Port Credit is Mississauga's lakeshore portion. It is quaint, there are a few historic buildings and a lighthouse on Lakeshore Blvd. I'd prefer Toronto's Harbourfront area much more than Port Credit (in terms of things to do in the area), but Port Credit is very clean and peaceful, it is perfect for a leisurely stroll.

Another thing you can do in Port Credit is to go kayaking or rowboating on the Credit River. That experience is quite fantastic.

Parking enforcement in Port Credit is unreasonable. I parked, walked a few car lengths to buy a parking receipt from a machine, and the parking enforcement officer was already at my car writing the ticket. When I called out that I was just buying the ticket, the response was "you should have said something sooner"!

If you must go, insist that someone sit behind the wheel of your car while you walk to put money in the machine. Apparently you can't be issued a ticket so long as someone is at the wheel.

Better yet, do yourself a favor - go a few miles west to Oakville. It is a much nicer area; better stores and higher quality restaurants; the parking people don't lunge out of nowhere to issue tickets unreasonably. Now I understand why Mississauga claims to not have to raise local taxes - they must make a fortune from innocent visitors trying to park.

Crowded, overpriced, almost no where to park. Cyclists are constantly running you down on the sidewalks. All the shops have pretty much the same stuff you can find in any neighbourhood but at Yorkville prices. The music on the weekends is lame beyond compare and only attracts tens of people. Parking is expensive and enforcement is brutal. Stay away from the skateboard area at the north end of Memorial park if you have children.

I took my 33ft sailboat into Snug Harbour Marina at Thanksgiving and the depth was insufficient, although no one told us this when we contacted them on the radio for docking. If you have a draft over 4'6" beware... you'll be helping to dredge the channel. Apparently it is fine during June and July, but I would be weary next time.

The food at Snug Harbour was average and the service was great.
