As a real estate agent who specializes in Collingwood, let me be your guide to what Collingwood Ontario has to offer as a neighbourhood to finding homes for sale in this area.
Where the beautiful shores of southern Georgian Bay meet the Niagara Escarpment, comes this picturesque, charming town, rich in history, and recognized as the hub of Ontario's four season playground. Historic buildings line this welcoming downtown offering a great variety of restaurants, shops, craft breweries, art galleries, theatres and so much more. An extensive trail system along the harbourfront connects a number of beautiful outdoor public spaces with full access to Georgian Bay.
Minutes west of Collingwood is the Town of Blue Mountains, where you'll find Ontario's best skiing, incredible hiking and biking on the world renowned Bruce Trail, dozens of orchards, farmlands, hamlets and towns with many beaches and access points to the bay.
A short drive east along the bay and Collingwood transitions into the sandy shores of Wasaga Beach; the world's longest freshwater beach. This 14 km beach, may be the main attraction, but with the Nottawasaga river, forests, and many other provincially protected green spaces, the local residents and visitors of this beach town have so much to explore.
Collingwood is a very active and growing community, which offers something for everyone. It was recently ranked as the #1 town in Ontario for small business expansion and being only 90 minutes from Toronto the possibilities endless. Collingwood is a great place to raise a family, start a business, retire or invest in a vacation home.
