Things To Do in Simcoe Muskoka this May Long Weekend

Are you going to the cottage or maybe looking for a fun day activity to do this May 2/4 long weekend? Your North Life has put together a guide of five fun things to do this weekend in Simcoe Muskoka.

May 2/4 Craft Beer Festival

Happening in downtown Huntsville you can enjoy the atmosphere in Muskoka that the long weekend brings at the Craft Beer Festival. There will be over 15 local breweries from across the region here to showcase their different beers with samples for you to taste test and buy. Grab your friends and enjoy a fun afternoon tasting beer.


Fishing is a great activity to enjoy by yourself or with friends. Simcoe Muskoka has an abundance of lakes, rivers, and ponds to choose from. If you’re looking for the best spot for fishing Lake Vernon, Kempenfelt Bay, or Lake Muskoka will provide you with a beautiful backdrop while you enjoy the peacefulness and wait for a bite.

LIV Outside is an outdoor adventure company located in Bracebridge that offers great family day activities. Their fishing tour shows you the best spots for fishing and how to attract more fish to your rod.


Boat launches and marinas are plentiful in Simcoe Muskoka. Lake Couchiching, Georgian Bay, and Lake Simcoe are great places to boat because not only do you have beautiful landscapes to enjoy as your drive by, but they’re also near towns and cities. You can park your boat at the Lake Couchiching marina and walk to downtown Orillia to enjoy a meal at one of their many local restaurants.

TreeTop Trekking

Treetop Trekking at Horseshoe Resort is a great family activity for everyone to enjoy. Get outside to enjoy the beautiful weather and get some physical activity at the same time as you climb from tree to tree.

Dine Locally

Take advantage of the beautiful weather we are supposed to have by sitting on a patio to enjoy a cold drink or delicious meal. Enjoy your drink overlooking downtown Barrie and Kempenfelt Bay at Hooligan’s Rooftop.
