GRAND BEND
Fun on Lake Huron!

During most of the year the town of Grand Bend has a population of around 2,000 people, however during the summer months the town becomes a magnet for holiday makers and attracts 50,000 or so visitors.

The beach here is part of hundreds of miles of sandy beaches along what is known as, the "West Coast of Ontario" and families, couples and teens flock here for sun and fun!

There are many Hotels & Motels, Bed & Breakfast accommodations, Restaurants and Diners, all ready and willing to cater to the tourists.

Grand Bend Sunset

According to National Geographic, the town and surrounding area have some of the finest sunsets in the world.

The beaches here can become crowded in the summer time, especially on weekends.

People from the cities of London, Windsor, Chatham, Detroit and Toronto flock here to week-end cabins and cottages at the Lake, or to camp nearby.

The water here is clean and the sandy beach stretches out into the shallow water, children can safely wade and swim in the water - under their parent's watchful eyes of course!

There are several Golf Clubs in the area, such as Bayview Golf Club, the Oakwood Inn Golf Club and Sawmill Creek Golf and Resort.

For theatre lovers, the Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend is a great place to see live theatre.

The Speedway is another fun outing for families or teens, as they all seem to love the Speedway, and this one has events throughout the summer. See the link to their website below.
