Port Hope in the Tourism Region: Kawarthas Northumberland
Port Hope is a pretty and well kept little town on Lake Ontario.
The population is about 16 000.
Whenever we drove to Montreal we left HWY 401 to enjoy lunch in downtown.
We love to see nicely restored heritage buildings.
Whenever the weather allows it we sit outside to watch the people and the scenery.
When we talked to the waitress we learned that every year a guided tour is offered to see all these landmarks houses and churches. Unfortunately we never participated so far.
The Town Hall - many thanks to "Hermann Luyken" and Wikipedia
Port Hope has also an unique theater which should give visitors to be outside. Ask for the "Capitol Theatre". Unfortunately, we missed to visit it.
We were told that it had been renovated. But we would not recognize those changes. Not only theater is performed there. Please watch the video below.
As you can see it is very often worth to exit from a big highway to visit small towns. Good restaurants and friendly people are the reward.
We had a delicious lunch here
Port Hope did a great job in maintaining downtown. Many other places missed the opportunity to do that. Heritage buildings and people enjoying downtown create a special flair.
After our lunch we walked a little be around and were very pleased what we saw and discovered. For us it was more interesting than the big shopping malls with all the chain stores.
Many thanks to the majors and the councils who achieved that!

I hope you feel like us and that you do not want to glow during the night.
Port Hope is known to store the largest amount of low level radioactive waste in Canada. It was left over when radium extracted from uranium ore to make luminous colors and fight cancer.
So you get here for free what you have to pay extra in Germany to expose yourself in caves of a "healing" Radon irradiation.
As far as I know, Port Hope is still waiting for a place to be found that wants the garbage and that it will be disposed of.
We did not have a Geiger counter and will not buy "Online" at the moment. We still like to come back to Port Hope for another visit. However, we hope that the nuclear power plant in nearby Newcastle is safe.
Visit Port Hope and explore the surrounding area. There is always something to discover or do.
Visit nearby Cobourg, Rice Lake, take a tour in the blue.
