Bordering the sparkling waters of Georgian Bay, Grey is an ideal spring and summer playground! Its spectacular outdoor setting, art galleries, theatres and attractions simply make Grey the perfect escape. Home to Ontario’s most scenic hiking routes on the Bruce Trail, Grey’s network of trails pass through conservation lands, communities, natural forests, and – bonus – include a Waterfalls Tour, too.
Add a bit of a challenge to your hike by exploring the caves spread throughout the area or feed your adventurous spirit by rock climbing.
Cycling is big here and Grey’s back roads are perfect
cycling routes, travelling through scenic apple orchards, rolling fields and wooded lands. The fishing is fine here, with Georgian Bay, inland lakes and local rivers home to salmon, trout and other species. Golf, canoeing, kayaking and boating are also popular.
History just comes naturally in Grey! At Craigleith Provincial Park, millions of years of history are locked into the flat shale shoreline in the invertebrate fossils imbedded in the rock. Grey Roots Museum & Archives brings history to life at Moreston, its on-site pioneer village with a working blacksmith shop. Celebrate the grand opening of the village on June 28, 2014.
Food and drink are also a popular part of Grey! Eat and drink your way along the food trails, choose fresh ingredients for supper at a farmers’ market or dine at a variety of restaurants. Two vineyards and three breweries are open for tours (be sure to check tour hours ahead of time). Enjoy one, two or more festivals and events, stay, play, shop and dine.
Take a play break and have fun in Grey!
