The zoo is wonderful if you want to go for a stroll and enjoy visiting the animals. Channel your inner child and try out the Super Slide. Wander down to the water front and enjoy a scenic picnic lunch. Try our the disc golf course while your enjoy the fresh air. Did I mention that the zoo is available free of charge?

There are a lot of great yoga studios in Peterborough but as a member of HYP I highly recommend this one. It's warm, inviting and there are classes for all levels. I often have class passes available that you can use for a free class while you visit.

Axe throwing is a lot of fun and it's worth a try if you've never done it. The Peterborough Axe Club offers walk-ins most nights but it's worth the call a head to make sure .

You can walk to this store in about 15 minutes or drive there in about 5. It's not the largest grocery store in the area but it does offer a selection of locally sourced goods, so keep your eyes open for that!

For when you want a nice wine to pair with your meal. The nearest LCBO has a new location in Portage Place so the selection is much improved. It's a walkable distance if the weather is nice and the staff is great!

Shopping

If you want to do some shopping, downtown Peterborough offers the best shopping experience if you want something unique. There are too many great shops and boutiques to list and there is something for everyone. George St., Hunter St., Charlotte St. and Water St. offer a fantastic array of stores you won't find in the mall. These stores are filled with items curated by shop owners who know what they're doing!

Food Scene

The gem is a popular spot on the water front downtown. Only open spring to fall, it's a beautiful spot to sit outside and enjoy a great cup of coffee and delicious food.

This tiny little spot doesn't look like much from the outside but it's a popular spot with the locals. They typically offer 6+ different, freshly made soups daily as well as salads and sandwiches. The small soup is usually enough to satisfy any appetite and you can enjoy a fresh, hot soup with beer bread (the beer bread is highly recommended) for under $10! If you go at noon hour you probably won't get a place to sit, but the takeout is good option.
