Ontario’s Feel Good Town

"Best. Day. Eva!"



Grab your BFF and hit the boutiques


Fashion in small-town Ontario is more exciting than you might expect. independent boutiques and retail chains offer the trends of the moment and timeless classics – scoring that perfect bag just comes without the traffic and lineups. Browsing the shops is relaxed and best served with a break for latte or lunch at a sidewalk cafe. Bring those walking shoes and save your tall, strappy sandals for evening. The tree-lined heritage downtown has it all covered: wardrobe, gifts, confectionery, unique arts and crafts.


There are friendly daycares for your dog, and restaurants and shaded benches for your better half, should you need some power-shop time. Moonlight madness happens here, too, and those steals don’t last long.


Festival events and sidewalk sales close the main street to vehicles and bring the display racks outdoors, so don’t miss out on the deals – while street performers juggle balls and fire sticks, or dogs paddle down the catwalk in a fashion parade.


There are big-box retailers in town, for your convenience, and Northumberland Mall, at the west end of Cobourg, offers retail chain stores, a cinema and bowling alley.


Handy for the whole gang!

And getting here is just an easy drive from Toronto and Kingston, perfect for a day or weekend getaway.
