Look Up Tour
If history and architecture is your thing, The Look Up tour is perfect for you. Explore the features and forms that define the wide range of architectural styles of the buildings in historic downtown Collingwood. Until the start of the 20th century, the architecture of Ontario towns were influenced by styles developed largely in France, Britain and the United States. Few structures are pure examples of a particular style; rather, they are interpretations of those styles depending on local resources, materials and craftspeople. Often, clues to a particular style can be found by literally Looking Up. Rooflines, window styles, turrets and embellishments are often telling features of a particular style. This self-guided walking tour takes about one hour to complete. Click the link to view the map and download the brochure.
This handy brochure comes complete with an explanation of common architectural styles and a glossary of terms to help you.
Good Food Stroll
Let your taste buds be your guide on the Good Food Stroll. Collingwood is home to an incredible array of culinary talent and offers a fantastic selection of unique restaurants, bars, craft breweries, coffee houses and specialty food shops that you just won’t find anywhere else. Collingwood is a culinary community that supports local farmers and regional fare and there is something for everyone including Non-GMO, organic, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan alternatives. One of the most popular things to do on a Saturday morning is to visit the Downtown Collingwood Farmers’ Market. It’s a great opportunity to get your shopping done, support local and mingle with a wide variety of producers who are passionate about what they grow, make or create. With a broad and diverse range of culinary experiences to choose from, you’ll be sure to find something that satisfies your palate just a short walk or bike ride from the many trails that weave through town.
