The Georgian Bay area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Canada. It is well known as cottage country because so many people have cottages in the area. There are a number of reasons for this but the main one is that there are so many things that you can do around Georgian Bay. No matter what you enjoy doing you will almost certainly find it on the waters of the Georgian Bay.
One of the most interesting things to do around Georgian Bay is to tour all of the lighthouses. There are thirty two lighthouses in the area some of them more than one hundred and fifty years old. Taking the tout to see the lighthouses is one of the most popular trips that people make. Even with all of the lighthouses it didn't stop ships from sinking so as part of the lighthouse tour it is also quite common to board a glass bottom boat to see all of the ship wrecks that are located near to the lighthouses.
Georgian Bay is also well known for its beaches. There are over nine miles of beaches which means that you have plenty of locations to choose from. Whether you are interested in just sitting on the beach or if you are into water sports you have lots of options. A lot of people actually like to walk along the beaches as there are a number of trails that connect them together. When you have finished spending time on the beaches there are lots of restaurants and other facilities located nearby.
The Georgian Bay area is very popular with boaters who like to cruise the waters around the area. There is lots to see as there are more than thirty thousand islands in the bay that you can go cruising through. Visiting the lighthouses by boat is also a great trip that you can make. There are dozens of marinas around Georgian Bay so you will have lots of places that you can tie up and service your boat. You can also stop and visit the many locations along the shore which offer all kinds of activities of their own to the boater.
