2021 Community Tourism Plan
The 2021 Community Tourism Plan starts at the foundation and works its way up. The focus begins with assisting tourism-related businesses and stakeholders achieve success for themselves through education and leadership. It then layers in support for businesses to work together to build and deliver new products and experiences.
The development of the Plan began in early 2020 before the COVID-19 Pandemic began and had to be put on hold while King Economic Development pivoted to support our businesses through new and innovative ways.
Despite the incredible challenges of the Pandemic, a silver lining has emerged through many of these new tourism opportunities and partnerships that were developed, truly showing the resiliency of our tourism stakeholders. King’s Economic Development team looks to support and foster the tourism sector and these new opportunities through the implementation of the Goals and Action Items of the 2021 King Township Community Tourism Plan.
In addition to accommodations & restaurants, King has many businesses which are popular destinations for tourists and residents alike. Some businesses operating in the agricultural sector supplement their business by providing agri-tourism experiences.
Because of its rolling hills and the Oak Ridges Moraine, King is a popular destination for cyclists and hikers, many who stop in to enjoy dining.
