Peterborough shot to fame as the gateway to the Kawartha Lakes, a huge draw for local and international visitors since the early 20th century.
Take a break from the city and head to Dare 2 Dream Farm and Haliburton Sculpture Forest. Museum-lovers will appreciate Oeno Gallery and Lang Pioneer Village. Venture out of the city with trips to Horsin Around Riding Ranch (in Marmora), PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary (in Roseneath) and Dromoland Orchard & Stables (in Little Britain). There's still lots to do: trek along Warsaw Caves, stroll through Mount St. Louis Moonstone, experience rural life at Haute Goat, and enjoy the sand and surf at Dunes Beach.
