The Muskoka and Almaguin Highlands areas are located two hours north of Toronto in beautiful “cottage country” and are anchored on the rugged Canadian Shield. The area consists of vibrant waterfront communities and a primary commercial centre for all of Muskoka and adjoining regions, boasting great shopping, restaurants, pubs, world class golf and live entertainment.

The area is the ideal place for a romantic weekend for two, a family camping or resort experience, or a girlfriend's getaway. The area is also the major gateway into world-renowned Algonquin Park.  Whether you are seeking a vacation destination or a retirement location with a first rate hospitals, libraries, and museums in addition to a vibrant arts and culture scene, you will find it all here.

The area has become known as a superior location for numerous prestigious events.  It has been said that we are the triathlon capital of Canada!  The Muskoka Triathlon, Ironman 70.3 Triathlon, Ontario Paralympic Winter Championships, and the Canadian National Pond Hockey Championship organizers have all touted the region for its great natural beauty and incredible volunteer spirit. The area also hosted the 2010 Ontario Winter Games and the 2010 G8 Summit of world leaders.

Summertime offers up an abundance of fun-filled recreational opportunities along with the simple pleasures afforded by a canoe trip into Algonquin Park's awe-inspiring back country or an invigorating day hike in nearby Arrowhead Park.  In the Town Centres, tour the colourful murals inspired by the works of Canada's Group of Seven and Tom Thomson and stroll the boutique shops and the heritage buildings of the area.  Plenty of snow makes this a winter wonderland that's perfect for downhill, cross-country, snowboarding and snowmobile enthusiasts.
