"COLLINGWOOD****A GEORGIAN BAY GEM" Top 5 Page for this destination Collingwood by LoriPori

Collingwood Travel Guide: 46 reviews and 102 photos


On May 16 & 17, 2004, Hans and I made the trip to Stayner, Ontario to visit our dear friends, Nathalie and Jacob. We had a wonderful time together. Besides Stayner, we went to Creemore and Collingwood.
COLLINGWOOD is one of Ontario's best-known four season resort communities and is located on the southern shores of beautiful Georgian Bay.


Nathalie and Jacob took us to Millenium Overlook Park, which has a stunning view of Georgian Bay. It was a sunny, bright , but a little cool day.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A place that has something for everyone.

      Collingwood is certainly one of Ontario's gems. People come from all over to visit this area.

    A pleasant all seasons resort! Martyrs' Shrine and Wasaga Beach look worthy to visit. Thanks Lori for the virtual tour!

    I love small towns along the shores of the Great Lakes, and Collingwood looks like a nice place to visit.

    Another interesting page of ours, Lori. I remember some pictures of the Martyrs' Shrine I've seen a couple of years ago. I'd love to visit it.
