Welcome To My Own Backyard
What better place to start exploring In My Own Backyard than in my “hometown”, Kincardine, Ontario. The saying “home is where the heart is” has never been truer for me.
I moved away from Kincardine when I finished high school, which has now been 44 years, but as I get older I find that the lake continues to call me home more and more everyday. Boy, do I ever miss my beach!
Station Beach, Kincardine, Ontario
Kincardine is a small town located in Southwestern Ontario on the shores of Lake Huron, one of Canada’s Great Lakes.
Whenever I return to Kincardine for a visit, I always pay a visit to the Station Beach. The Station Beach is the perfect place to hang out with family and friends on a warm summer day, and it has become well known across Canada for its surfing and kiting.
The Station Beach offers a front row seat for watching the boats coming in and going out of the Kincardine harbour as well as the most beautiful sunsets in the world. If you are not a lover of beaches, you can take a break and hike the trail which is completely accessible from the beach, or drop your line from the south pier and hope that some fish come your way.
Whatever your interests are, Station Beach provides entertainment and activities for the entire family. The beach is a perfectly safe swimming area for the little ones, and offer activities for all ages and interests. The beach is never over crowded like many of the tourist beaches in Ontario, and it is the perfect place to spend a day with friends and family.
Station Beach, has remained one of my favorite places to hang out whenever I am visiting In My Own Backyard during the summer months. Will you be joining me at the beach this summer?
