Settled in the late 1700s, the quaint town of Selkirk, located on the shoreline of Lake Erie, is an ideal destination for those seeking a family-friendly getaway. For outdoor enthusiasts, Selkirk Provincial Park is a sensational spot to pitch a tent, enjoy a picnic, stroll along Wheelers Walk Trail (a long wooden boardwalk over a marsh) or cast out a line for some renowned sport fishing.

The majority of Selkirk businesses belong to the service sector and cater to the influx of tourists in warmer months. Key business types include restaurants, cottages or bed and breakfasts and support services. Clientele for these businesses includes new residents seeking a cottage lifestyle, staycationers and cyclists along bike routes. Many of these businesses have amenities to support their clientele including bike racks, on-the-go food options and tourism promotional material.
