There are many things to do in the nearby towns of Minden, Halburton, Kinmount and Dorset.
Bev and I like to visit the town of Dorset every now and them for it is a cute town, right on the waters of Lake of Bays. Bev loves to shop and into Robinson's General store she goes. The store has everything from food to clothing to gifts to hardware items. A good old style General Store.
I like to go and check on the restoration of the bigwin steamship (www.bigwinsteamboat.com).
The towns of Minden and Haliburton have all the essentials of life, drugs, alcohol, food and a hospital. Just like the city. If you are a coinsure of ice cream go to Kawartha Dairy (www.kawarthadairy.com) in the town of Minden for the best tasting and very generous portions, a meal unto itself.
The town of Kinmount that hardly ever changes has the most unique threatre going for it, the Highlands Cinemas (www.highlandscinemas.com) It is a museum of movies for the movie buff. Can't beat it anywhere, it has character, first off park amongst the trees, no asphalt here, the theatre is in a house, five screens, memorabilia galore and first run movies.
