Day 1

Arrive in the Midland area today, and spend the day playing along one of two area beaches.  The clear shallow waters and white sand make Balm Beach perfect for the whole family.  Or plan a daytrip (or camping trip) to Awenda Provincial Park.  The beach area is located below the Nipissing Bluff, with five differing Georgian Bay beaches to choose from. (There’s even a pet friendly one!)  Access to the Awenda beaches is along a walking trail, so be prepared to carry your beach accessories!
