Clarington Tourism Businesses and Attractions Directory

Business and Attractions Directory banner image

Clarington has many small businesses and attractions that make our community a great place to live for residents and an attractive destination for visitors and tourists to explore. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the local tourism landscape, forcing some attractions and businesses to close temporarily or alter their operations and provide their services in new ways.

This directory is an up-to-date resource outlining which businesses are temporarily closed, and which are open with safety precautions. Clarington Tourism will continue to add information as it becomes available, and this directory will be updated weekly.

Please note that non-medical masks or face coverings are mandatory for all community members and visitors in commercial establishments in the Region of Durham.   

If you are a business owner in Clarington and want to be part of this directory, or see an error with your listing, please fill out our Tourism Businesses and Attractions Directory form
