Kawartha Region

Water sports at their best! If you enjoy the water in the summer, this is the place for you. Kayak, canoe, swim, water ski, even suntan on the nearby beaches. Check out the Canadian Canoe Museum and learn about the evolution of the canoe. The peaceful natural setting of Peterborough Ontario and surrounding area has been a popular tourist destination since 1876. You won't find garish development here, however, as the setting is still miraculously unspoiled. Pleasure boaters and other water sports players will be well entertained, as activities such as these are the focus of the lifestyle here. The world's largest collection of canoes and kayaks can be found at the Canadian Canoe Museum, where the evolution of the canoe is presented, along with aspects of the fur trade. Avid shoppers will be impressed with the 500 plus specialty shops and boutiques to be found in downtown Peterborough Ontario, as well as a good selection of hotels, resorts, cottages, and bed and breakfasts.

The Muskoka Lakes Region

This, the famous 'cottage country' of Ontario, is the place to kick off your shoes and take it easy in the stunning surroundings of orchards, beaches, forests, and lakes.

This is Ontario's beloved cottage country, covered in lakes, orchard farms and forests. Rent a cottage, or book a beautifully appointed bed and breakfast online, and get ready to relax Ontario style. Go fishing, book a steam ship or cruise ship, sit by the lake on a lawn chair and read until the sun sets. In the winter, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing are the cool things to do. Whenever you visit, the natural beauty of the area will astound you as you become part of nature. The Muskoka Lakes region is a haven for beach and cottage lovers! Explore this charming recreational paradise and start creating Ontario cottage memories for yourself!

Southern Georgian Bay and Lake Simcoe

Barrie Ontario is a popular spot located on Lake Simcoe, the lake with the longest freshwater beach in the world. Skiing at Blue Mountain resort village (the largest ski resort in near Toronto) is a winter treat for Ontarians and visitors alike. The newly-renovated resort is more than a ski hill, with a stunning golf course, and many other activities. Sainte Marie Among the Hurons in Midland is an attraction in which guides in period dress tell the story of 17th century life in the region. Wasaga Beach and surrounding area are lively spots for the young and the young at heart.

The Haliburton Highlands

Lace up your hiking boots, and get ready for the hike of your life in the wilderness of the Haliburton Highlands! And don't let the snow keep you away in the winter! The territory here is perfect for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

This region, located just south of Algonquin Provincial Park, is covered in forests and rock, making it ideal hiking territory. Pack a lunch, lace up your hiking boots, and head off on the four-hour 'Walk in the Clouds', a hike that travels along a suspended walkway at Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve. Each winter, the Haliburton Highlands Dogsled Derby is held, where spectators get a taste of this truly Canadian sport.

Lake Ontario Ports of Call

Charming towns and lakeside paths are ready to be explored in the southern part of this region. The beautiful water of Lake Ontario is only a short walk away when you stay in any of these lakeside spots, where water sports of all varieties are enjoyed year-round.

Known for its historic inns, bed and breakfasts, and spas, this stunning vacation spot is well worth checking out. Situated along the gentle shores of Lake Ontario, guests can shop along 19th Century Victorian streets, hike, and participate in the water sports at their leisure. In the pastoral setting of Brighton Ontario and the nearby Presquille Provincial Park, one encounters apple orchards and wetlands that attract many beautiful birds. Port Hope's Capitol Theatre is a charming spot with a walled Medieval courtyard. Canada's only remaining atmospheric theatre, this spot attracts a wide variety of performance genres. Book accommodations online and spend time in a cottage or bed and breakfast on the shores of Lake Ontario.
