Barrie Condos for Rent
If you are a renter looking to fix yourself up with some fantastic accommodations a fair ways north of the city of Toronto, then the best place for you to look would be the city of Barrie. Urban but not congested, Barrie sits on the southwestern shores of Lake Simcoe and offers spectacular views of the lake almost no matter where you are in the city. But even above the benefits that the views and overall location would offer to you, Barrie also has a very generous number of condominium apartments throughout the city limits. By placing yourself in any one of the Barrie condos for rent, you will be able to experience the best of a small city's comforts, as well as the idea of being such a short drive away from the open countryside (and an even shorter drive away from the shores of Lake Simcoe, where watersports and beach relaxation await you). The city of Barrie also offers to its renters the ability to experience plenty of greenspaces and parks that can be found within the city's borders (such as Heritage Park right on Lake Simcoe's shore or Arboretum Sunnidale Park a bit further inland from the lake).
Life in Barrie is much quieter than life in a place like Toronto, despite the fact Barrie is a city, and renters seeking Barrie condos for rent will be able to experience this relatively increased quiet, along with several amenities (grocery stores, mom-and-pop shops, and even some restaurants). Renters who are concerned about getting around the city without having to rely on their own vehicle can rejoice in that there are multiple transit bus stops throughout the city. A way to be able to reach the bigger cities to the south without taking an unnecessarily long drive is by checking out the Allandale Waterfront GO train station in the southern part of Barrie. Renters looking for countryside-oriented things to do can also make use of the couple of golf courses found within Barrie's vicinity (those being Tangle Creek, National Pines Golf Club, and Barrie Country Club). Renters will also be able to also make full use of the Snow Valley Ski Resort located just a bit to the northwest of the city (in the event that they want to have a total winter vacation getaway and still be a short drive from their front doorstep, at the end of the day).
In renting one of the Barrie condos for rent, renters will be able to take advantage of the fact that these condominium apartments are laden with all of the comforts and luxuriant amenities that one would come to expect of the condominium lifestyle. You'll be living an above-average life, and you wouldn't even have to have had to rent in the heart of downtown Toronto to achieve that! Besides a security service and quite friendly neighbors, renters in Barrie can also benefit from the idea that the various low-rise and mid-rise condo buildings are mostly congregated near the heart of the city, thereby putting them almost within walking distance of all of Barrie's finest shopping and eateries. To top everything off, if you ever felt like heading down into Toronto for the afternoon, but didn't want to take the GO train, the Highway 400 passes right through the western part of Barrie; that being said, the Highway 400 takes you right down into the city of Toronto, where it turns into Black Creek Drive. If the Highway 400 is taken northward instead however, it goes so far north that you'll find yourself almost at the shores of eastern Lake Huron before that highway reaches its end.
