Barrie.

The traditional summer weekend road trip up the 400 is a rite of passage for many in Southern Ontario, even if it does take hours and a dozen bathroom breaks to finally get to the cottage. For those of us who call Barrie home, outdoor leisure isn’t a day long grind; A drive to the beach is a 15 minute, no grid lock cruise. The kids soccer and baseball games are just a few steps walk to one of our 90+ parks. Date night is a stroll through the vibrant downtown core that’s bursting with live music, it’s own film festival and restaurant patios. Barrie’s not just a stop on the way to cottage country, anymore…it could the next step on your adventure.

With a emphasis on four season lifestyles and Age Friendly living to accommodate your immediate and extended family, perhaps you’re about to star in your own story from Oro.
