  • Peterborough Memorial Centre
    Harlem Globetrotters Playing Three-on-Five Since forming in the 1920s, the Harlem Globetrotters have continued to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2014 tour, a rotating [roster](http://gr.pn/PHdb6w) of Globetrotter favourites—including three female players—takes to the hardwood each game. Spectators might spot veteran guard [TNT](http://gr.pn/rOe0P4) sharing a behind-the-back pass with dunker [Quake](http://gr.pn/QTIGVh), whose high jump once cleared 7 feet, cruelly dashing his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Globetrotters might also present a study in contrasts with 5-foot-2 [Too Tall](http://gr.pn/PHdmPh) and 7-foot-4 [Stretch](http://gr.pn/1dYrbUt), the team’s tallest member. During each Globetrotters game, youngsters laugh along and witness the jovial jocks performing classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti. To infuse their visits with an extra shot of unpredictability, the Globetrotters also let fans in each city vote on special rules for every game; past rules have included the use of a four-point shot and the installation of a penalty box. Over the years, similar antics have followed the Globetrotters around the world, including to 122 countries and territories and all six continents on which basketballs grow naturally. The Globetrotters’ extensive travels haven’t gone unnoticed: they’re one of the few teams to earn a spot in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as ambassadors of the sport.

  • Lang Pioneer Village Museum
    Without the benefit of planes or cars, 19th-century pioneers trekked to the County of Peterborough, where they built a new life for themselves. Here, they established a number of operations including farms, a cider mill, and a print shop, and today, it?s as if the village never changed. The Lang Pioneer Village Museum re-created the 19th-century town in 1967 to give visitors a glimpse into pioneer life, and more than 25 restored and furnished original structures have been moved as far as 90 miles to lend the outdoor museum authenticity. Among these buildings is the three-story Lang Grist Mill, an 1846-built facility where wheat is still ground into flour every summer. Costumed villagers populate the town, roving past the museum's vegetable gardens, hitching posts, and watering troughs on their way to work. In the various shops, blacksmiths shape metals, carpenters assemble furniture, and printers generate handbills on a 1927 Washington Flatbed Press. Villagers perform crafts such as open-hearth cooking and weaving; in fact, the museum's weaver shop showcases one of the few Jacquard looms on display in North America. Visitors to the museum can interrupt any of the townspeople to find out more about their trade or to lend a hand with chores. The museum even rents out its 1886 schoolhouse to students for a day, replacing their usual teacher with a costumed interpreter who conducts lessons similar to those of a 19th-century classroom.

  • Kawartha Lakes Trout Farm
    Kawartha Lakes Trout Farm is a 90-minute drive northeast of Toronto—just close enough to be convenient and just far enough way to feel like a true escape from city life. The tranquil lake is surrounded by verdant trees, making it a lush backdrop for fly fishing, swimming, paddleboating, or ceremoniously summoning the ghost of Bob Ross. Visitors can picnic at tables on the shore, rounding out their meals with items from the snack bar or the smoked trout sold onsite. After a long day of fishing, carousing on the playground, and tossing horseshoes, anglers can retire to their cozy campsite tent. Kawartha Lakes also offers wintertime ice-fishing adventures, during which guests can keep warm inside a heated hut. The farm additionally hosts ice-skating outings.

  • Milltown Mini Golf
    Established in 1985, Milltown Mini Golf sends visitors putting past fishponds, a working water wheel, and lush gardens. But because the facility sprawls across two acres of land, the family-oriented amusement park doesn't stop at mini golf. When you set down your club, you can pick up a bat in the batting cages; or a paintball gun at the target range; or even an authentic metal detector while hunting for treasures. You can also style your hair inside Milltown's hurricane wind tunnel, or take home a new friend after building a customized teddy bear.

  • Stiebel Golf
    Certified PGA of Canada instructor Justin Stiebel teams up with V1 Video Analysis software to help golfers improve their play through game assessment and customized lessons. A golf coach for more than seven years, Stiebel sharpened his swing while competing on the Canadian and American junior golf circuit before earning a diploma for Professional Golf Management, a degree that instantly gave him the ability to drive a ball through a brick wall. The first lesson kicks off with a brief chat about goals and golfing experience before the student commences firing shots down range as Stiebel analyzes swings and dispenses advice aided by a video camera that records mechanics. Toward the end of the lesson, student and coach review recorded swings using V1 Video Analysis software, which helps the student identify mechanical flaws and understand why people keep suggesting a haircut.
