​Simcoe County is considered by many to be Ontario's four-season outdoor playground. Visitors enjoy breathtaking views, a vibrant arts and cultural community, walking trails, parks, marinas, shopping and dining, and a variety of entertainment ranging from world class shows​, snowmobiling, skydiving, and horseracing to lounging on the beach, boating and skiing. There are a number of reasons this region has been identified as a premier destination in Canada, including:

  • Our extensive waterfront access, including Lake Simcoe, the largest lake in Ontario after the Great Lakes; Georgian Bay, famous for its crystal clear water on Lake Huron; and Wasaga Beach, the longest freshwater beach in the world
  • A variety of outdoor facilities offering an assortment of activities, more than 50 golf courses, 60 marinas, three ski resorts, more than 30,000 acres of​ Simcoe County Forest, seven provincial parks, one national park and hundreds of kilometres of cross-county skiing, snowmobiling, hiking and mountain biking trails
  • A growing agri-culinary sector, including the development of several signature foodie trails, craft breweries and distilleries
