The Heart of Georgian Bay
Unlike the other three pillars of economic development, the distance to population centres is actually of strong benefit to tourism because North Simcoe is one of the most accessible areas of “cottage country” to critical markets in southern Ontario and beyond. Furthermore, North Simcoe offers far more than traditional “cottage country” experiences. In addition to Georgian Bay being a “water playground” for visitors and seasonal residents alike, the region boasts a wealth of cultural assets, including some world-class historic sites. These features combine to create an exciting tourism destination that offers a host of rich experiences for tourists.
