What To Do In Wellington

Boasting  a Stunning Beach with a boardwalk and a lighthouse on the shore of Lake Ontario, views of Sandbanks West Lake Sand Dunes, Fine dining, ice cream parlours, cafes, award-winning wineries, lively pubs and bars, Heritage Museum and a variety of art galleries/studios, Wellington has it all.

Browse art galleries and studios of painters, potters, jewellers, a glass blower and other artists, all within walking distance of each other. Walk from winery to winery or hop on the free summer bus and take a wine tour without the worry of driving

In the centre of the village is the community waterfront park which features a children’s playground and gazebo and hosts a weekly farmers market and several live events throughout the year.

The harbour has docking facilities with Canada Border Services (for boaters arriving from the United States). You can also purchase fishing equipment and licenses from the tackle shop and rent Kayaks/Canoes, paddleboards, boats and even charter fishing trips from the marina.
