May Long Weekend in Gravenhurst

The May Victoria Day Long Weekend has arrived, indicating that summer is on the doorstep! Gravenhurst has tons to offer to ensure you have an exciting and unforgettable holiday weekend.

With the warmer weather finally making its way north, now is a great time to stretch those winter legs and explore the Muskoka Wharf. This half-mile boardwalk is the perfect location to take in the beautiful sights, shop at The Shipyards, go for tea and scones or enjoy dinner and relax.

The Discovery Centre located along the Wharf is a one of a kind museum that caters to all ages. Here you and the family will discover Gravenhurst’s history of steamships, wooden boats, tourism, aboriginals, and early settlers through interactive exhibits, hands on experiences and life on the water. Featured exhibits for 2019 include: On the Water, Songs to Explore, Kids Zone, Watershed Wonders and many more!

Historic downtown Gravenhurst has more shopping opportunities including clothing, collectibles and more. Don’t miss the Arts at the Albion where you can meet one of the gallery’s 20 artists.

Getting outside and enjoying nature is essential to the Gravenhurst experience. The area is home to an extensive system of hiking trails. If you’re looking for a short afternoon walk, take a stroll on the 3km Chamberlain Trail through a peaceful hardwood forest or challenge yourself with the 6km Old Stone Road Trail, a historical route showcasing evidence of the last ice-age.

The fun doesn’t stop once the sun sets, the Muskoka Drive-In is a fun place to spend an evening and it is the only drive-in theatre in Muskoka, featuring the latest box-office flicks rain or shine. Meet You At The Rock!

Enjoy your weekend in the Gateway of Muskoka!
