    Grand Bend Visitors Guide

    For a fun-filled family getaway, consider the little town of Grand Bend for your next vacation. This quaint town along the shores of Lake Huron boasts activities like swimming, water skiing, and boating, as well as a plethora of shops, boutiques, and restaurants.


    Why Choose Grand Bend?

    Over 30 miles of wide, sandy shoreline in Grand Bend beach areas beckons travelers from across the United States and Canada each year. From the bustle of Main Beach to the more laid back atmosphere of South Beach, Grand Bend has something for everyone from sunbathing to skiing and swimming. Set out on the winding trails of Pinery Provincial Park through towering oaks, prairie lands, and sunny meadows on foot or on bike. Test your angling skills and (hopefully) hook the big one when the Salmon come in or spend a lazy afternoon canoeing along these warm, clear waterways.

    Besides the outdoor attractions, Grand Bend boasts a variety of other activities. Tee off for a round of golf at Indian Hills or the Oakwood Resort. If you're really adventurous, sky dive with Grand Bend Sport Parachuting or spend the day water skiing or tubing on the lake. Visit Grand Bend Motorplex and International Speedway where exciting quarter-mile, sprint, or oval races take place each weekend throughout the summer.


    Choose Cottages Instead

    Instead of a hotel, choose Grand Bend cottages for your accommodation needs. These private residences range from luxury beach homes to quaint cottages with separate sleeping areas and bathrooms and functional kitchens. Most cottages are within minutes of the lake, beaches, and other popular attractions with several being right on the shore. When you choose a cottage, you get an entire home for the price, not just a sleeping room with a bathroom. Now all you have to do is book your trip!
