Have you seen us around town?
Shawn Micallef, Living Columnist for the Toronto Star has published a wonderful piece celebrating our town.
"Port Credit is new and old Mississauga at the same time; a small town for its residents and a waterfront downtown for everybody else."

Alive with festivals and events, food and entertainment and a gorgeous marina, Port Credit offers an abundance of fun and excitement. On foot or by boat, day or night, Port Credit is a destination unlike any other. Like the Lighthouse that beckons from the mouth of the Credit River: Port Credit... Always on. Always electric!

Opening his article by describing Port Credit as "the most happening area in the 905", Peter Kuitenbrouer of The National Post discovered what Port Credit residents and visitors already know: Port Credit is the place to be.
The area boasts 64 restaurants … making it the best place to eat in Mississauga , if not all of the 905.
Unguided and uncoached, the writer objectively strolled through town, visiting the restaurants and shops, getting a feel for the people and the place. "Along with its dramatic setting and marina for 600 boats, Port Credit surprises with quirky little enclaves; it's a warm and friendly place to spend a day. And if I have fun in this port on a blustery day in February, I can only imagine the glory of July." And the glory of July will soon be upon us!
It was wonderful to read in one of Canada's national newspapers that the ambience of Port Credit is unique and inviting. Mr. Kuitenbrouer visited numerous restaurants and shops, and interviewed a variety of local residents. He seemed to come away with the feeling that Port Credit has much to offer, it's rich history, it's lakeside location and it's plethora of wonderful shops and services, reasonably priced.
"We will have to come back in the summer. The town plans 13 festivals and events between May and September, including Moonlight Madness in July, the Busker Festival in August and the Blues and Jazz Festival in September, which all sound like fun," he writes. "But maybe the true beauty of the town is that there's no highway, railway or wall of condo towers separating the street scene from the shores of lovely Lake Ontario."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves!
