As a real estate agent who specializes in Wasaga Beach, let me be your guide to what Wasaga Beach Ontario has to offer as a neighbourhood to finding homes for sale in the area.
Wasaga Beach is the longest freshwater beach in the world. While it is a perfect place for beach lovers, many of today’s residents don’t go to the Beach at all. With miles of white sand to enjoy, Wasaga Beach attracts over 2 million visitors each year for their annual vacations or weekend getaways. In addition to the beach, the semi-rural town has miles of hiking and cycling trails. Cross Country Skiing and Snowmobiling have become popular winter activities. It is, essentially, a recreation lover’s paradise.
Wasaga Beach covers just over 60 square miles. Recreation and Tourism are just about the only Industries. Many residents commute to jobs in Barrie, Orillia, or even Camp Borden. Many other residents are Retired. It is a very close-knit town and its 15,000 year-round residents are known for their friendliness and willingness to interact with visitors. It has a few elementary schools, but high school students are bussed to Collingwood Collegiate Institute. Shopping Centres have recently been built at each end of Wasaga Beach, and Medical Centers are becoming established. There is a state of the art Recreation Centre and YMCA. Many people who live in Wasaga Beach love its small town closeness, year-round recreational activities and proximity to the Beach. You will, too.
