Hard to get a parking place. Clean and nice, old but well kept buildings. Had fun walking down town, lots of stores and restraunts. Not very many vendor's that was disappointing.

I love to watch my girlfriend skate here. She's a figure skater on a higher level. I will be watching her this winter. Very positive place to be around and excellent people to socialize with.

It's alright. Nothing great to say about this. I suppose they hold activities here from time to time that might be interesting but otherwise you could skip this if you have a quick trip to the city.

The Guelph Market Square is a quaint little square with coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, bars, a splash pad in the summer and rink in the winter. It is also away from the grubbier downtown areas which can get a bit seedy and tax your patience....More
