Port Perry Vacations
Port Perry is a great place to stay while you are exploring Oshawa as some of the city’s star attractions are within easy driving distance. Two destinations that should be on every visitor’s list is the fascinating Darlington Sports Centre and the much-loved Garnett B. Richard Recreation Complex. Two other great attractions you’ll find within a short distance of Port Perry are Bowmanville Museum and the Jungle Cat World Zoo.
Do make the effort to see some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make this region such a unique vacation destination. Head to the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, to get your fill of art.
If the weather is good, do what the locals do and head outside to the nearby parks and reserves. Nature lovers love to hang out in places like the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens. There is a relaxed atmosphere here and pretty garden beds and trees.
Go to Oshawa Centre to scratch that shopping itch.
Oshawa is the home turf of the legendary Oshawa Generals ice hockey team in winter and Durham Turfdogs indoor lacrosse team in autumn. Both teams compete in regular games at General Motors Centre. Even if there is no game on, you can still come to the stadium at one of the many musical spectacles staged here.
To really get to know this fascinating part of the world, consider booking a room at one of the area’s charming bed and breakfast or hotel options. Make reservations for the Hilton Garden Inn Toronto/Ajax, the Travelodge Oshawa Whitby, or the Best Western Plus Durham Hotel & Conference Centre.
