Discover Southampton's fascinating past

Lake Huron is studded with shipwrecks, and there's no better place to learn about its fascinating past than the Bruce County Museum. It's filled with colorful exhibits, focusing on First Nations fishing, memorabilia and more. Chantry Island sits just offshore and is a haven for migratory birds. Guided tours led by the Marine Heritage Society offer a unique chance to admire the windswept Chantry Island Lighthouse, peer into the Keeper's Cottage and spot nesting colonies of great blue herons, ring-billed gulls and double-crested cormorants.

Planning a summer escape? Southampton vacation rentals unlock access to a host of postcard-perfect cottages on the banks of Lake Huron. While it may not be warm enough to swim, spring and fall can be beautiful times to visit. Both seasons usher in crisp temperatures and thinner crowds.
