Join us in discovering Kingsville, Ontario’s southernmost town, by watching the second video in the ‘Small Town Getaways’ series, created in conjunction with Ontario’s Southwest and Arienne from See You Soon Travel.

Located along the North shore of Lake Erie, this quaint Victorian town is filled with eclectic boutiques, authentic restaurants, breathtaking outdoor spaces and historic charm.  Take a look at what a weekend getaway is like! Highlights include a self-guided Heritage Walking Tour of the town’s Designated Historic Properties,  chocolate sampling at The Dutch Boys Chocolate GL Heritage Brewing Company and staying at The Grove Hotel in one of their 18 uniquely decorated boutique hotel rooms.

Kingsville has an amazing food scene. Enjoy farm-to-table menus, award-winning wines, house-made burgers & entrees, regional pours and food-focused craft beers.  With everything from the unique Annabelle’s Tea Room (location has permanently closed) located in a 1859 historic home in the heart of Kingsville, to their Main Street neighbours The Grove Brew House and Merlis’ Eatery and Beverage House. Not to be missed is the East-Coast inspired Calabria Coastal Bistro which offers a variety of tastes to meet any palate.  Pairing well with any of the food items served up in Kingsville’s hotspots is a nice glass of wine from Pelee Island Winery.

A visit to Kingsville would not be complete without spending time on the gorgeous trails, parks and sandy beaches. Spend an afternoon biking through lush EPIC Wine County, take a stroll through the picturesque Lakeside Park or play a round of golf on one of the championship courses. Kingsville is a nature lover’s dream.

Allow Kingsville to charm you. Boutique shops line the streets and offer an assortment of unique clothing, desserts, gifts, wellness products, gardening essentials, and so much more. Ensure to set aside ample time to peruse Cindy’s Home and Garden for home decor, gift items and full garden centre.  Pop into one of the bakeries or produce markets and get a taste of local.  Watch to see what a weekend getaway to Kingsville is like!  Whatever it is that you are looking for, you are sure to find it in Kingsville!
