7 Small Ontario Towns With Big Appeal


1. Picton

Picton is a small, scenic town in delightful Prince Edward County and adjacent to gorgeous, dune-laden Sandbanks Provincial Park. Outside winter months, Picton thrives with tourists who love its lovely landscape and friendly locals, but also everything it offers. With scores of art galleries and studios, quirky souvenir shops, world-class wineries, and excellent beaches, Picton is a holiday destination where you won’t need much else than what’s there. It is renowned for historic, architecturally-significant buildings (many found along Main Street flanked by unique shops), award-winning restaurants, and small, cozy tent vendors in the summer months. Downtown’s Regent Theater plays host to the summer jazz festival and plenty of small theater shows, documentaries, and films. Each year brings more than forty arts, culinary, and cultural fetes across the region but in the summer, most people laze away the days around the marina, dunes and impressive beaches backed by substantial dunes.
