"Simcoe District" was established in 1843 by the Legislature of Upper Canada. In 1994 the Corporation of the County of Simcoe was restructured into sixteen local municipalities, including the Cities of Barrie and Orillia. Home to the longest freshwater beach in the world, the County of Simcoe offers live theatre, boating, fishing, sporting events, concerts, festivals and events, museums, hiking trails....the list goes on. A four season destination with something for everyone!
“November’s sky is chill and drear, November’s leaf is red and sear.”
Sir Walter Scott
"The wind that makes music in November corn is in a hurry. The stalks hum, the loose husks whisk skyward in half-playing swirls, and the wind hurries on... A tree tries to argue, bare limbs waving, but there is no detaining the wind."
"Fallen leaves lying on the grass in the November sun bring more happiness than the daffodils."
