In just under an hour and a half from the Greater Toronto Area, your group can be immersed in the breathtaking beauty of the lake-strewn Kawartha landscape, while enjoying the best of both worlds in the centre of lively downtown Peterborough. Nestled alongside the beautiful Otonabee River—part of the Trent-Severn Waterway—the city of Peterborough punches above its weight with a spectacular dining scene, incredible teambuild- ing pursuits and marvelous scenery. The professional staff at the Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism office have the expertise to make your group visit to the region one to remember. Chef Brad Watt at the Rare Grill House is amazed how long the thriving foodie scene of Peterborough has remained under the radar. This CIC-trained chef was just passing through in 2001 for a month, started cooking and never left. As with many chefs in the area who share his passion, Brad prides himself on sourcing the best ingredients from local farms. The restaurant is available for buy-outs and seats 40 people. The Peterborough region boasts almost 375 restau- rants, lounges and cafes featuring international cuisine from around the world. In peak season, visitors can find a farmers' market almost every day of the week, including the Peterborough Farmers' Market on Saturday that has been operating since 1825. The market scene is a popular pre-conference activity. The lively Hunter Street café scene offers up a variety of choice for dining. You may want to explore the region's chip truck trail or Butter Tart tour—for either a sweet or savoury endeavour. Farm to Table Downtown Culinary Tours sample the bounty of local microbrewers, bakers, restaurants and independent producers committed to the best in seasonal artisanal produce. Tours depart from the Peterborough (Wednesday) Downtown Farmers' Market and run from June through September. DOWNTOWN PETERBOROUGH HOLIDAY INN— RIVERSIDE GRILL & GAZEBO
