From: May To: October
The pretty town of Meaford hugs the south shore of Georgian Bay where the blue waters stretch to the horizon, affording grand sunsets as well as prime fishing and boating. The harbour, with its tidy walkways, is a snug haven for pleasure craft, while the downtown shows off fine Victorian architecture. The Westfort retired coast guard vessel is displayed beside the harbour along with other marine heritage artifacts. The Georgian Trail links Meaford with Thornbury and Collingwood along its scenic, packed cycling path. The Bighead River estuary is a good spot for Rainbow trout angling in the fall.
Meaford Harbour has dockage, launch ramps and plenty of parking and camping for boaters and RV's. The office offers washrooms, showers and a lounge with a nice view of the harbour. Regular summer events at the waterfront include Tuesday Antique Car Shows, Friday Farmers' Market at 3-7 pm and Sunday Concerts in the Harbour Pavilion.
