Welcome to Summer on the 42

Nestled on the shores of Lake Erie, Leamington is home to the Southernmost point of mainland Canada. It's warm, extended summers allow visitors to fully enjoy every month of the season. Dock at the Leamington Marina after a day out on the Lake, or choose to paddle your own adventure with a canoe or kayak rental at Point Pelee National Park. Attend one of Leamington's many summer festivals & events- whether your interests are nature and the great outdoors, art & history, motorcycling, or food & drink- summer #onthe42 has it all. Take a sunset stroll at our breathtaking waterfront, or visit one of our many restaurants that cater to the summer visitor- using fresh, local ingredients that will make your mouth water. Our roadside fruit and vegetable stands are a stone's throw away from our many kilometers of hiking and biking trails and allow you to get a true taste of Leamington. Nowhere else in Canada can you experience a summer like you can #onthe42.

Make a point to visit the famous "Big Tomato", Leamington's Tourist Information Booth, located next to the Arts Centre at 72 Talbot St. W The booth is staffed with knowledgeable volunteers and is managed by the Leamington District Chamber of Commerce.

The Leamington fairground was originally located on the north side of Talbot Street, just east of Leamington. However, due to the rapid growth of the town, the site moved to the south side of Talbot Street East. It moved a final time in 1887 to the site it remains on today in the north-east section of Leamington. The Leamington and Mersea Agricultural Hall was erected on this site, as well as a half-mile track, and a grandstand that could accommodate 500 people.

Don't forget to check out the 170th Leamington Fair going on today through Sunday at the Leamington Fairgrounds!

The Leamington District Fair is one of the oldest agricultural exhibitions in Western Ontario, having been first held in 1848. For many years the Gosfield and Mersea Agricultural Society was the only agricultural society in this district. The Leamington and Mersea Agricultural Society was organized in 1875, and assumed direction of the Fair. For several years the Fair was the third largest agricultural exhibition in the province.

Can you guess as to what this building is known as today?

And don't forget to check out the 170th Leamington Fair this weekend, June 15-17, 2018 at the Leamington Fairgrounds!

Named โ€˜pelรฉeโ€™ by early voyageurs because its shore was โ€˜peeled, stripped or denudedโ€™ of trees. Point Peleeโ€™s rich history has spanned centuries โ€“ the site of early human inhabitants like Indigenous Peoples, French missionaries, British soldiers, and European settlers โ€“ but it wasnโ€™t until the turn of the century that the move to retain The Point as an untouched haven for birds and wildlife began.

Can you guess as to when the second entrance, seen in the photo above, was built?

Hint: the rustic first entrance was built around 1918 and the third one was built in 1960.

Happy #TourismTuesday everyone! ๐ŸŒŽ DYK: Leamington is a destination and temporary home along the migration route for the Monarch Butterflies? Why do monarch butterflies stop in Leamington? Not just for the terrific tourism, art's culture and food! Leamington & Point Pelee are some of the last points to feed before crossing over Lake Erie during the 3000 KM journey to their winter home in the mountains of central Mexico. Point Pelee's green area is a perfect "bed and breakfast" stop for these iconic, beautiful creatures. How have we supported one of our most popular tourists? Over the past 3 years we have established an ongoing monarch butterfly trail. The Municipality and Point Pelee have worked together to plant and maintaining this trail for both the community and butterflies enjoy! Make sure to keep your eyes peeled this fall for Monarchs at Point Pelee and stay tuned for updates on the trail! #experienceLeamington #onthe42 #monarchtrail #pointpelee
