Collingwood

On the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay with the Blue Mountains in the background, you'll find the four season resort town of Collingwood.

Walking along the tree lined streets downtown, among the many historical buildings, listening to the soft outdoor music, you'll discover old time charm and hospitality at the various shops and services, such as sidewalk cafes, designer clothing and unique boutiques.

There is a vast trail system around the town for hiking and biking, including The Georgian Trail, the waterfront boardwalks at Sunset Point and Harbourview Park, and the Collingwood Trail System throughout the town.

In Winter months, enjoy snowmobiling on the trail system, excellent cross country skiing at Cranberry Resort and first class downhill skiing at Ontario's largest ski resort, Intrawest/Blue Mountain Resort.

Summer brings numerous activities to our area such as fishing, swimming and boating in clean, beautiful Georgian Bay and fabulous board sailing opportunities at Sunset Point. Collingwood is very proud to be the host of many world class events such as the Collingwood Elvis Festival in July, which is sanctioned by Graceland. Enjoy the many Elvis venues and pick your “favourite” Elvis!
