Ontario’s most beautiful city, Elora, will transport you with its old-world charm including stone buildings more than two centuries old. Take a walk down the main street lined with unique shops and art studios that will impress even the most seasoned shopper. Delightful restaurants and cafes will open their doors with warmth and character, sharing decadent local meals that are sure to please.

Elora’s natural beauty is rich in farmland, rolling hills, and cliffs, including the famous Elora Gorge that banks the Grand and Irvine Rivers. Those with an adventurous spirit can kayak and tube along the rapids, while others looking for a more relaxed experience can hike and walk along the trails that line the 80 foot limestone cliff.

This small community in the township of Centre Wellington, Wellington County, is just shy of 4,000 residents, making for a truly intimate lifestyle. Located in the middle between Guelph and Kitchener-Waterloo, you’re just 20 minutes from larger communities with additional amenities and services.
