1. Live Your Best Life at Grand Bend Beach

Grand Bend’s main beach is one of only 22 in Canada that has earned an official Blue Flag status for its water quality and safety.

Whether you want to bring out your inner adventurer by parasailing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, and tubing, or just want to stroll along its splash pad, playground, and boardwalk, it’s a haven for fun things to do in Grand Bend.

Once you’ve had enough sun, check out the Starlite Drive-In to watch a movie from your car. There are also several lakefront cottages you can rent if you decide to stay the weekend. We’d start packing our bags like right now if we were you—just don’t forget to hit your nearest TNCC location on the way!

Edibles For Summer Weather

While you’re working on getting the perfect summer glow, make the experience even better with some of the best cannabis products perfect for the beach. Here are some of our top picks that you can grab at True North Cannabis Co.’s Grand Bend dispensary:

2. Share A Meal at Best Friend Pizza

Next on our list of what to do in Grand Bend is getting together with your besties for a bite to eat at Best Friend Pizza.

Get (several) slices with the toppings of your choosing. If for some reason you aren’t satisfied with delicious pizza, there’s also pasta, salads, and sandwiches on their menu—as well as some treats to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The long and the short of it is if you’ve worked up a case of the munchies after indulging in some of the awesome TNCC products, this is the place to go!

3. Fill Your Shopping Bag at Pinery Market

Is it even a weekend getaway if you don’t do a little shopping?

After hitting the beach, drop by Pinery Market. It’s known for being home to amazing vendors who offer unique hand-crafted items and vintage finds. You’re sure to find something to commemorate your amazing trip.

However, there’s more to this market than just shopping opportunities. You’ll also find entertainment, live music, photo booths, a beer garden, and more great food. It’s no wonder Pinery has been going strong for more than 50 years!

4. Join the Dance Party at Willie’s Beach Bar

If you’re wondering what to do in Grand Bend at night, then you should know it has a thriving bar and club scene as well.

Willie’s Beach Bar takes the crown as one of the go-to destinations for some nightlife fun. You can stay up treating yourself to their amazing—and hilariously-named—cocktails such as the “Bad and Boozy,” “Tropic Like It’s Hot,” and “Buried Treasure.”

Pair it with their signature Willy Burger and you’ve got yourself completely fuelled up for the dance party that takes place at 10:00 p.m. Their DJs know exactly how to supply the perfect soundtrack to your summer. Add in some extra TNCC products for extra fun!
