The largest port on Lake Huron, Goderich offers a thriving and historic business district, a wide public beach and boardwalk, many restaurants, a world class fitness facility and many trails to enjoy the more natural side of Huron County. The old train tracks are now a busy hiking and jogging trail with stunning views as it crosses high above the Maitland River. There are also more trails along the floodplain and rapids of the Maitland River and also south of town near the fitness facilities..there is a 3.3 km trail in the Maitland Woods where the combination of trees and ponds makes it a great place to see wildlife including nesting waterfowl.

A town bordering on Lake Huron that is about a half hour drive north of Goderich along highway 21. There are many attractions including the Kincardine Lighthouse and Museum, The Rock Garden ( near the beach north of downtown ), the Bluewater Playhouse Theater as well as great hiking including the Burnside Memorial Trail and the boardwalk which runs along the beach. There is also great birdwatching at a pond at Legion Park just south of town.
