Niagara’s vibrant south shores.
A welcoming hospitality and sense of community are strong in Port Colborne, founded in 1833 with the construction of the Welland Canal. At 421 metres, Lock 8 is the longest on the canal and is the second longest canal lock in the world. Attracting tourism since the 1880’s, there is no shortage of recreation and relaxation on its many beaches, Sugarloaf Harbour Marina, and the highly anticipated annual Canal Days festival that has celebrated its marine heritage for more than 40 years. Explore its history throughout the year by visiting The Historical and Marine Museum which consists of seven heritage buildings in the city centre.
