A Weekend in Collingwood

For so long now, it’s been advised to stay home and “plan now for your adventure later” while looking at images of picturesque sunsets over Georgian Bay and the Collingwood Terminals. Well now it’s “later” and we’re here to help you plan your weekend getaway to the wonderful town of Collingwood. Living Water Resort

Friday Evening

Arrive at Living Water Resort and check in to your clean and luxurious room.

Head downstairs to Lakeside Seafood & Grill for dinner with a waterfront view as the sun goes down.


Head to downtown Collingwood for a coffee at Gibson & Co. followed by a breakfast treat at the Saturday morning farmers’ market on Pine Street.

Spend the rest of the time before lunch exploring the many shops and pop-ups that Hurontario Street and the surrounding area has to offer. Stores like Collingwood Olive Oil Company and the Body Bar by Kalola Botanicals make for exciting additions to a traditional shopping strip.

While downtown, grab takeaway cheeses and dips from Dags and Willow Fine Cheese and Gourmet Shop to have as a picnic lunch. Take the waterfront trail to Millenium Park for a picnic with a view. Collingwood Adventure Voyages

The afternoon will be spent out for adventure on Georgian Bay with Collingwood Adventure Voyages!  Choose from a selection of tours, charter fishing, sunset cruise, shipwreck snorkeling, or a lighthouse and Collingwood heritage tour (just be sure to book in advance). Collingwood Adventure Voyages departs from Collingwood Harbour which is just a short walk along the waterfront trails from your picnic lunch at Millenium Park.

Just a short walk up Hurontario Street from the Harbour, end the day with a fantastic dinner and gelato at Tesoro.


Across the street from your hotel, you will find Heavenly Cafe and Press Market for your choice of breakfast treats.

Then, spend the morning with a round of golf at Cranberry Golf Course or at the Living Shore Spa.

Finish with a late lunch at Station on the Green (Collingwood’s largest patio). Conveniently located at Cranberry Golf Course and providing a stunning view of the Escarpment.collingwood

A jam-packed morning and late lunch leaves just the right amount of time to pack up, check out, and head home and start planning your next weekend away to South Georgian Bay!
