Southern Georgian Bay Trip Planner
Welcome to Southern Georgian Bay!Located just 90 minutes north of Toronto, the Southern Georgian Bay region is well known for its inspirational scenery and numerous outdoor activities. Consisting of thick woods, rolling hills, idyllic beaches and lively communities, the area stretches from Nottawasaga Bay, a thumbnail in the Georgian Bay, southeast to Lake Simcoe. The region's clear waters provide excellent freshwater fishing and boating experiences, while popular Wasaga Beach's sands are well worth a visit. On land, play the area's golf courses or explore a number of scenic nature walks. A year-round destination, Southern Georgian Bay offers downhill skiing at Ontario's biggest slope, Blue Mountain, located near Collingwood. A diverse heritage means culture lovers and history buffs have much to enjoy at the many aboriginal museums, martyr shrines, missions and reconstructed settlements and forts populating the area. More recent culture can also be found at South Georgian Bay's theatres, art galleries and seasonal festivals, especially in the large cities of Barrie and Orillia.
