A photo of the historic buildings on a street in downtown Port Hope

Adam and I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful town of Port Hope. It was both of our first times in Port Hope, and we were super excited to explore and see what this charming little town had to offer. If you’re into exploring cute small towns, you’ll definitely want to pay a visit.

Here’s how to spend the ultimate weekend in Port Hope!

Toronto to Port Hope

We’d just gotten back from Ireland and Adam was exhausted from doing so much driving, so I took the wheel for this trip. The drive to Port Hope from Toronto is around an hour and 10 minutes, so it actually isn’t too bad. You simply drive east along the 401, and the drive is around 106 km. You can definitely do a day trip in Port Hope, or stay for the weekend if you’d like! There’s definitely enough to do for a fun little weekend trip.
