Electric City
Peterborough shot to fame as the gateway to the Kawartha Lakes, a huge draw for local and international visitors since the early 20th century. The first Canadian town to implement electric street lighting, this "Electric City" remains the center of technology in Ontario, which houses numerous multinational high-tech corporations. For tourists on holiday in Peterborough, the city offers romantic boat cruises on the Otonabee River, guided walk along a network of scenic paths, and numerous indoor and outdoor music events. A short drive out of the city you can also find conservation areas and provincial parks, ideal for swimming, camping, and spelunking enthusiasts. Take stress off the schedule by using our Canada online route planner.

Where to stay in Peterborough

Peterborough tourism relies heavily on the surrounding nature, so most of its accommodations sit outside the city center itself. Your best bet is to look for one of the mid-range inns lining either bank of the Otonabee River, where you'll have easy access to the city's pleasant parks. If you want something with a bit more character, look for private vacation rentals offering river views.
