The Community of Grimsby


About Grimsby, Ontario

Grimsby has something for every homeowner! From the distinctly brightly painted cottages of Historic Grimsby Beach, to the beautiful stately townhomes at Grimsby’s Marina Foran’s Marine, there are many neighbourhoods to consider in Grimsby. The downtown area has many beautiful century homes that have been carefully cared for and restored. 

There is the Nelles Neighbourhood nearby which offers larger lots on solidly constructed ranch, two story and side split homes, with a warm friendly neighbourhood feel. 

If you are looking for a newer home, there are a few developments near the downtown core that have built many townhomes and detached homes, or you can take in the lake views from one of the beautiful newer condominiums such as Waterview Condominiums near the water and the border of Hamilton.

 If you are looking for a unique artisan created find, or a warm cup of coffee at Station Coffee House, it can be found strolling through the downtown streets. Grimsby is also the beginning of the wine route, and if you follow the main street toward Niagara you will be able to delight in many wines and restaurant experiences with fine dining offered by some of the region’s top chefs. 

One of my personal favourites is to stop in for some wine tasting at Peninsula Ridge Estates Winery followed by a delicious meal in their intimate century home restaurant.
