    The Indian River Reptile Zoo is amazing! All the animals are all rescues, and they are clearly kept in great conditions and tended to by wonderful staff. I spent the whole afternoon there and appreciated all my time! The crocodile/alligator walk is awesome, and there was a short show for kids at the end. Definitely recommend it for anyone in or around the Peterborough area!

    Cool reptile Zoo/animal sanctuary. They have many varieties of snakes, lizards and crocodiles. All animals are well kept in clean environments. The staff is young and knowledgeable which makes the visit entertaining. They have a separate building which houses the croc's and alligators, all of which were saved after being stored by an individual in poor conditions in a warehouse. They have a gift shop and the washrooms are very clean.

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.
