Barrie - Ontario

Barrie, Ontario, is a hidden gem of tourism, with a vast array of activities and sights for visitors of all ages and interests. Located on Lake Simcoe’s Kempenfelt Bay fifty minutes north of Toronto, Barrie has 300 hectares of parkland with bicycle trails and golf courses, as well as arts and crafts festivals, a state-of-the-art library, and much more.

Boat rides around Kempenfelt Bay, sporting events, hiking, and fishing are only a few of the activities available in Barrie. The Gryphon Theatre and the Kempenfelt Arts and Crafts Festival can provide indoor entertainment, while a stroll around Barrie’s historic downtown area helps recreate past eras through its architecture and atmosphere. Restaurants and concert venues in the area provide a welcome rest after a downtown tour, while special events like the annual Dragon Boat Festival in August amply fill any spare hours.

Barrie’s vibrant and varied character combines with its lakeside location to make the city ideal for people of all ages and interests to visit. With everything from festivals to water sports to theatre, Barrie should be part of every visit to the Toronto area.
