One of the most exciting parts of growth in the Durham Region is the tourism sector!
There are many major tourism developments coming soon:
Durham Live, an upcoming entertainment and tourism district in Pickering, will bring exciting services and facilities to the region including a convention centre, film studios, an amphitheatre, a casino, an indoor water park, five-star boutiques, hotels and an office tower.
In the summer of 2018, Groupe Nordik held a groundbreaking ceremony for its third Nordik Spa-Nature in Whitby. The spa features a multi-sensory relaxation and healing centre, covering a 385,423-square-foot area. Nordik Spa-Nature will be able to welcome up to 1,100 visitors.
The Whitby Entertainment Centrum is now home to the Whitby Playdium which features a wide variety of interactive experiences, video games, climbing walls, bowling, rope courses and two-level laser tag.
The accommodation sector in Durham Region is growing to meet industry and visitor demands. Travelers are in the region for sports, business and leisure travel.
Exemplary accommodations are an essential piece of the tourism experience. Durham Region has more than 18 established chain hotels as well as many attractive bed and breakfasts and inns across all eight municipalities.
In 2019, TownePlace Suites by Marriott and Courtyard by Marriott both opened in Oshawa. The Best Western Hotel and Convention Centre and Fairfield Inn and Suites in Ajax, as well as the Comfort Inn and Suites in Scugog are slated for future development. More information at durham.ca.
