Hike the path less travelled; breathe in gorgeous sunsets on sandy beaches; surge through forests on two-wheels or splash in a Great Lake! Bruce County is a place where children are encouraged to look under rocks, and parents help with the heavy lifting. Two hours northwest of Toronto, yet in a world of its own, the Bruce is part wonderland, part funhouse, where nothing is ordinary, much is unbeatable, and all is very welcoming.
