Tourism is year-round, with ice fishing and the Georgina Winter Festival encouraging activity during the winter months. Tourism remains its major economic activity, although agricultural and sod operations are also significant. The town contains a number of historic buildings including The Manor, the home of J. O'Brien Bourchier, an early settler, leading citizen and mill owner; the Udora Mill, one of the last functioning mills in Ontario operating from the 1860s to the 1970s; the Sutton Mill; Thomas Mossington House and St. Andrews Presbyterian Church.
