Durham Region Feature: Fun Things To Do This Summer

You don't have to leave Durham Region to have fun, that's why we put this list together of places to go and things to try!

1. Salmon Fishing

Fish 'n' Fun Salmon Fishing Charters leaves from the Port Whitby Marina and you get to fish Lake Ontario. Best part--you get to keep your catch!

2. Paintball

Located on Coates Rd on the Oshawa/Port Perry border, Sector 57 Paintball has 3 different fields where you can play in a private rental, or with giant group of people! Take the kids for a birthday party, or relieve some work stress with this really fun and active activity!

3. Jungle Cat World

Lions and tigers and Leopards, oh my! These guys and many more are right in your backyard (well, Orono). Take the kids to Jungle Cat World and see the 31 kinds of mammals, 12 kinds birds, 11 kinds of reptiles, and 7 different invertebrates! 

4. Geocaching

Geocaching is the modern day treasure hunt! Search for thousands of caches outdoors all around the Durham Region with the Geocaching app or, if you're feeling adventurous, hide your own and leave your trail behind! Best part--it's  FREE and you'll find a new way to enjoy the outdoors all year round. 

5. Ziplining

Feeling brave? At Tree Top Eco Adventure Park you can try out a high ropes course, do some ziplining, and a new combat archery field!

6. Paint your own Pottery

Ever wanted to recreate that famous scene from Ghost? In Oshawa, you can! At Ceramics Canada, you can make your own pottery, they'll fire it, and then you can come back and paint it! You can also do clay hand building and glass fusing! Fun for the whole family.

7. Outdoor Laser Tag

Paintball a little messy and painful for you? Well try this alternative! Traditionally, laser tag is played indoors, however at Action Adventure Games, you can play this mess-free fun and active game outside in Bowmanville!
