Our trip to Ontario’s year-round playground was a scenic 2 hour drive with a lush green front visage and surrounding cerulean water side views. 

Collingwood is Canada’s first designated heritage community. Nestled between Georgian Bay and Blue Mountain, a trip to this charming town feels more international than local, though the ubiquitous presence of artfully-arranged inuksuks ensures a true aboriginal Canadian experience. This is a popular town for the Vietnamese community due its proximity to the well-known Blue Mountains resort.

The calming waterfront, plethora of clear water beaches, and the many dining and activity options make sure boredom is forever detained. Collingwood is as courtly for a couple as it is fun for a family of four.

The highlight of our trip was a stopover at the charming local winery, Georgian Hills Vineyards, where we enjoyed a golden afternoon of wine tasting experience that included home-made chili jam, freshly-picked local berries, and pear infused chardonnay that can convert an anti-alcoholic into an addict.

Embrace your Collingwood calling and drink up the sun!
