Southwestern Ontario is content to bring you Kitchener, a town that cares about entrepreneurship, invention and education. It's attractive to thousands of businessmen, families and people who are tired of characteristic Northern US downtown spots and welcome a pace change and crave for a tad of atmosphere. They usually get it in Kitchener, minus the disenchantments.
Life is thumping in Kitchener. You will get a taste of this excitement in the least likely places like Bingemans. No, it's not a pub sorry folks but it is a campsite, resort and family playground ensconced in 200 acres of land and 500 campsites that string along the Grand River. You could rent a log cabin too , if you incidentally left the sleeping bags and tents in the other SUV.
Enthusiastic for fresh local produce? Your Kitchener Market will delight the women and children. Spoil the children more and take them to the Waterloo Region Children's Museum, where art and technology are cheerily blended to excite all five senses. Oh boy, don?t miss The Aud. This is Kitchener's pride when it comes to sports and entertainment. It has hosted famous events in curling and other awfully Canadian sports.
Looking for something more quiet and unhurried? Stroll in two of Kitchener's history museums: one is Doon Heritage Crossroads, a simulation revival of an old fashioned hamlet; the other is Joseph Schneider Haus, a miniaturised Mennonite community returning to 1850.
Just want some clean air while the boyfriend slugs it out at a business meeting Kitchener has laid out a web of attractive and intensive trails close to the picturesque Grand Brook.
There's a bit more to Kitchener. The K-W Symphony (which we understand stands for Kitchener-Waterloo) should re-light some inspiration, and the K-W Art Gallery and K-W Tiny Theatre will showcase local and world talent. We heard the Chicopee Ski Club satisfies the needs of both noob and advanced skiers, staffed by pro instructors and snowboard runs. People searching for healthy fun are welcome!
And for visiting Germans in winter, Christkindl Market should re-kindle memories as the holiday kicks off with German cuisine, gewgaws and live entertainment. Relax and have a gluhwein and have a rollicking time. Don?t forget to mark it on your to-do list because this 400-year old practice lasts only four days.
Did any person tell you about Moose Winooski? No, it's not a skiing resort. But it's got the best and juiciest of steaks!
No time for the children to stomp their feet in boredom because SportsWorld is just off road 8 close to the 401. It offers wet and dry rides, mini golf courses, indoor driving range, computer games arcade, Nutty Science kiosk and go kart track. This is where Moose Winooski is housed, by the way. A wonderful family entertainment centre! Stay all day if your heart needs?
