While Lake Simcoe is known for being the go-to spot for fishing in Southern Ontario, there are plenty of other activities available to anyone who is not into fishing, but wants to enjoy this beautiful lake and the many opportunities for fun that it provides.
Throughout the seasons there are several different activities for individuals, couples and families alike. No matter when you come to Lake Simcoe, you will find something to do and something to see in this tourism hotspot.
During the fall, a nice road trip through Lake Simcoe is usually one of the best things you can do. Driving around this large lake will open your eyes to the fall colours that liven up the trees during this time of year. All the colours of fall can be seen on a trip around the lake. Couple it with a beautiful sunset and you also get a romantic getaway for you and that special someone. There is no reason to go to Niagara Falls when you have a quiet and romantic place like Lake Simcoe to visit. During your drive around Lake Simcoe, you can also check out the many fall fairs and farmer’s markets that kick into high gear during the fall season.
Winter may seem like the month when nothing happens, but that is not the case at Lake Simcoe. Located right in the snow-belt region of Ontario, between the Great Lakes, Lake Simcoe gets a lot of snow and that opens up a lot of opportunities for winter fun in this winter wonderland. Activities around Lake Simcoe include ice fishing, as was mentioned, as well as snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, snow tubing and ice skating. Several winter carnivals are also held around Lake Simcoe throughout the winter, making Lake Simcoe the perfect place to go to if you want to get away from the dreary winter in the city and find a place where winter may just be the best season.
Summer, naturally, is a great season to be at any lake but Lake Simcoe is a step above. With beautiful beaches, Lake Simcoe can be a great place to relax for while in the hot sun. However, if you want to spend some time in the water but you do not feel like fishing, then there are plenty of things to do on the waves including riding a Seadoo, wind surfing, kite surfing and enjoying some quiet time on the lake in your own personal boat.
