WELCOME TO HURON COUNTY

Huron County is the most agriculturally productive county in Ontario and the people that live here are proud of that fact. Drive along the county lines and side roads on a sunny, warm day in July and this is what you may see:

A cloud of chaff billowing around a combine as the farmer harvests a vast field of ripe golden grain. Fledging corn stalks reaching toward the sky – knee high by the fourth of July, as the old saying goes! Dairy cattle lazing under a shade tree in the pasture waiting for the inevitable call to head to the barn for the evening milking. Unmanned fresh vegetable and fruit stands set up at the end of long farm laneways where customers are trusted to leave the correct change.

It all sounds like a bit of a throwback to another era, doesn’t it? Well, as steeped in tradition as Huron County residents are they aren’t afraid to embrace the modern age. And as agriculture production evolves so does their way of life. There are few places in Ontario more adaptable than Huron County and both agri-tourism and eco-tourism are part of that evolution. Mixed in with the fields of soybeans, grains, and corn those out for a drive will also discover fields of hops, grapes, sunflowers and lavender.

So welcome to Huron County – our residents are happy to share all the blessings, bounty and abundance that can be found within these borders. We invite you to stay awhile, breathe deeply, walk barefoot on the beach, savour a sunset and relax. You’ve earned this time. You are on vacation and you couldn’t have chosen a greater place to spend it!

Make the most of your Huron County Adventure

Book ahead

During the high season, reservations are often required for Huron’s attractions and restaurants. Plan ahead to make sure you don’t miss out!

Get off the beaten path 

Some of Huron’s best attractions are off the beaten path. Don’t be afraid to venture into Huron’s countryside for a truly unique experience.

Water Shoes are recommended

Huron’s beaches are maintained naturally to protect our delicate shoreline ecosystems. This means that in many places the water’s edge can be a little rocky. If you plan to swim, bring a pair of water shoes to make your experience more enjoyable.

Bring a cooler or two

Huron’s locally grown food is fresh and delicious. Whether you’re coming for a day or  a week, make sure you’re prepared to bring the flavours of Huron home with you.

Meet the locals

We want to get to know you.  If you have a question, ask literally anyone you see. We will be happy help you make the most of your Huron adventure.
