All About Tiny
Set on the Penetanguishene peninsula in Ontario, the township of Tiny sprawls across 43 miles of coastline along Georgian Bay, the eastern arm of Lake Huron. Tiny, which was named after the town founder’s pet dog in 1822, is a popular summer destination for travelers seeking time on the lake’s sandy beaches and expansive blue waters. The entire peninsula is a haven for boating enthusiasts, and you’ll find many ferries that go to nearby islands.
True to its name, Tiny is compact, with just a few beachside restaurants and shops. You don’t come to Tiny for the city scene, however, but the numerous outdoor activities such as swimming, sailing, or just floating on a raft in the calm lake waters. Just 10 minutes away, the larger city of Penetanguishene is worth visiting to visit its picturesque protected harbors.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Tiny
Ontario has warm summers, making the season a perfect time to visit Tiny and spend your time on or by the lake. The humidity increases along with the temperatures, making dips in the water especially appealing, and be sure to bring mosquito repellent and long-sleeve clothing if you’re planning on staying outdoors as night falls. The biggest celebration of the summer is Canada Day on July 1, when the Penetanguishene Centennial Museum hosts food and games. The leaves change color in the early part of October, making fall a beautiful time to explore the area. Winters can be bitterly cold here, but as Canadians know, you can still enjoy the coldest of winters if you dress for it. The annual Winterama Festival in Penetanguishene in February features snow sculptures, toboggan races, and winter games for all ages. Once the snow melts in March and April, springtime in Tiny is a beautiful time to hike on the local trails.
