Located on the shores of Nottawasaga Bay, this idyllic town captures the imaginations of visitors with a charming historic downtown and neighbourhoods of century homes. Locals enjoy extensive trail network, sandy beaches, and a number of annual festivals.
The Collingwood Heritage Conservation District encompasses a significant area within the city limits including the wonderful downtown shopping district with its many notable buildings, now occupied by trendy and hip eateries and entertainment venues. Nearby, Creative Simcoe Street is home to several artist’s studios, art galleries and restaurants. It also features the Collingwood Museum and Collingwood Public Library and the Simcoe Street Theatre.
The town is a major recreation area for Southern Ontario, welcoming about one million visitors each year to the sand and slopes. A short distance from Wasaga Beach and the longest freshwater sand beach in the world, lake breezes keep things cool during the hot summer months. Fall temperatures are usually pleasant and mild with some of the warmest days in Canada. Winter is when things really begin to happen with the influx of seasonal tourism. Heavy, lake-effect snowfalls that blanket the ski hills provide winter wonderland vistas and encourage the local version of hygge.
