Family & Lifestyle

Grand Bend is the greatest beach town in Ontario but it is so much more than that.  Back in the early to mid-1800’s Grand Bend was an isolated lumber and fishing community.  That all changed at the turn of the 20th century and it wasn’t long before The Bend began to flourish.  Today you will find almost everything you need within walking distance.

Main Street is alive and full of energy from the Spring to late fall providing boutique shopping, vibrant eateries and recreational activities for those so inclined.  Known for its cultural heritage you will be amazed with local art galleries and live theatre at the Huron Country Playhouse.  A different cultural phenomenon rages just outside of town limits at the Grand Bend Motorplex where they play host to the International Hot Rod Association with Canada’s longest running and largest drag race park.

Residents come from all over North America whether seasonal or year round.  For those who call Grand Bend home they are not wanting for all the comforts that life has to offer.  Your children are well looked after in town as well as when they reach the age to be bussed to nearby communities for the later grades.  Grand Bend hosts several health centers for day-to-day care and full hospital services are within 20 minutes or so in an emergency.  

Grand Bend has a year round population of about 2,000 residents and the seasonal population can bring that to over 50,000 on those long summer months and weekends.  While not always shining Grand Bend enjoys more than its share.  Average daytime highs from May through September typically range from 18° C to 26° C (64 to 79° F).

Walk the beach or the trails, bike the paths and country roads or navigate the waterways with your canoe, kayak, sail or other watercraft, swing at one of the nearby golf courses or from the old oak in front of your home or simply sit and watch the greatest sunsets that nature has to offer.
