Regions of Bruce

From sprawling farming communities to busy downtowns and charming small towns, Bruce County welcomes you.

Bruce County is made up of three distinct tourism regions: the Interior, Lakeshore and Peninsula. Each offers landscapes, history and activities that reflect the uniqueness of Bruce County.

Find yourself soaking up sunsets over farmland in the Interior, wandering beaches along the Lakeshore, or hiking limestone cliffs along the Peninsula.

Best-kept secrets are around every corner of every region, so travel slow and plan for the unexpected.

Backdropped by sprawling countryside, the Interior offers so much to explore:

  • Walk the trails of the legendary Greenock Swamp
  • Fish on Arran Lake
  • Get inspired in the artistic village of Paisley
  • Paddle 60 km of the mighty Saugeen River
  • Mountain bike the Brant Tract near Paisley
  • Mountain bike the Carrick Tract near Mildmay
  • Immerse yourself in history at the Historic Hose Tower in Paisley
  • Take a selfie with the Big Bruce in Chelsey
  • Be taken back to hockey history at the Paul Henderson mural in Lucknow

Breathe in gorgeous sunsets on sandy beaches of the Lakeshore.

Dividing Georgian Bay from Lake Huron, the Peninsula is a beautiful and pristine place, with dozens of opportunities for natural wonder.
