With the majority of the Province now in Stage 3 of the Province’s recovery plan, and people are feeling the urge to travel, the Town of Gravenhurst has been has created a microsite at to answer the call and showcase everything that the town has to offer.

The town transformed the “Explore and Play” option into ‘Visit Gravenhurst’ where visitors and residents alike can find information on dining, accommodations, attractions, events and activities, as well as suggested itineraries to spend a day or longer in Gravenhurst.

Jeff Loney, the Manager of Economic Development says “We’ve learned that the greater the availability and access to good information, the higher the success rate is for our community to be chosen as a top destination location, and in turn creates more exposure for our tourism and retail operators.”

This content, while tourism based, will also be helpful for local residents. The site will provide assistance with finding things to do for your friends and families when they visit and they allow residents to discover the town they live in by being a “hometown tourist”.

Loney says they plan to provide insider tips, itinerary suggestions,  and guest bloggers sharing their ideas on what to do in town and ideas for residents to have a staycation.”
