Southampton, which is one of the prettiest little Canadian towns in southern Ontario, sits on the shores of Lake Huron and is a wonderful place to visit anytime of the year.
Its home to one of the largest and most beautiful beaches in the province, but there’s always enough room for everybody.
The town of just over 3,000 people offers several excellent campsites and has numerous bed and breakfasts, inns, lodges, cottages, and motels to stay in.
There are quite a few family-run restaurants on the main street as well as general stores and a variety of arts and crafts shops, antique stores, and clothing outlets.
Fishing is another popular activity there as the Saugeen River flows through town and Native Canadian Indian reserves and sites are easy to find within a few miles from town. You can also find tennis courts, golf courses, canoeing, and biking in town, but many people just come to spend the day and watch some of the most breathtaking sunsets in the world.
From the beach you can see Chantry Island and its lighthouse and if you want to learn more about the area’s history and culture, then take a visit to the local museum and art school. The region also hosts the award-winning Pumpkinfest each fall.
Southampton and the local area is a fantastic way for people of all ages to re-energize their bodies and souls.
