Peterborough shot to fame as the gateway to the Kawartha Lakes, a huge draw for local and international visitors since the early 20th century.
Venture out of the city with trips to Quinn's Of Tweed Fine Art Gallery (in Tweed), Horsin Around Riding Ranch (in Marmora) and O'Hara Mill Homestead & Conservation Area (in Madoc). There's much more to do: look for gifts at Primitive Designs, contemplate the long history of Hutchison House Museum, grab your bike and head to Peterborough-Lakefield Rotary Greenway Trail, and view the masterpieces at Evans Contemporary.

Many urban centers call themselves "Garden City," but thanks to its many manicured parks filled with native and exotic plants, Victoria probably deserves than moniker more than most.
Change things up with these side-trips from Victoria: Cowichan-Chemainus Historic Scenic Route (in Duncan) and Goldstream Provincial Park (in Langford). Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at The Butchart Gardens, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Victoria Bug Zoo, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and examine the collection at Victoria Butterfly Gardens.
