Lindsay Hotels

Nestled in a bend of the Scugog River which connects 2 lakes, Lindsay is the gateway to Ontario’s Kawartha Lakes region. With a broad and bustling Main Street, full of cultural exhibits and independent shops, it’s not hard to imagine the days when it was horses and steamboats rather than cars and motorboats which brought this place to life. With its friendly atmosphere and outdoor living, it’s ideal for a family vacation, with attractions to suit sports fans and culture-lovers alike.

Things to see

Historic Lindsay’s generously-proportioned Main Street gives it a sense of old-world grandeur, and there’s obvious local pride in the independent businesses which have been trading here for years. At one end is the impressive, red-brick Academy Theatre, which has been playing to audiences for well over 100 years. Its plush, scarlet interior epitomizes theatrical glamour. Nowadays, it’s puts on shows full of razzle-dazzle, so go in the evening for a sing-along spectacular. Art lovers should head to the nearby Lindsay Gallery, where a bright, eclectic collection of artworks are on show, with lots of inspiration taken from the local scenery. It also hosts touring international exhibits. The boutique sells original works of art, from sculpture and woodwork to painting. Need a fun day for the whole family? Head to Lindsay 500, an outdoor entertainment complex where you can race each other on the go-karts, or enjoy a round of mini-golf.
