Why visit Prince Edward County?

When United Empire Loyalists first inhabited Prince Edward County they probably never imagined that the picturesque island they called home would become one of the most sought-out tourist destinations in Ontario. Named the “Gastronomic Capital of Ontario” by The Globe and Mail, and one of the world’s best travel hot spots by The Toronto Star, Prince Edward County has graduated from its rural roots.

It maintains its compelling nature from centuries past—its authenticity, agricultural prowess and physical beauty. Only now, its burgeoning culture of fine dining, local food and artisanal products, arts and entertainment, and outdoor adventure set it apart.
