Collingwood dates back to the 19th
century as a vacation spot
but I remember it in the 60s when we went there to ski Blue Mountain
To me it is the
best Ontario has to offer for skiing so that is where we went. There
are other ski clubs along the hill but most are private Craiglieth,
Oslers Bluff and Devil's Glen to name a few.
has a harbour so was important for shipping and has a very viable town
without the ski hill. Having said that the ski hill was a big draw for
people in the winter and with Georgian Bay it has now become a year
round play area!
Boating swimming cycling hiking golf and so on!! Golf
has taken off in Collingwood and has a list of 100 top courses so I
would think there are more just not the top. Batteaux Creek, Blue
Mountain, Monterra, Meaford, Osler Brook the list goes on.
an Elvis Festival, all things Canadian in the fall around Thanksgiving.
There is theater There are very good Restaurants ,Spas The Scenic Caves
and the ski hill has a slide in the summer months.
Collingwood has received a heritage designation from the Federal
Government. There are amazing murals and of course a Museum.
something for everyone and a large tourist development so no problem
getting a place to stay. Intrawest has built restaurants, condos and
hotels at the bottom of Blue
Mountain and there are other venues as well like Cranberry Golf Resort.
Collingwood is definitely
worth a visit and has even become a booming retirement community among
