Barrie, with its lovely downtown waterfront, is just a short drive from the GTA and filled with activities for all ages.  The waterfront is THE place for many community events and water sports – canoeing, kayaking, standup paddle boarding (SUP) and more.  It is also home to the iconic Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery,  established in 2004 and which, as per their mission statement, “leads the Craft Beer Revolution in Ontario”.  Kempenfelt Bay makes a great fall fishing hole and anglers can take part in the 8th Annual Barrie Fall Fishing Festival, September 21 to 30.  Barrie is an ideal destination to view the fall colours.  Tour by car, bike, motorcycle or on foot and hike the many trail systems the city has to offer.  Close to many attractions, it’s a great home base for visiting attractions close by. Ready to get started?  The staff at Tourism Barrie can help plan your trip from start to finish, finding you a place to stay, too. 
This four-season destination has awesome downhill and snowboarding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, snowtubing and spectacular ice fishing (weather permitting).
