Macpherson House was built in about 1826 in the late Georgian architectural style for Allan Macpherson, a merchant and Napanee’s first postmaster. Many distinguished guests visited the house, including Sir John A. Macdonald. The House is restored to reflect Upper Canadian life in the 1830's.

3.5 seconds. That's all it takes the Porsche GT3 to go from a standstill to 100 kph. At that point, though, the car is nowhere near its full potential. 200 kph and 300 kph pass by in a blur of asphalt, until the engine peaks at 315 kph. It's a feat that makes the term supercar seem like no exaggeration. That Porsche is just one of seven high-speed luxury vehicles in G1Tour's garages. Their other automotive stars boast names like Ferrari, Audi, and Lamborghini, all of which accelerate to speeds worthy of Canada's best race tracks?which is exactly where G1Tour operates. The company hands over the keys and sends customers zipping around closed tracks throughout Quebec and Ontario, including Calabogie Motorsports Park and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. (All that's required is a valid driver's license and a brief training session.) G1Tour also rents its fleet for nights out on the town or afternoons of impressing the city's drive-through workers.

The 18-hole Rock and Roll Golf course caters to the average golfer with play that allows for some challenge, but mainly encourages all members of the family to enjoy their round without too much frustration. Composed mostly of par 3s, the course plays over fairly level terrain scattered with trees and shrubbery, meaning golfers won’t have to adjust their swings to account for wild fluctuations in elevation or distracting mountain search parties. Rock and Roll Golf keeps all players hydrated with complimentary bottled water. After a round, foursomes and families can stick around and use the free picnic area, which features a propane barbecue grill, volleyball net, and basketball hoop.

Within an imposing log cabin in Niagara Falls exists one of the world's only opportunities to be served a steaming hot meal by a singing mountie. Over its nearly two-decade history, Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Theatre has performed for more than 750,000 audience members and earned Niagara Falls Tourism's Attraction of the Year award seven times. The theatre's namesake show puts Canadian pop and traditional songs in the mouths of wacky national characters including Anne of Green Gables, hockey players, and Klondike Kitty. And it isn't the only show on the menu: holiday attractions, themed musical revues, and the occasional Rocky Horror Show pop up on the calendar from time to time. During most shows, the performer/servers whoosh from table to red-checkered table bearing an authentic Canadian feast. Dishes can include French Canadian pea soup, Alberta roast beef, and Manitoba roast chicken, and diners can sample any course they like?they're even welcome to ask for seconds. Maple-chocolate cake typically wraps up the extravaganza and provides an edible lumberjack beard of frosting.

Signature Service: Horseback riding Established: 1998 Reservations/Appointments: Required Staff Size: 2?10 people Average Duration of Services: 1?2 hours Pro Tip: Wear comfortable clothes to ride in, including boots with a heel, and bring a helmet if [you] own one. Q&A with Camilla Willings, Owner/Manager Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better. Many customers look [forward] to the time they spend riding with us as [it's] their chance to escape the stress and business of their daily life. They come to unwind, experience nature, and access their joy. Adding horses to their lives has changed them for the better, they say, and added overall to their quality of life. What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars? Wear pants [that are] comfortable to ride in (thick leggings, for instance) and boots with heels. Bring a helmet if [you] have [one]. Gloves are a good idea, too, lightweight [ones] in summer and warm ones in winter with a good grip. When and how did you first develop a passion for your work? [I] lost two family members to cancer in quick succession, and my horses were what kept me sane and helped me through. Caring for the horses and spending time with them helped me find joy again in life, and [I] wanted to share that with others. The barn is my church, and riding is my mindful practice/yoga. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Many of my adult riding customers are people that felt a deep connection to horses and enjoyed them in their youth [but] then raising families and work got in the way of their horse life. So they are coming back to it as mature individuals wanting to re-access the joy of horses they felt when [they were] younger?a gift to their original selves.

With two 18-hole courses draped over a scenic stretch of Ontario countryside, Oak Hills Golf Club invites duffers to test their swings across rolling, timber-lined fairways. On both courses, constant elevation changes force players to hit toward uphill and downhill targets, and ponds, streams, and trees wielding catchers' mitts wait to snatch errant orbs. The longer of the two, the Highland Course connects across 5,655 yards, including an uphill, 568-yard par 5 that will require three long shots to reach the green in regulation. Though considerably shorter at 5,135 yards, the Glen Course requires more careful play with narrow fairways and traffic cones that carts must slalom in between each hole. The Club also encompasses a 30-stall driving range with grass hitting areas for pre-round warm-ups or casual practice sessions.
