Visit Simcoe Ontario

Simcoe, Ontario

Named for John Graves Simcoe in 1795, the first Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the town was originally two separate hamlets. The current downtown started as Birdtown, named by William Bird, who settled in the early 1800s.

The north end of town, now known as “the Queensway”, was originally called Theresaville (in honour of Robert Nichol’s wife) as it grew around Aaron Culver’s saw and grist mill in the 1820s. When the post office established in 1829, Culver’s suggestion of Simcoe was approved. When the Talbot District formed in 1837, Simcoe became the seat of local government, a designation that has continued to modern day.

Port Dover Beach

Port Dover is a beautiful and quiet resort town with friendly people and, of course, the scenic beach. Jump into the water for a relaxing swim or soak up the sun on the sand for that South Coast tan. The pier is a focal point for anglers, couples in love, and seniors watching the fishing tugs return with their catches. If you want to hit the open water, the waterfront boasts a great marina and charter tours.
