Delight your taste buds
Varying widely, depending on the region, Canadian cuisine is a distinct hybrid of English and French influences, ensuring the food is never out of flavour. Canadians can boast of important food inventions such as peanut butter and mac n' cheese, and where better to enjoy those meals than in a restaurant in Ontario. Lake Simcoe Arms is an authentic British pub and restaurant sitting a stone's throw away from the lake. You definitely have to try the French onion soup and the pulled pork quesadillas combo for an unforgettable gastronomical experience. Located in Jackson Point, the establishment is also a fine watering hole if you like a drink.
If you prefer some fine Italian dishes, Pasta Plus in Innisfil is the Naples of Lake Simcoe. The family-friendly restaurant offers exceptional Italian sandwiches and pasta linked with a phenomenal dining experience that will have you coming back often. Apart from the impeccable service, the hilarious owners are set on splitting your sides. Caution! The yummy homemade tomato sauce will have you begging for more.
Infinite family fun opportunities in Lake Simcoe
With so many impressive attractions, a visit to Lake Simcoe is guaranteed to offer boundless fun to your young ones over the upcoming school breaks and holidays. Tyndale Park is by far the best family beach area in Barrie. Offering well-equipped wash-rooms and a fully stocked playground, Tyndale Park is the perfect place for some family bonding in the large picnic shelter overlooking Lake Simcoe. You can also spark your kids' imagination by renting an ice hut in Barrie's waterfront for some ice fishing in the cold months.
If there's something else Barrie is good at, it's cycling trails. With over 53 bicycle routes ranging from just a few kilometres to over 97 kilometres to explore, no track will offer as much thrill as the Barrie North Shore Trail. Running through the whole length of Barrie's Kempenfelt Bay, the former rail corridor is now a multi-purpose trail that spans 3 kilometres along the lake. The cool trail continues all the way to Orillia if your family is up for the challenge.
Discover Canada's great outdoors
Summertime is swim time! Despite Ontario being bordered by water on all sides, nothing beats a cool plunge in the waters of Lake Simcoe. The Sibbald Point Provincial Park is no doubt the best spot to enjoy the lake in. Perched on the southern shores of Lake Simcoe, the large park offers a multitude of activities to engage in. Apart from a wonderful sandy beach for swimming, visitors can discover a variety of wooded hiking trails. It is also close to a wide range of Lake Simcoe vacation homes.
Whether you are an ardent nature lover or you are just picking it up, there's nothing quite like a day out exploring new trails. There are a couple of trails to choose from in the area. The Scout Valley Loop trail is one of them. The moderately trafficked trail sits just off the majestic city of Orillia. Featuring three trails that suit hikers of all skill sets, the 230-acre park will offer stunning views of wildflowers and the great forest scenery. Being an all year round trail, you will also have as much pleasure on snowshoes in the winter. Additionally, leashed dogs are allowed!
Try your luck at fishing from your vacation cottage at Lake Simcoe
Sitting deep in the heart of Ontario's great lakes region, Lake Simcoe is a hotbed of events all year round. One of Canada's biggest registered fishing derbies will be taking place between 20th April and 11th May. The 39th annual Orillia Perch Festival will be taking place in lakes Couchiching and Simcoe, and to win, you just have to fish like never before. Renting one of the beachfront Lake Simcoe cottage rentals will surely put you at an advantage. After the day is over, take the catch back to your vacation home and throw it on the grill.
