Well, winter, it’s been fun, but we’re moving on to something new…spring! Although there is always so much to do in Collingwood, The Blue Mountains, Wasaga Beach, Meaford and surrounding locales all winter long, it’s always exciting to explore all the fabulous things to do around here beyond the skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling that draws so many people to the area during the winter months. Here is a list of activities you can immerse yourself in this spring while we wait for the snow to melt and dream of those sunny days at the beach or cottage. If you don’t already live in this spectacular region, you’ll soon want to!
• Wine tasting and brewery tours
Why not explore a local vineyard to take in the sights, scenery, food and of course the amazing locally-crafted wine? Be sure to visit the Georgian Hills Vineyards, Coffin Ridge or the fabulous Roost Winery & Vineyard. This region also boasts several craft breweries; you can take a weekend tour and sample some fabulous suds with your buds! Here’s a list of must-see local brew houses.
• Scandinave Spa
No guide to this area would be complete without mentioning the Blue Mountain Scandinave Spa! It’s popular among tourists and locals alike – how can you resist the pure relaxation of crisp, clean outdoor baths and pools while taking in the beautiful scenery? Visit the Scandinave website to learn more about this unique spa getaway to enjoy with friends, family or as a solo retreat to cherish.
• Live music & great food
There is no shortage of amazing places to eat around here! From organic or vegan fare to cafés, pub grub, family dining or a swanky steakhouse, there are choices galore to suit everyone. You can always find amazing talent and live musicians at many venues in the region – what a great way to spend a rainy spring Saturday night.
• Hiking & running trails
Whether you walk, wheel, or run, the Georgian Trail offers 35 scenic kilometres of trail along the south shore of Georgian Bay. You can do a 30-minute walk…or walk 30 kilometres – whatever suits your mood. Just pack a lunch, some water, and your camera for those pics you just have to post on your social media!
