Why We Love Barrie

Barrie is the place we call home - a place we love to live! There is such a wide range of activities, festivals and events that you are sure to find something that peaks your interest. And being located just a short drive away from both the busy Greater Toronto Area and the slower pace of cottage country means you get to enjoy what those areas have to offer as well!

Downtown Barrie

Head to downtown Barrie and you may find yourself touring a brewery, taking in a theatre performance, visiting an art centre, or simply wandering through the downtown shops.

Seasonal Activities

Barrie has great outdoor winter and summer activities. Just a few of the activities include skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, fishing, boating, golfing, hiking and cycling.


There are many festivals and events happening in Barrie and the surrounding area throughout the year. An Ice fishing tournament, Promenade Days & Canada Day Festivities, Wayhome Music Festival, Kempenfest, Barrie Waterfront Festival, Boots & Hearts and Barrielicious are just a few of the events that the area has to offer.

Just a Short Drive Away

Being close to the Greater Toronto Area and cottage country allows easy access to all that those areas have to offer. Head to the city to take in a sports game, enjoy the theatre or simply to take advantage of the activities it has to offer. And if cottage country is more your pace, you can head  that direction to kick back and relax!

Barrie is a great place to call home. If you are considering a move to Barrie, contact the Soatto Realty Group today to see how we can help.
