Summer Wrap Up

Well it has been a great summer on the Bruce! The weather has been fabulous for spending time out and about checking out all the Bruce has to offer. I hope you and your family and friends got a chance to spent time exploring this wonderful place!?!

Even though Labour Day weekend has come and gone and the kids are back in school, there is still lots of time to take in the Bruce, this is a wonderful time of year to get out and see what we have to offer. From lighthouses, hiking the Bruce Tail, cycling at our mountain bike parks, experiencing Georgian Bay, shipwrecks, shoreline, and the Niagara Escarpment all on a glass bottom boat. You can visit the Bruce County Musuem & Cultural Centre, don't forget to watch the movie, it is awesome! The Parks Canada Visitor Centre is a great place to be this time of year, located in the Bruce Peninsula National Park you can check out all the animals that live in the park and throughout the Bruce, and they have all kinds of cool exhibits, take in their movie, climb the stairs at the lookout tower to check out the spectacular views and colour, this would be a must for fall adventure on my list!

You can take in fall festivals, our road side markets are overflowing with local harvest, and our backroads will be an abundance of mother nature's splended pallette of reds, oranges, golds, greens, and more. This is also a great time to paddle our rivers, the Saugeen, Sauble, Rankin, or some of our inland lakes, the colour will be amazing and it is a great way to spend quiet time on the Bruce.

Hope to see you on the Bruce this Autumn!
