When looking for a new home one of the key factors one must take into consideration is location. This means not only the neighbourhood in which the home is located, but also the town or city you are looking in as well. Different locations have different amenities to offer. Whether you are looking for rural farmland, downtown core, suburbia, or waterfront properties, you will find the perfect fit in Collingwood.
Only an hour’s drive to Barrie or two hours to downtown Toronto, Collingwood offers a small town vibe without the feeling of being in isolation. A community growing in diversity, constantly expanding as more and more couples find their new homes here. Many couples, especially gay couples, are making the move for varying reasons. The Blue Mountain Resort, being merely a five-minute drive away, has a vibrant and energetic nightlife that is perfect for a night out. Prefer to relax? On the shores of Georgian Bay, and the base of Blue Mountain, Collingwood has some of the most breathtaking natural views in the Southern Georgian Bay area. Take advantage of the well-manicured nature paths and trails by going on scenic walks together.
Downtown Collingwood is home to a wide variety of “one of a kind” shops along the main street ranging from high-end apparel and unique home decor, to “hidden gem” restaurants and specialty chocolatiers sure to melt even the most frigid food critics. Collingwood boasts an array of fantastic ethnic restaurants including one of the best sushi spots in the area. Art schools, Golf Clubs, Fitness Clubs, and a colourful local Theatre are just a few of the reasons why Collingwood has such a vibrant community. With so much to offer it is no surprise that the gay community in Collingwood is growing quickly. Programs such as LGBT Youth Connection, Simcoe Pride, and the LGBT Coffeehouse, hold regular meetings and are a great way to meet other members of the community. There are several events that take place annually as well, including the annual Ontario Gay Ski Weekend hosted by Avalanche at the Blue Mountain Ski Resort. As a Collingwood local you would have the benefit of taking part in the activities without having to pay the hefty prices involved with staying at the resort.
