Georgina offers the opportunity to enjoy every type of watersport in the warmer months, including boating, jet-skiing, kiteboarding, stand-up paddleboarding, windsurfing and kayaking. With more than ten marinas throughout Georgina and 52 kilometres of Lake Simcoe shoreline, there are ample opportunities to enjoy the water.
We also have a thriving agri-tourism community where you can purchase and experience fresh products straight from the farm. The Georgina Farmers’ Market runs from May through October and is a seasonal favourite offering local products from more than 30 vendors.
After enjoying our walking trails or cycling along scenic Lake Drive/Hedge Road, a stop for ice cream or a meal at one of our dining establishments is sure to create memorable experiences you’ll likely want to repeat all season long.
While Georgina may be known for its summer recreation, it may be even better known for its winter activities on and off the ice. Lake Simcoe, Georgina’s natural gem, does not disappoint in the winter. It is considered by many as the ice fishing capital and is a recreational playground for thrill-seekers and families alike.
