A typical May 2-4 weekend will see the arrival of thousands of high school aged young adults, most looking to let their hair down, have fun and break a few rules. Ahhhh, to be young again! <sigh!> A party in Wasaga Beach is a right of passage for many Ontario youth, but what happens if your party gets out of control and you are evicted?

Now and then I get emails from people who describe their memories of Summers in Wasaga. It's incredible to hear about the history of this town. The following is from an email sent to me by Ron Mitchell.
I spent a great part of me childhood at Wasaga Beach with my family in the summer starting 48 years back when you could still drive on the beach and the population was around 6,000. The reason I reached out to you was 35 years ago I worked at a Go Kart track across from the Beacon and I used to go to go there on my lunch and sit at the counter eating fries with gravy, a Vanilla shake and talk to owner Guy.

People email quite often asking for advice about which beach area is best. The truthful answer is all of them because Beach Areas 1-6 are really just one long beach arbitrarily divided into numbered sections, but my advice would change depending on what amenities you'd like to have close by. For example, Beaches 2-4 have lovely shade trees and areas where you can safely BBQ for a family picnic. There is also a bike trail for active people and a playground for kids. Beach 1 has all the bars, touristy beach-themed knick-knack shops and fast food restaurants which tends to appeal to young adults but it also has the splash pad, burgers and ice cream which would definitely appeal to kids.
More information about Allenwood Beach coming soon.
New Wasaga is cut off from Beach Areas 1-6 by the Nottawasaga river which gives it a distinctly unique feeling. This is an area of charming cottages, long time or transplanted residents who sought a quieter lifestyle. Unlike other areas of Wasaga Beach it has no access to Mosley Street. Rather it's a scenic drive down River Road East - past several commercial cottage courts and a marina. Tucked away down a quiet street you will find the public access to the New Wasaga area.
