fine dining, nightlife, library, places of worship, golfing, a waterfront park, beach and boardwalk.
Indulge in small scale urban living, where a stroll to the Village to meet friends for a cappuccino, to gather fresh vegetables or artisan bread at the farmers market, or to visit the historic library for the latest good read are a part of everyday living.
Evenings promise fabulous casual dining in a selection of notable restaurants including favourites such as East & Main or the trendy Drake Devonshire…. Perhaps followed by a cocktail and jazz performance at Staches lounge, a stop at the Midtown microbrewery or a stroll on the beach boardwalk!
Savour all that the beautiful island of Prince Edward County offers. There is something for everyone. It is rife with wineries and vineyards, acclaimed as one of Canada’s newest VQA wine regions, and has distinguished itself among foodies for its organic farms, wineries, breweries and artisan cheese factories.
