Cobourg is a delightful town, located on the shore of Lake Ontario, with many charming features most notable of which is a large public beach and marina. This is one of the only public free beaches on the Lake and attracts thousands of people during the summer.
The main street (King St – old Highway 2) has been lovingly restored and the centrepiece is old Victoria Hall which contains a Concert Hall, and many other interesting historical features.
The town has lovely old neighbourhoods mixed with more modern suburban residential areas.
Being a slightly larger town than Port Hope shopping is very good and ranges from small boutiques to larger “big-box” style stores.
Only a 10 minute drive away from Port Hope means that all the restaurants and theatre is easily accessible to resident in both towns.
