Collingwood is a very unique town, it sits on Georgian Bay, about 1-3/4hrs from Toronto. It’s origins are in shipping being a major train station & shipping port in the 1800s. Since then Collingwood and the surrounding towns of The Blue Mountains, Thornbury and Wasaga Beach have become a world wide known tourist area, an outdoor enthusiast’s ideal home, retirement living goal and entrepreneur mecca.
A small town with many different types of people but all with one similar desire, be in a outdoorcenteric town…
It isn’t unusual for kids to be picked up from school by parents in their ski clothes to head to lessons or a family night of skiing or snow boarding.
People talk about last night’s sunset, while they were out on their SUP. Friends have bike night, ski night, etc, with drinks at a local pub to follow. With trails for walking, hiking, running, biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, etc in every direction there is something for every one.
The other attractive quality of Collingwood and area is the urban influence, with so many weekenders from Toronto the restaurants are great, the specialty shops abound (cheese shops, olive oil, organic smoothies and more) and boutiques & stores provide high end products & services. You will not be left wanting.
