Peterborough - Ontario

Peterborough, Ontario, is located between Ottawa and Toronto on Little Lake and the Otonabee River, part of the Kawarthas region. Nicknamed “Electric City” because it was the first Canadian town to use electric streetlights, Peterborough is home to the Summer Festival of Lights, as well as a variety of theatres, programs, and lectures.

History and local culture come together in Peterborough. The Victoria Museum has Ontario’s second oldest collection, while other museums feature canoes, kayaks, and many local artifacts. Maple syrup festivals, sugar bush tours, and other special events help show how Peterborough came to be the unique place it now is.

Some of Peterborough’s main attractions lie on the Trent-Severn Waterway. With the world’s highest hydraulic lift lock and opportunities for boating and fishing, the waterway can provide hours of outdoor activities for everyone. For history, culture, and distinctive features, Peterborough is a fascinating travel destination.
