About Barrie

Barrie is a beautiful lakeside city whose waterfront draws visitors from near and far. Kempenfelt Bay is home to three beaches, lush bayside gardens, and the serene Waterfront Trail, but Barrie also has much more to offer. A walking tour through the historic Downtown district reveals the city's diverse cultural and architectural heritage. This is also the place to embrace Barrie's thriving art scene in the form of the renowned MacLaren Art Centre and the city's iconic Spirit Catcher sculpture by the bay. Standout outdoor activities include hot air balloon rides over Barrie, Lake Simcoe scuba diving, and wintertime skiing.

With a dizzying selection of antique shops, flea markets, small boutiques, and big shopping malls, Barrie is home to a one-of-a-kind shopping culture that is well worth exploring. And if you're visiting during the ice hockey season, be sure to catch a game at the Barrie Molson Centre.
