The village of Westport was incorporated as an independent municipality in 1904, and is one of Ontario’s smallest municipalities. The first settlers to the Westport area arrived in the period between 1810 and 1820. Like much of the surrounding area, Westport received a large number of Irish immigrants in the 1840s through the 1860s, following the Great Famine.

One of the most attractive features is the charming specialty shops in which you’ll find unique and attractive items. Here’s a peak at some of the things you’ll see.

|This has to be the most interesting thing I saw.|
Isn’t this area lovely? There’s no question that I’m always happiest by the water.
Both visits included a wonderful lunch on the patio of the restaurant in The Cove Country Inn, which overlooks the Westport Pond. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is relaxing and the view is spectacular.

|This is such a beautiful spot to relax in.|
|We didn't get our ice cream from here, but I love the sign.|
I hope you enjoyed this week's tour. Have a beautiful Sunday, everyone.
