Take a Hike!
Seriously, we're not telling you were to go. Take in Barrie's beautiful waterfront on the Kempenfelt Bay Waterfront Trail! While you're at it, try to catch a glimpse of Kempenfelt Kelly, Barrie's own sea monster! Better yet, get a video! The Ardaugh Bluffs is another option with 17 kms of trails waiting to be explored! No sea monster here though :(
Catch an Outdoor Movie
Join the Lawnchair Luminata and experience a movie by the waterfront on the big screen! Family friendly (and free) movies play throughout the summer, check the website for the schedule. Just don't forget the popcorn. Or the ju-jubes. Or the chocolate covered raisins. Or the soda. Or the Mike & Ikes. Or the nachos. Just bring it all, mmmk!?
Check out a Festival
Chances are, if you're in Barrie and looking for things to do, there's a festival happening! Barrie is home to a number of summer festivals including: The Barrie Waterfront Festival, Barrie Jazz & Blues Festival, Promenade Days, Craft Beer & BBQ Festival, Kempenfest & more! Nearby Burl's Creek hosts summer festivals and concerts too!
