Located on the southern shores of Georgian Bay, Collingwood is a vibrant four-season resort town. Situated at the foot of nearby Blue Mountain, Collingwood comes alive in the winter with skiers and snowboarders alike. Come summer, the focus turns to the water, and recreation activities abound on Georgian Bay.
Hike or bike the Georgian Trail from Collingwood all the way to Meaford. Wander the quaint downtown, and revel in the wonderful shops along the way and at the end of a perfect day, enjoy a top- notch culinary experience at one of the area’s fine restaurants. Collingwood is Canada’s first designated heritage community.
Collingwood offers miles of all-season walking and hiking paths, waterfront parks, versatile mountain-bike trails, a deep water harbour, an amazing yacht club and public marina, world class wind-surfing, sailing and boating, golf, 250 plus shops and boutiques and an endless variety of restaurants for the hungry. Collingwood has a vibrant downtown filled with historical B&Bs, welcoming accommodations, pampering spas, nationally–acclaimed theatres, a farmer’s market and year-round festivals and exciting events. If you’re an Elvis fan, be sure to catch the annual Elvis Festival in July. Festivities include a street party, Elvis competition, classic car parade and of course lots and lots of music!
