SOUTHWEST ONTARIO


View a map of this region.

We love seeing the look that spreads across visitors’ faces when they learn that the southern tip of our region dips onto the same latitudinal plain as northern California. The expression of disbelief quickly turns into a satisfied grin when they realize they’ve discovered a getaway destination that offers world-class freshwater beaches and water sports, some of the continent’s best birding, a rapidly evolving wine and culinary scene and the friendliest communities on the planet.

Now that we’ve let you in on the secret, it’s time to come and discover it for yourself. Use our website to learn more about the world-class waterfronts, best-in-class birding, wonderful wineries, fabulous festivals, and so many ways to play that are found on and in between our Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair and Lake Huron shorelines.
