Penetanguishene Travel Guide

The historic town on the south eastern shore of Georgian Bay traces its roots back to the early eighteenth century. It developed in importance over the next 150 years as a naval base, established to protect northwesterly trade routes. It has a long bilingual history, with many French-speaking settlers, mainly from areas east of Montreal, mixing with the British roots. Today, the town has a population of about 10,000 people, and calls itself the ‘Gateway to Georgian Bay’. It is a great departure point to explore the area, especially with a ‘30,0000 island boat tour’. Visitors can enjoy the lakeside boardwalk, waterfront dining, historic architecture, theatre, and visit several replica schooners. The town is not far from famous Algonquin Provincial Park.
