The economy has struggled for some years, particularly since a major fire in late November 2007 destroyed many of the stores, due to a reduction in the number of tourists in an area where the primary shopping season is three to four months per year. In March 2017, the town passed its Downtown Development Master Plan, a 20 year strategy for significant redevelopment of the tourist area and adding a downtown to the business area. The goal is to improve tourism, diversify the economy, and rid itself of the “party town” image.
Over two million people visit Wasaga Beach every summer, attracted by the town’s freshwater beach (stretching 14 kilometers or 8.7 miles), swim in shallow (warm), clean water and enjoy the panoramic views of the Niagara Escarpment across the bay. There are many recreational trails that are used for hiking, cycling, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The Nottawasaga River offers game fishing and canoe routes.
