A Region of Coastal Bliss and Unforgettable, Lakeside Fun

Think crystal clear waters, immaculate beaches and romantic trails past cascading waterfalls. Add to that a plethora of charming communities, and you have a pretty good picture of Southern Georgian Bay. Legend has it that the thousands of islands dotting the massive, azure bay came to be when the disgruntled god Kitchikewana threw an enormous pile of rocks and dirt into the waters. Today, you’ll find Georgian Bay the ideal arena for any kind of exhilarating outdoor activities. Rent a boat and sail the bay, explore the caves the lie inland or hike the Bruce Trail, Canada’s longest footpath, which follows the stunning Niagara Escarpment – take your pick!

Stay in any one of the beautiful towns near Southern Georgian Bay to discover the true meaning of Canadian hospitality. Enchanting port towns from Orilla to Owen Sound (often nicknamed the Scenic City) are home to art galleries and irresistible, lakeside restaurants, that’ll have you caring less and less about your diet by the minute. You’ll also have endless opportunities to learn about the region’s fascinating history and the indigenous people who first settled here at immersive museums like the Sainte-Marie among the Hurons. Don’t miss out on The Apple Pie Trail either, which will have you crisscrossing the region in search of delicious pastries and cozy cafés.

All in all, Southern Georgian Bay is sure to impress with its exciting outdoor activities and bayside beauties.
