Planes, Trains and Automobiles
The Port Elgin Airport is a small but convinient way to travel to and from the town for some of the visitor's. It operates 7 days a week during the months of June/July/August, only on weekends during the off season and is closed between the months of November to April.
Young or Old The Station is for everyone who wants to get a quick tour of the harbour and surrounding areas. It's a fun and inexpensive way to see it all. 4$/child or 5$/adult will grant you full view of the lake, the beach, the little parks, the boats as well as the restaurants and fishermen!
It's a 3 and a half hour drive for me from Toronto/Pickering but as you can see the location is great. Far enough away from the city but close enough to reality!
