From the official City of Cornwall site
Cornwall is a city that takes pride in being able to combine small town warmth and hospitality with big-city facilities and services.
Within minutes of the City's centre are found an extensive array of shops, fine dining facilities, and entertainment centres interspersed with the many historical and artistic attractions of the area.
In addition to permanent local attractions, various festivals enliven the City for days at a time during various periods of the year.
For the golf enthusiast, twelve golf courses are located within the Cornwall area. They range from small par-3 layouts to 36 hole championship courses.
The St. Lawrence River is an integral part of the local community. It supports important commercial and recreational activities such as fishing, hunting, boating, sailing and swimming.
The hub of boating activity on the Cornwall waterfront is Marina 200. The marina is a first-class facility with a capacity for 160 boats. In addition to this marina, nine other marinas are located in the Cornwall area.
Camping and day-tripping in the Cornwall area are favourite local pastimes. Residents are fortunate to have at their immediate disposal an impressive range of parks that are open year round or seasonal. Set in scenic Lamoureux park on the St. Lawrence River, the Cornwall Civic Complex is a modern convention and entertainment centre. In addition to meeting facilities, the Complex houses a massive trade concourse as well as an arena/concert hall seating up to 4,000 people.
Cornwall is also home to the Cornwall Colts Junior A Hockey Club. The Colts play out of the Si Miller Arena.
While exploring the sites and sounds of Cornwall, visitors have access to accommodations in the more than 900 hotel and motel rooms that are available within a 10-minute drive of downtown Cornwall.
