These highways provide direct links to Toronto via Highway 10, Guelph/Kitchener/Hamilton via Highway 6, Collingwood/Barrie via Highway 26, and Sarnia/USA via Highway 21. Highway 6 extends north to Tobermory and the ferry crossing to Manitoulin Island.

Attractions in the Owen Sound Area

The Northern Terminus-Underground Railroad
The park setting for the project is on the Sydenham River in Owen Sound Ontario. It is
believed that Owen Sound was the northern most terminus for the Underground Railroad
where many former slaves settled. Black History In Owen Sound-North of Toronto


Owen Sound Marine and Rail Museum
The Owen Sound harbour was a bustling waterfront at the turn of the twentieth century and served as the "Gateway to the West". From 1885 to 1911, Owen Sound prospered as the busiest port on the Upper Great Lakes, moving immigrants west to the prairies and bringing prairie grain east. The museum collection includes scale models of ships, steamers, trains, a dugout canoe, shipbuilding tools, marine and railway uniforms, various flags and many other items relating to the area's marine and rail past. The displays are rotated on a regular basis, so each Museum visit offers a different glimpse into days gone by. See Museum

Outdoor Experiences

The Bruce Penisnual is an excellent road trip or great drive at any time of year, especially the fall where
you can see great stands of hardwood forest with Georigan Bay and green cedar back drops
