Simcoe County is the place to be!

Every year an estimated 7 million visitors travel to Simcoe County for its tremendous four-season tourism experiences. The tourism sector generates approximately $840 million for our economy, boosting local business and creating labour opportunities for our work force.

 

We pride ourselves on offering seven unique experiences to our visitors: amazing golf, cultural spaces and places, agricultural and fine dining, a winter playground, trails and trekking, shoreline adventures, and spas and romantic getaways. 

 

In our 10-year Strategic Plan, approved by County Council, one of our primary Strategic Directions is to expand the role the County plays in promoting economic development and tourism. Together, with our partners, we are making great strides to promote our wonderful region and enhance our tourism industry.

 

Tourism Simcoe County supports a number of events and activities occurring throughout the region this spring and summer. Visit their website for a full list of regional events.

 

The green season is finally here, we hope you take time to enjoy our many tourism and recreational opportunities.
