The Georgian Bay - Collingwood - Severn - Barrie region of Ontario is a vacationers paradise located only and hour and half or so from the Metropolis of Toronto. As a result there are numerous cottage areas along the shores of Georgian Bay and others of the many lakes in the area, as well as holiday resorts to suit the needs and wants of the millions of visitors who flock there year round.
The natural beauty, diversity and ruggedness of the terrain attracts attention as does the historical significance of the area.
Georgian Bay is covers approximately 15,000 square kilometres (5,800 sq mi), making it nearly 80% as large as Lake Ontario. The granite rock formations and windswept Eastern White Pine are characteristic of the islands and much of the shoreline of the bay. The rugged beauty of the area inspired landscapes by artists of the Group of Seven.
