My top 10 list of great things about Barrie!
1. Affordability – it truly pays to leave the GTA!
GTA condo’s $700k+ Barrie $300k+
GTA townhomes $650k+ Barrie $340k+
GTA detached $850k+ Barrie $475k+
Would you not love to say “mortgage free” sooner than later?
2. People are friendlier! I attribute this to the greater affordability and lakeside living…
3. Lakeside living. Imagine strolling the boardwalk with an ice cream after dinner overlooking Lake Simcoe? Sweet!
4. Shopping. So many options! Many local plazas, Kozlov Mall, Georgian Mall, Park Place, Walmart Super Centre plaza and convenient short drive as well to Tanger Outlet mall! Additionally many independent and boutique shops for unique finds!
5. Outdoor living. Ardagh bluffs for hiking on scenic trails and great photography opportunities! Close proximity to Snow Valley, Horseshoe and Mount St. Louis for skiing, tubing and snowboarding. Lake Simcoe for swimming, boating, kayaking. Nothing like outdoor exercise.
6. Entertainment – dare you to keep up with all the concerts, festivals, live music, farmers markets and more that will never leave you short on choices of things to do and see!
7. Transit. Pretty much everything in any direction is “10 minutes” by car no matter where you are going. And the local transit system has many routes with buses always on the go for getting around.
8. Hockey. Incredible hockey from BMHA for your kids own involvement to Barrie Colts at Molson Centre. Its a great night out for families to enjoy with contstant entertainment, 50-50 draw that gets crazy high jackpots and giveaways by Charlie Horse!
9. Dining. Wide variety of traditional big box chain restaurants to unique fine dining, pubs, cafes to pop by. It would be hard not to find somewhere great to go!
10. Parks. So many parks and greenspaces with tennis courts, soccer pitches and outdoor ice rinks. Did I mention the outdoor lifestyle?
