An early spring #onthe42 sees new life and growth brought into the region. Not only do visitors get a chance to witness the first new blooms of the season, but Leamington is also directly in the migratory path of dozens of bird species. Beginning in the first week of May, through to the end of May, Point Pelee National Park features the Festival of Birds- which helps transform our community into a birders paradise.
Warm weather and early melting snow gives you the opportunity to dust off your bike or motorcycle and cruise along our motorcycling route or many community trails. Along your way, stop at any of our roadside fruit and vegetable stands and pick up fresh seasonal produce grown right here in Leamington.
After the May long weekend, make a point to visit the famous "Big Tomato", Leamington's Tourist Information Booth, located next to the Arts Centre at 72 Talbot St. W The booth is staffed with knowledgeable volunteers and is managed by the Leamington District Chamber of Commerce.
Explore the shorelines, skies, treetops and trails of one of North America’s best birding locales. The South Coast Birding Trail map below is a great resource that will quickly bring you up to speed on the region’s top spots for finding feathered friends.
