Welcome to Barrie, where great hiking trails, outdoor recreation and theatre are just the beginning.
An affordable year-round destination, Barrie is your family vacation, your outdoor adventure, your romantic getaway, your shopping experience, your day at the gallery, your night on the town and your home away from home.
Barrie is your all-in-one travel experience. Stay at one of our award-winning hotels and catch a monthly festival. Or set up camp and enjoy a wilderness day trip and boating excursion. There are many things to see and do, for anyone of any age. Surrounding the shores of Kempenfelt Bay on Lake Simcoe, we are less than 1 hour north of Toronto. Nestled in Central Ontario, we are your perfect destination and base camp for nearby attractions and surrounding areas.
Whether you are planning an extended vacation, or stopping in for the day on your way to the cottage, Barrie is where you will find what you are looking for. We hope you enjoy exploring our beautiful city.
