Southwestern Ontario

Sandy beaches, bustling lakeside towns, and plenty of activities make this area attractive for anyone from families to birdwatchers to bikers.  This is as much cottage country as Muskoka and Haliburton, so if that’s all you’ve ever heard of, maybe it’s time to change it up a bit!


The self-proclaimed “prettiest town in Canada”, Goderich is the Huron County capital. Featuring markets, museums, a marina and shopping areas, it is a very popular spot for cottagers.

Grand Bend

Home to a fabulous sand beach, “The Bend” is popular with sunworshippers sho flock there every summer. For those who like the action hot, this is the place to be.

Port Dover

If you ever happen to be near the town of Port Dover on any given Friday the 13th, don’t be surprised if you see a bike or two…or a hundred. For years, motorcycle enthusiasts have chosen this calendar anomaly to head to the Port and share their passion for riding and fellowship. Of course, the rest of the time, people are attracted to the sunny beaches and entertainment areas of this popular summer resort town.

Port Stanley

There’s a lot to like about Port Stanley.  Attractions include a large sandy beach,  the Port Stanley Festival Theatre,  the Port Stanley Terminal Rail, which operates a tourist train between St. Thomas, Ontario and Port Stanley.  There’s also marinas, restaurants and plenty of unique shops to keep you busy.

Stratford Shakespearean Festival

Within 90 minutes of most cottage destinations in SW Ontario, the world-reknown festival city offers outstanding talent, courtesy of the Bard and other playwrights.

Lovers of thespian pursuits will also be keen on the Blyth Festival and the Shaw Festival
