  • Scugog Island Cruises
    Each voyage the MV Woodman takes with Scugog Island Cruises pays tribute to the rich maritime history of the area. The double-decker vessel carries the moniker of an 1850s-era steamship that cruised Lake Scugog for more than 70 years, and the crew recounts tales from bygone days of glamorous lake parties and the time that carp ran for mayor during each sightseeing excursion. Whether they are steering up to 100 passengers for a wedding, birthday shindig, or themed dinner-dance cruise, the trained personnel aim to dip each experience in the colours of the area's rich history.

  • Canadian Automotive Museum
    Since its opening in 1963, the Canadian Automotive Museum has honored the automotive industry by displaying mint-condition vehicles, some of which date back to the beginning of the 20th century. Many of these cars were manufactured in Canada, whereas others come from America or overseas?but each one has a history that educates and entices visitors. Size: 25,000 square feet, enough room to hold more than 60 vehicles plus motorcycles, bicycles, and trucks The Building: a former 1920's car dealership, featuring the original elevator that moved cars from floor to floor when they were too lazy to take the stairs Eye Catcher: the only remaining 1903 Redpath Messenger; built in Kitchener, its original owner was one of the first employees of the famed Canadian car company Don't Miss: Lady Eaton's 1912 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Pro Tip: the museum and gift shop are both cash only, so hit the ATM on your way there

  • Rock Solid Productions
    Curling is in Chad McMullan’s blood. After spending his childhood Sundays watching his parents compete at their favourite Winnipeg rink, Chad carried on the family tradition, notching victories in multiple World Curling Tour outings, two appearances in Canadian national championships, and one imaginary sleepover with the Governor-General over the course of his career. After stints as Executive Director of the World Curling Tour and World Curling Players' Association, Chad brought his icy know-how to Rock Solid Productions, which applies curling’s fundamental team-building qualities to everything from business retreats to beginner’s lessons. The group’s in-school training program introduces curling to 100,000 students each year, helping Chad share his childhood love of the game with the next generation of competitors.

  • Bowmanville Zoo
    Originally founded in 1919 as Bowmanville Zoological Park as a small recreational resort with a swimming pool, cottages, tennis courts, and a small petting zoo. Renamed Bowmanville Zoo in 1964 and under new ownership since 1988, the zoo now hosts more than 300 animals roaming 42 acres of parkland, including birds, reptiles, mammals, and large felines seen on films and television shows such as Animorphs and Peter Benchley?s Amazon. Throughout the week, guests have the opportunity to watch zoo keepers feed the animals, watch live animal presentations in the Animatheatre, or take in attractions such as Splash Bash and horse-drawn carriages.

  • Putting Edge
    Putting Edge's phosphorescent indoor mini golf course challenges putters with a network of greens hindered by glow-in-dark obstacles. Eighteen holes twist and turn throughout a darkened space populated by painted neon trees and glowing statues. A steady stream of upbeat music sets the pace for players as they navigate their way through the incandescent labyrinth to prove to competitors that their putting skills—like the bottom of Lake Michigan and Celine Dion's hair—are untouchable.

  • Meta4 Contemporary Craft Gallery
    As a premier exhibition venue for local artists, META4 Gallery ushers creative-minded crafters of all ages into its ample studio space for active and engaging workshops. Each class is taught by a professional instructor who enthusiastically explains and demonstrates mediums and materials before relinquishing the reins to eager French Post-Impressionists. The class calendar boasts a range of right-brain stimulation, from life drawing and oil painting to ceramics, glass blowing, photography, jewellery making, and more (full-day workshops start at $95; lower-priced classes aren't available with this Groupon). Classes are limited to 10 students to ensure individual attention for every artist, no matter the breadth of their skill level or the length of their Dali mustache. A full day’s artistic output will leave nimble fingers exhausted and discerning corneas punch-drunk, so many classes allow you to pack in the artistic fuel at one of Port Perry’s eateries during a well-deserved lunch break.
