Four Reasons Why Living in The Georgian Triangle is Absolutely Amazing

Have you heard of the Georgian Triangle? It’s the name given to the areas located in south-central Ontario that surround Georgian Bay and includes Wasaga Beach, Clearview Township, Collingwood, The Blue Mountains, and portions of the Municipality of Meaford and the Grey Highlands.

For those considering a move to this area, you may initially be wondering whether relocating here is the right step for you and your family to take. As local residents and Realtors® in the area, we can definitely say that calling the Georgian Triangle home is a great idea, as the area has so many opportunities, attractions and benefits to offer. Here’s our list of the 4 reasons why living in the Georgian Triangle is absolutely amazing:


Whether it’s a sweltering summer’s day or a chilly winter evening, there’s a massive amount of recreation opportunities available in the Georgian Triangle. For those that love to shred the slopes, Blue Mountain is a top draw, as well as the other nearby ski hills. However, you may not know that Blue Mountain also offers recreation opportunities during other seasons, including a bike trail, ziplining and more.

In the summer, we all know that Wasaga Beach is the place to be, and if you live in the Georgian Triangle, it’s right in our backyard. However, summer isn’t the only time to enjoy the beach. Fall and spring are also a great time to take advantage of a quieter Wasaga, and enjoy the shopping, restaurants, or taking a nice stroll along the beach.

The towns and villages in this area are host to many great restaurants, festivals, concerts, sports and other events, so you will never be at a loss for things to do.

Great Home Values

With rising home prices across the province pricing some buyers (particularly first-time home buyers), out of the market, the Georgian Triangle is gaining popularity as a place to call home. In comparison to the average price of a home in Barrie, which is currently approximately $504, 000, the average home price in Wasaga Beach, just a little over half an hour away, is a more affordable $442, 000, making it an attractive option for many families.

Exciting Growth

In addition to more affordable housing prices in certain areas, many areas in the Georgian Triangle are also experiencing exciting growth – another reason to make this region your home. In Collingwood for example, proposed future condo developments are on the horizon. Wasaga Beach also has exciting plans for development that are going to be spectacular for residents and visitors alike. A proposed revamping of the downtown, for example, should prove to be a boon to tourism, the local economy and the community of Wasaga Beach itself.

Natural Beauty

Last, but certainly not least, the Georgian Triangle’s natural beauty is also a major perk of living in this area. From the largest freshwater beach in the world to interesting scenic caves and beautiful vistas of farmland, or snowy hills in winter, the Georgian Triangle is home to so much natural beauty. It’s a nature lover’s dream!
