3 Things to Do in The Kawarthas When You’re Not on the Water

Back to Home
A cottage getaway for a weekend is incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating. It’s also a great place if you want to fully unplug from technology. But the question becomes, what do you do to preoccupy yourself without the electronic crutch to which you’ve become accustomed? This can especially difficult if you’re bringing your family along. Boating activities, from fishing to just relaxing on the water are the most popular choices, but you can’t be on the water all the time. Thankfully, there are plenty of activities both indoors and outdoors in the nearby area to keep you and your family excited about the getaway.

1.Take a spa day.

There is nothing more relaxing than taking a day off from all of your worries and stress and indulging in a spa day. It could be a day just for you, a girls day out, or a couples massage. Euphoria Wellness Spa offers a wide variety of services to make you feel relaxed, refreshed, and renewed.

2.Admire some art – and maybe even purchase some.

If you’re an art aficionado, Peterborough has a number of art galleries that will surely pique your interest. The Art Gallery of Peterborough is a public gallery filled with contemporary Canadian Art in a wide variety of exhibitions. If you want to get more involved than just looking at artwork, you can also attend a lecture or an art class.

Galerie Q exhibits collections of art both from classic French Canadian Masters and up-and-coming artists whose works you can purchase. Like the Art Gallery of Peterborough, Galerie Q also hosts a number of programs that you could see to get a more in depth look at the artists’ creative process.

3. Activities the entire family can enjoy.

Have teenagers complaining about being bored at the cottage? Take them to the Escape Maze, where your family will be locked in a room and given 45 minutes to find the key to escape in order to win. This uniquely competitive and interactive experience is one that won’t soon be forgotten.

The Peterborough Memorial Centre hosts a number of sports contests and music concerts, along with other shows and events that can interest the whole family. And for younger children, the Indian River Reptile Zoo features many unique reptilian species for the animal lovers of the family.

The Kawarthas is a fantastic place for the water lover and the plain old lover of fun. Check out these activities and many more on your next trip to the area.
