Port Hope is also known for its well-preserved historic architecture, including many Victorian and Edwardian homes and buildings. The downtown area is home to a variety of independent shops, restaurants, and cafes, which provide plenty of options for shopping, dining, and entertainment and is acclaimed for being the best-preserved 19th-century streetscape in Ontario.
