Food scene
We love the farmer's market for a breakfast sandwich Saturday mornings, the best cinnamon buns you've ever had, butter tarts, fresh bread, produce and meats. You can even get a pair of hand knitted socks (one day I hope to enjoy that kind of luxury). There's often a couple musicians playing and with the location alongside the river lends a wonderful joie de vivre. Free parking and less than a block from the lovely main street, art galleries, library and shops.

We love Sullivan's in Wiarton for anytime we want really good meat to grill. One of my favs is their Elk sausage. Huge variety, knowledgeable staff and just one of many good reasons to hang out in Wiarton.

Another great reason to head to Wiarton! Especially if you're like me and would rather pay someone else to catch your fish. Different varieties of smoked fish are incredible.

Hiking
One of our favourite spots is Lion's Head. You can easily spend a morning, afternoon or even a day in Lion's Head. There's a lot of up and down in the part of the hike that approaches the cliffs but we have done it a couple times with our daughter when she was around 4 and 5 years old and it was doable for her with some help at times. The views are incredible and at 1 or 2km, not long enough to make kids grumpy. Back in town on the waterfront there's a great little beach and places to have some food or go for ice cream.

A lovely hike, easy for most people and the big payoff is a beautiful view and space to picnic on the edge of the escarpment. 10 minute drive from our place!

Sightseeing
Everyone knows Sauble Beach which is a fave but Sauble Falls is another family friendly spot that is safe to swim and lots of fun for kids and adults to jump off the ledges. Just a few yards before the falls you can rent a canoe or other watercraft and casually paddle up the picturesque river while spotting turtles.

A flat hike suitable for any fitness level that ends at an incredible rocky beach which is also great fo a stroll, picnic or swim.

Singing Sands, like Sauble Beach is on the west side of Bruce Peninsula but further north. Like Sauble it has a great sandy beach and very shallow water that allows even kids to walk out hundreds of feet out into to the lake. it is also much smaller than Sauble, nowhere near as busy and close to other northerly attractions like Hallway Log Dump and Tobermory.

Amazing to think this incredible landscape with all its variety can be found within Owen Sound. Inglis Falls, the trails, streams, gardens, wildlife, etc. Far to much to describe here, see the website: https://www.owensoundtourism.ca/en/explore/harrison-park.aspx

Boating and fishing
Big Bay is 10k up the road north of us. It's a nice spot for getting an ice cream at the general store, going to visit the wonderous Keppel Croft Gardens or hanging out at the beach. But the main event here is is the big government dock and boat ramp. Launch your trailered boat here or just enjoying sunning, diving or fishing off the dock.
