Collingwood, less than 2 hours north of Toronto is located on the Southern Georgian Bay shoreline of Lake Huron. It is more than just a neighbor of Blue Mountain Ski resort, it has its own delights to discover, from historic homes to parks and trails, a marine heritage museum, and its own annual Elvis Festival.
Collingwood architecture features numerous examples of Victorian, Georgian, Greek Revival and Gothic styles in brick, stone and wood. There are so many beautiful buildings to view but the Federal Building is a "must see".
From the Millenium Overlook Park you get a bird’s eye view of the sail boats heading out of the historic Collingwood Harbour. The waterfront provides endless opportunities for boating, fishing, kayaking and canoeing, scuba diving and snorkelling.
The trail system boasts over 60 kilometres of trails spread out throughout Collingwood. Visit Harbourlands Park, Harbourview Park, Sunset Point Park, along the Pretty River dyke, and throughout other scenic parts of Collingwood.
In the wintertime head to the cross country ski hills and ski or snowbord Blue Mountain.
