Do some cultural sightseeing at Via Italia and Mackenzie Hall. Step off the beaten path and head to Seven Lakes Championship Golf and Reaume Park.

And it doesn't end there: tee off at Ambassador Golf Club, take in nature's colorful creations at Bert Weeks Memorial Gardens, look for all kinds of wild species at Peche Island, and explore the galleries of Walkerville Artist Co-op.
