BruceGreySimcoe’s communities have quaint and pretty downtown neighbourhoods, just right for strolling and browsing. You can leave the car at home and ride your bike, locking up at conveniently-placed bike racks in most downtowns. Bring your own reusable bags to tote new purchases or pick up one from a local business to add to your collection.

Tree-lined streets, small shops and cafes make the perfect backdrop for a leisurely and social shopping experience.  Experience the pleasure of in-person shopping at locally-owned and often family-run shops, boutiques and businesses. Pause for a break at a coffee shop, bakery or pub to refuel and carry on. 

The downtown cores can be hubs for summery, fun-filled community events, so check out the Festivals and Events calendar to see what's on during your visit.

And, several of our communities’ downtown cores are strolling distance to the waterfront – Tobermory, Midland, Orillia, Owen Sound, Wiarton, Sauble Beach, Southampton, Kincardine and Barrie to name just a few. Make it a road trip and hunt out the hidden gems - antique shops, artists' studios and galleries and sweet gift shops that are dotted throughout the backroads of the region.

Shopping tip: Take a quick minute to check ahead for up-to-date store hours via websites, social media pages and by phone.
