Kinmount Movie Theatre - This movie
theatre is truly astounding. When we started going, it was small and unknown -
not any longer. The owner has been collecting antique movie theatre
paraphernalia for years and has a small museum within the theatre.
Petroglyps Provincial Park - "Deep within a forest
northeast of Peterborough is the largest known concentration of aboriginal
rock carvings in Canada. Carved into the white marble rock face hundreds of
years ago, the 900 petroglyphs depict turtles, snakes, birds, humans and other
images. Hiking trails meander through surrounding forests, wetlands and rocky
Local Art Galleries, including the famous David McIntosh Studios. Well, OK, he's not yet world famous,
but he has the exact same name as your host, which makes for some confusing situations. And his art is
great, but go see for yourself - afterall, beauty is in the eye of the
beholder. (And no, we're not related.)
Local Marinas - There are two marinas in the area that will rent, and deliver, motor boats or just a motor for our aluminium boat.
One is Haliburton RPM, formerly "Roberts Marina". We have been sending tenants there for years and have always had good service.
As of 2012, they are under new ownership (hence the new name), but they are still friendly and still provide the same services.
Book early as they can have all their stock rented out.
Haliburton Forest - Haliburton Forest
and Wild Life Reserve Ltd. is a privately owned forest in Central Ontario's
Haliburton Highlands. Comprising over 50,000 acres of rolling hardwood
forests, pristine lakes, meandering rivers and extensive wetlands, make it a
nature enthusiasts dream. They also have a wonderful late-evening "star gazing" seminar. It is conducted by a very
knowledgeable amateur astronomer, and you get to look through some high-quality telescopes.
Haliburton Highlands Museum - The
museum is situated in Glebe Park on the north shore of Head Lake overlooking
Haliburton Village. It was started by a local committee as a Canadian
Centennial project to commemorate the early pioneers of the area.
Bancroft - Once the "Mineral Capital of
Canada", Bancroft has many old mineral mines. It is still possible to get a tour of some of the mineral quarries and go prospecting for minerals.
