In Perth, nature lovers and outdoor recreationists can get their fill of the great outdoors and all the activities it has to offer. Getting to Perth by car from Toronto takes approximately four hours, and from Ottawa you can arrive in an hour. The town is a great vacation destination year-round with festivals and events taking place in every season. Perth is located in Lanark County, the Maple Syrup Capital of Canada, and you can join visitors and locals to celebrate the Festival of the Maples in April for your fill of maple-flavoured foods and taffy, or stop by in July for the Stewart Park Festival, a 3-day music-themed event that draws more than 20,000 visitors each year.

Visitors to Perth can partake in a variety of activities, from water-centric pastimes such as fishing, boating, canoeing, sailing, and waterskiing, to snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and ice skating in winter months. For a great day trip, rent a boat and travel up the Rideau Canal, Ontario’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the Tay Canal and into the Tay River Basin. This scenic ride is sure to please.

Hikers, walkers, and cyclists should head to Murphy’s Point Provincial Park, where seasonal campsites are also available. For a scenic view worth a few photographs, take the trip to Foley Mountain Conservation Area. There’s also the lovely Perth Wildlife Reserve & Tay Marsh, where birdwatchers can spy the likes of songbirds, ducks, and wild turkeys.

This town is located in Ottawa Valley South
