Savour summer and all it offers with a home in South Georgian Bay

November 1, 2013|  Article By : 

While South Georgian Bay is most famous for being a premier destination for skiers at Blue Mountain, it also offers a wide variety of summer activities for the whole family to enjoy.  I know summer seems to be in our rearview mirror, but it's a good time to start planning for six months down the road.

Blue Mountain and Georgian Bay provide a breathtaking backdrop for a summer full of excitement. If you're a golfer, there are many excellent championship public and private golf courses to choose from that will test your skills. You can tee off with friends and family at courses such as Monterra Golf Course, Duntroon Highlands Golf Course, Blue Mountain Golf and Country Club and Osler Brook Golf and Country Club.

Georgian Bay also offers some of the cleanest and clearest water in Ontario. With private and public harbours available you can store your boat and head out for a day of fishing, sailing or swimming and some of the best windsurfing and kite surfing around. Nearby you can enjoy building a sand castle or basking in the sunshine at Wasaga Beach.

The mountain in the summertime offers great opportunities for hiking or taking the gondola up for fantastic views of South Georgian Bay. You can also explore scenic caves and discover how they were used for survival long ago. If you're an adventurer, check out Scenic Caves Nature Adventures for eco adventure tours, a suspension bridge and zip lining.

If jogging, biking or long walks are more your thing you'll love the 32km Georgian Trail from South Georgian Bay to Meaford that travels along where the old railway tracks used to be.

At the end of the day stroll over to Blue Mountain Village and check out the live entertainment that's always on the go. Bring a blanket with you and cuddle up under the stars to enjoy an outdoor movie.

 One thing is for certain when you live in South Georgian Bay you'll never get bored with the endless possibilities practically at your doorstep. Be prepared to have plenty of visitors wanting to stay with you.
