The Lakefront. The shops. The restaurants. The atmosphere. Port Credit has it all for both the family and the young professional types. This is why the stretch of Lakeshore that runs through the neighbourhood will be packed every weekend (with decent weather!). In my opinion, Port Credit should have been designated as the downtown core of Mississauga. It has the lakefront, the restaurants, and the entertainment that singles and families crave. Outside of Celebration Square in the City Centre, Port Credit is the life of the city.
