Peterborough shot to fame as the gateway to the Kawartha Lakes, a huge draw for local and international visitors since the early 20th century.
Step out of the city life by going to Warsaw Caves and Marvel Rapids Golf Course. Kawartha Country Wines and Lang Pioneer Village are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Peterborough: The Gut Conservation Area (in Apsley) and Bobcaygeon (Bobcaygeon Farmers' Market & Boyd Heritage Museum). There's much more to do: take a peaceful walk through Jackson Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Riverview Park and Zoo, look for all kinds of wild species at Elmhirst's Resort, and contemplate the waterfront views at Chandos Lake.
