When you take a scenic country drive throughout the Municipality’s quaint hamlets and villages you will spot century old churches with historic cemeteries, one room school houses now made into residences, charming mills and maybe even an old tobacco kiln that will attest to country life as it was not so very many years ago.
Lush rolling hills and pastoral farmlands make for beautiful photo opportunities as well as vistas of Lake Ontario and Rice Lake that can be seen from Richardson’s Lookout in Garden Hill. If you loop around the countryside and travel along historic Lakeshore Road through the Village of Wesleyville, the old one room brick schoolhouse and United Church will take you back in time.
For a stunning view of Lake Ontario, follow along Lakeshore Road into downtown Port Hope’s heritage conservation district.
