There is a public library, several restaurants, and a yoga studio in town.

Spectacular fall colors greet visitors as the town is located just south of the Mohawk Trail.

Old Sturbridge Village is located 45 minutes south of Barre. Other places of interest within an hour's drive include Emily Dickinson's home in Amherst, Worcester's Museum of Art and Higgins Armory Museum, the Brookfield apple orchards,and Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire.
