Sightseeing
Only 30 mins away from the cottage, Peterborough is located between two major Canadian cities (Toronto and Ottawa), it has managed to maintain a small-town friendly feel to it. Peterborough with its relaxed atmosphere and laid back attitude allows the days to go by unnoticeably. There is a big arts community in the city also, meaning Peterborough is the best place in Central and Southern Ontario to create a band, become an artist and simply showcase your talent.
