Planning to make the most of my summer vacation, I decided to visit Barrie. During this time, there are many activities and events taking place here. If you want to save some money and still have a lovely vacation, this is a place to be. Here are some of the fun things that you can be a part of.
- Barrie Jazz and Blues Festival
This is an annual event and is known to run for a week in the month of June. I was able to witness some of the amazing talents. However, you don’t have to be a blues or jazz enthusiast to enjoy this event. Enjoy live music and have a great time.
The summer trip to Barrie will be incomplete if you do not visit Kempenfest. This is an age-old summer ritual of Barrie. To my surprise, this turned out to be one of the largest crafts and art festival of North America. Also, you will be able to enjoy great music.
- Explore downtown
Go and explore the heart of the city. You will find some lovely art centers in downtown. Visit a café and sip on a cup of coffee. I have to say that the restaurants in here serve lip-smacking food. It has so many things to offer. I got some local-made clothes from the downtown market. In case you are visiting on a Saturday, check out the farmer’s market.
- Head to the beach
There is nothing better than taking a dip in the water on a hot summer morning. Visit the Kempenfelt Bay to enjoy the cool water. There are several beautiful beaches in this city. You can spend the whole day with your family on the beaches. It is the great way to enjoy the summer weather.
