Things to Do

Get ready for outdoor fun when you visit Barrie, Ontario this summer! 

Get a breath of fresh air on your next Barrie getaway as you explore some of Barrie's hundreds of kilometres of trails for cycling and inline skating. Enjoy the beautiful waterfront as you take a leisurely cycle or skate along the 6.71 kilometre paved and crushed gravel waterfront trail before enjoying a refreshing beverage and lunch at one of Barrie's many fine downtown restaurants. For a more challenging ride, indulge in the serenity of nature as you cycle along the many kilometres of trail through conservation areas, watersheds, and woodlands.

Enjoy our fun and exciting festivals and events including the Waterfront Festival, Celebrate Barrie, Promenade Days, and the Barrie Dragonboat Festival. Bring the family for one of Ontario’s Top 100 Festivals, Kempenfest.

Looking for Things to do indoors? Barrie has tons of indoor adventures, shopping, and great restaurants for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the winter season indoors! Head out to Central Ontario’s largest shopping mall, RioCan Georgian Mall, or drive a little further south for the 400 Market or Tanger Outlets! Great stores, great deals, and good times!

Take a day off from your Summer Fun adventures with the family and visit In Play, PUTT Mini Golf, Creative Café, Retroplanet, or Bowlerama. We promise you won’t hear the words “I’m bored” from your kids in Barrie this season!
