As you can read on the Kawarathas Northumberland website, “Northumberland County is your four-season tourism destination that offers Unique Experiences, all just an hour east of Toronto. Whether you’re looking to spend time on the trails, browse boutiques and specialty shops, feast on culinary delights, or catch up on some R&R, Northumberland County is the place for you.
Quaint small towns and villages are just a short drive from one another and from the larger urban sites of Cobourg and Port Hope in Northumberland County. Located on the Highway of Heroes (Hwy 401) and surrounded by lakes and rivers, Northumberland is easy to reach by car, bus, rail and boat. Boaters can choose from many access points along Lake Ontario, while VIA Rail runs parallel to the shoreline.”
