The City of Owen Sound is a smooth blend of urban and natural attractions. Clear blue water, relaxing beaches and a bright sky are set against lush green valleys and rugged limestone cliffs. Hidden delights—sparkling streams and waterfalls, secret gardens of exotic ferns and rare orchids along inviting trails—are all close to the urban conveniences and amenities of a thriving Ontario city.
Owen Sound is "The Hub" of the Grey-Bruce region, the cultural centre of a beautiful nature-based travel destination. A proud part of Grey County, Owen Sound and its surrounding communities of Chatsworth, Georgian Bluffs and Meaford are worth exploring. It is an easy day-trip from the Golden Horseshoe, the Hwy 401 corridor and the United States.
Swim, boat, fish, and sightsee in a clean and fresh environment. Visit museums, galleries and artists'studios. Take in a live theatre production. Shop in unique and charming boutiques, specialty shops and malls. Dine in or out at one of the many restaurants spread throughout the city. For overnight and longer stays, Owen Sound has a variety of accommodation. Relax at one of the city's quality hotels and motels, quaint B & Bs, cottages, fully serviced campgrounds or unwind in the solitude of the Bruce Trail.
The Owen Harbour trail links the east and west sides of the harbour. The trail passes through a series of parks and ends at Kelso Beach.
