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. Use our Canada holiday planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Peterborough.
