Things To Do in Muskoka
Whether you’re a cottager or a vacationer – or even live here year-round – you’ll find no end of fun things to do in Muskoka
Muskoka Ontario certainly has a lot going for it. Not only is it one of Canada‘s top places for outdoors adventure – largely thanks to its proximity to Algonquin Provincial Park – it also boasts more fun things to do than most vacation destinations of its size.
Whether your idea of a great time is exploring Muskoka by land – cottage country is crisscrossed by countless great hiking and biking trails – or by exploring its endless rivers and lakes by canoe or kayak, you’ll never run exciting experiences in this region of outstanding natural beauty.
Even if you prefer the tamer (but equally stunning) scenery of a golf course, you’re spoiled for choice. Muskoka offers some of the very best golfing experiences to be had anywhere, with some 30 courses taking full advantage of the region’s rugged natural setting as a backdrop.
Things To Do on Muskoka’s Lakes
Many of the top things to do in Muskoka can be enjoyed in and around the Muskoka Lakes area. Those seeking exciting water-based activities such as kayaking and paddle boarding can enjoy participating in the many programs offered by the top luxury Muskoka resorts such as Touchstone Resort and the JW Marriott The Rosseau, Muskoka Resort & Spa, while many of the best marinas offer rentals of jet-skis and boats.
Those seeking cultural pursuits are also taken care of. The Town of Gravenhurst plays host to great music and Canada’s oldest summer theatre festival, while over in Port Carling – the ‘Hub of the Lakes’ – the Muskoka Lakes Museum offers a fascinating look at the region’s rich history.
Fun Things to do All Year-round
There’s plenty of fun things for kids in Muskoka, too. The magic f Christmas is celebrated year-round at Santa’s Village in Bracebridge, while the region’s many summer camps, including Muskoka Woods and Camp Muskoka, offer unforgettable outdoor experiences for youngsters.
Add to this impressive list North America’s oldest still-operating steamship, the RMS Segwun, the natural wonders of the region’s many waterfalls and parks, and other attractions such as Muskoka Heritage Place, a pioneer village attraction in Huntsville, and there’s little wonder that Muskoka is such a big draw for cottagers and visitors alike.
