The small town of Whitby, located in Southern Ontario, was built around its fine natural harbour on Lake Ontario, a key grain shipping port throughout the nineteenth century. The small and friendly town has a breathtaking waterfront, as well as a wealth of parks and trails that are sure to satiate those looking for a little outdoor adventure. Book your stay in one our beautiful Whitby hotels and discover this quaint town’s charm today.
Spend some time getting back to nature at Lynde Shores Conservation Area, where a variety of wildlife, including wild turkeys, blue jays and chipmunk,s make their home. Offer a peanut and be patient—often the little critters will eat right out of your hand! Navigate the trails and marvel at the water features for a peaceful retreat from the hubbub of the town.
For a different kind of adventure, why not charter a boat and try your hand at snaring a walleye or a northern pike? An exhilarating day out on the lake is a must-do for anyone with a keen interest in angling, as well as those simply looking for a wild, wet adventure.
For retail therapy or something to eat and drink, head to Downtown Whitby, and wander along the verandas of Pearson's Lanes where you will find individual boutiques selling a little bit of something for everyone. If you're interested in arts and culture, visit the Station Gallery and enjoy an art exhibition, or take in a show at Whitby Courthouse Theatre.
