The City of Kawartha Lakes is a bit of a misnomer as it refers to a sprawling municipality covering a large area of rural land with several towns and a number of lakes, many on the Trent Severn system.
|Bobcaygeon – The ‘Hub’ of the Kawarthas
The name “Bobcaygeon” is said to have been derived from the Indian word “Bobcaygewanunk” meaning “shallow rapids”. More recently it has been made famous by lyrics in a song by The Tragically Hip with the opening line:
“It was in Bobcaygeon where I saw the constellations reveal themselves one star at a time”
A visit to Bobcaygeon is enhanced by its beautiful, natural setting. Built on three islands, joined by a series of seven bridges (one being a swing bridge),with Lock 32 of the Trent Severn Waterway System located in the centre of the Village, this is unique place to visit.
Fenelon Falls – the ‘Jewel’ of the Kawarthas
Fancy some antiquing, or a stroll along the waterfront watching big and small vessels pass through the locks on the Trent Severn Canal?
Or perhaps a warming drink in a unique café before exploring one of the art galleries or local museums. Fenelon Falls is a great place for a visit at any time of the year.
