Port Stanley was a boom town during the first and second world wars. The town's rich music history includes one of the largest hay bail dance floors in Canada hosting the likes of Duke Eligton, and other Big Band and Jazz heros. It is said that the near by military base drew thousands of young ladies via train to from London to dance and mingle with the soldiers. The dance hall did not survie the winter but the famous Mackie's beach burger joint did and still holds much of it's original charm.

The town hosts many historical homes, and has two central areas and various small neighbourhoods and two blue flag beaches all within walking distance.
