Fall in Love with Collingwood
October 10, 2017
The autumn days are warm and bursting with colour, and the nights are crisp and clear. Nestled in the heart of Ontario’s playground, Collingwood offers an abundance of natural beauty, outdoor recreation, fall activities, events and so much more! We are only a short scenic drive away if you live in Barrie, so escape the city and discover Collingwood this season.
The vibrant colours of the Niagara Escarpment to the west and the clear vast waters of Georgian Bay set the mood for the perfect backdrop as you arrive. There is no better place to enjoy the sights, flavours and fashion of the fall season than Downtown Collingwood.
Discover the area on Collingwood’s exciting and growing network of more than sixty kilometers of well-marked trails. The Collingwood Trails Network is a great way to get around town, see the sights and connects to every major point of interest in town. The trails are four-season, multi-use paths for walkers, joggers, cyclists, skiers and snowshoers. Crushed stone, concrete, wooden walkways and dirt-paths join street bicycle routes to help get you around town.
Downtown Collingwood might just surprise you…offering trendy clothing stores, spas, galleries, amazing restaurants and artisan coffee cafes. Sprinkle in live music venues, pubs, bars, yoga studios and you’ve got all the urban fixings, mixed with the twist of a small town with groove…all in the only downtown core recognized in Canada’s Registrar of Historic Places! As a Historic District, Downtown Collingwood is home to many heritage buildings steeped in rich history. Enjoy living history through murals and historic panels that celebrate more than 200 years of community. You can also experience arts and culture throughout the downtown at more than 25 art studios and galleries.
