The lakeside town of Kingsville is one of Ontario’s southernmost communities. In fact, it shares the same latitude as northern California and enjoys the warmest climate in Canada.
Thanks to its favourable temperatures and proximity to Lake Erie, the town and surrounding region is one of the most agriculturally productive regions in the province. Visitors will find farms, vineyards and greenhouses that provide fresh produce for Kingsville restaurants, cafes and farm stands.
The town is also known for popular events like Kingsville Open Streets and the Kingsville Folk Festival.
