    Have some fresh crab while watching the ocean.
    Catch steelhead or salmon in one of the cleanest rivers I've ever seen, the smith.

    Ride or drive the historic Molesworth - Rainbow valley Station rd (closed for winter season because of snow)

    Take a fishing or sightseeing charter boat through the Queen Charlotte Sounds

    Pick 3-4 of the around 60 local export wineries who you have never heard of and get a proper flight tasting of what they specialise in

    There's nothing to do where we live... 45 minutes north of us are these three:

    1. Lake Erie wine trail
    2. Presque Isle
    3. Dinner cruise on Lake Erie

    Pittsburgh is an hour and a half south, lots to do down that way
