the details...

Location of Collingwood

Collingwood’s borders run from Poplar Sideroad to the water’s edge, nestled between Wasaga Beach and Blue Mountain Resort.  The Historic Downtown runs North/South from Highway 26 to about Hume Street and is a lovely stroll from end to end.  Larger big box stores, like Walmart, are easily accessible just off the main highway running through town.  The Collingwood Harbour is also easily walkable from the downtown core.

Why You'll LOVE it:

Why You'll HATE it:

Downtown Shopping

Fantastic shops, cafes, restaurants and theatres – Collingwood boasts a vibrant downtown.

Limited night life

While Collingwood is definitely the place to go for night life locally, if 24 hour restaurants and nightlife are on your must-have list, you might be disappointed.  

Farmer's Market

Collingwood’s Farmer’s Market is a vibrant collection of local growers and makers and an amazing way to spend a Summer morning!

It's a Tourist Hub

Tourists love Collingwood for the same reason residents do and you may find events and hotspots get crowded on weekends and holidays.  

Waterfront

Collingwood’s Waterfront is easily accessible and offers many activities such as Boat Tours, Stand Up Paddling, Kayaking etc.

Housing Prices

Collingwood’s desirability translates to the housing market where the average sale price is just under one million dollars.  

Business growth

Collingwood is one of the top places in Ontario to open and operate a small business. CFIB (Canadian Federation of Independant Business) ranks Collingwood the top community for entrepreneurs in Ontario, and #6 in Canada!

Lack of Transportation

Collingwood has the best transportation system compared to its surrounding local towns, but if you’re expecting the TTC, you will be disappointed.

Close(ish) to Toronto

2 hours from Toronto for easy access to city amenities or international flights.  It’s an do-able drive for a day of city business or evening entertainment.  

No Major Highway to Toronto

There are no major highways directly to Toronto – you are either taking Airport Road or the 400 from Barrie to get into the city.

Places of Interest

Tucked away in a skinny alley off of the main street, this cafe and bar offers an atmosphere that is somehow both cozy and sophisticated.

Do not leave me unattended in here.  Minimalist modern fashion perfectly curated by the shop owner Cathy Brown, this women’s clothing store is a dream to browse and a joy to shop at.

One of many excellent Independently owned and operated Breweries in the area, Black Bellows books musicians, plans trivia and hosts homebrew competitions.  Super fun!

An organic plant-based restaurant, cafe, smoothie bar, and market – its that perfect mix of fast and convenient but oh-so-healthy.  I recommend the Kimchee Bowl.

 Interior design with a home decor store front located at the corner of Hurontario and Hume, The Nest really reflects that relaxed, vacation vibe this region does so well.
