Come for the Adventure…

Choose Cornwall as your destination for adventure, taking advantage of one-of-a-kind trails, conservation areas, historic buildings and an incredible food scene. With so much to offer, Cornwall is always a good choice for a vacation, conference or weekend getaway.

Riverside Trail

Part of the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, the Riverside Trail offers 40 km of paved trail with waterfront views and it’s entirely separate from traffic. The trail runs from east of Cornwall along the St. Lawrence River to Upper Canada Village with twists through a series of islands. Check out museums, breweries and many other noteworthy attractions along the way. Take advantage of complimentary parking at the Cornwall Civic Complex, which is also just steps away from downtown.

Cultured Experiences

Cornwall is one of the most eastern cities in Ontario with borders to Québec, Akwesasne and the United States just a short drive away. The unique location creates easy access to many cultural experiences including authentic Mohawk experiences, tours of Ontario’s oldest jail and the Saunders Hydro Dam Visitor Centre, which tells the story of the largest power project in Canadian history. The culture scene is topped off by an eclectic collection of restaurants showcasing internationally recognized chefs.

…Stay for everything else

Book a night or weekend getaway in one of Cornwall’s many accommodations including Ontario’s oldest inn, Chesley’s Inn. Complimenting the historic inn are many modern hotels as well as camping and yurt experiences for a more adventurous stay. While relaxing in one of Cornwall’s affordable accommodations, why not check out the over 500 available jobs? With an economy that is stronger than ever and a growing business community you just might find the career of your dreams and turn your vacation into your forever home.
