Day Trips By Car From Barrie

As we welcome the return of warmer climes, we can all indulge in notions of traditional spring and summer fare like patios, barbecues…and road trips!

Of course, Barrie’s central location makes us a prime hub to launch car voyages through the warm weather months. In fact, every Thursday through September, we’ll bring a new Ontario destination you can reach in a reasonable amount of travel time.

And if you’ve got some suggestions, we want to hear them!

Road Trippin’ – Picton

You’ll find Sandbanks Provincial Park in Picton, the jewel in stunning Prince Edward County. And even if you are the kind of person who doesn’t usually have a thing for lakes, this one will win you over.

The area is awash in clean, clear water over rock-free sand bars. Bring a stand-up paddle board if you’ve got one, because the water here is calm and often shallow. It’s safe for the kiddos, as long as they are in sight. And the  shoreline is ideal for sandcastle construction and mudpie making.

Featuring the world’s-largest baymouth bar on a freshwater lake, the beaches here are the real draw, including the dunes—some as high as 60 metres!

It’s $20 to access the park’s gates and park one vehicle (or less depending on how long you stay) but there are no other costs to worry about. Camping is available as well, but registration is needed in advance.

And in the town itself, there are plenty of points of interest to explore.

Picton and the surrounding region are known for its Loyalist heritage, architecturally-significant buildings, quirky town hill and Main Street shops.

History buffs can take a step back in time at Macaulay Heritage Park.  It’s located in the fairgrounds where the first local fair was held in 1836.

Further, you can sail in through Picton Bay to the harbour and marina, where you can dock and walk right into town,
