    Drayton Festival Theatres is a treasured resource for people living in and visiting Waterloo Region. We have been to most of the theatres and without exception, have always had a positive, enjoyable experience. The management and actors/vocalists are to be congratulated for always providing outstanding performances and experiences. We're always proud to take visitors from Europe and Vancouver to any of the Drayton productions and they are always impressed!

    This is a beautiful place to go on a chilly day. Because it was sunny when we were there, the butterflies were extremely active! And so many of them!!! Exceeded my expectations for sure. Warm, tropical environment with lots to see. But please, if you're taking young children, keep a close eye that they're not stepping on the butterflies! The young woman that greeted us on arrival and showed us around was fantastic and clearly loved her job.

    This is a small gem of a museum. If you are in the area, definitely it's worth a visit. The collection is really nice, well described and displayed, and is a quick visit to experience, so not a huge commitment of time. I think for anyone who is interested in fashion or fashion history, this is a great place to seek out. Overall, I found this to be great museum and a nice find during a visit to the area.

    Galt was illuminated with Winterfest installations making it a memerizing experience. There were about 30 installations to be enjoyed and it was just superb. One of the installations we enjoyed most was right in front of the bridge.

    Road cyclists should be mindful of gravel. We started from Cambridge where the gravel was smoother but it became more close to Paris.

    At Paris, we stopped at the lookout spot by the dam which was breathtaking and had a quick tour in the small and cozy town of Paris.

    Part of the area museum system,. McDougall Cottage is a small original stone cottage on the Grand River. Inside is small and well preserved, outdoors has a small but interesting garden. McDougall Cottage hosts a variety of special events, from the tiny quilt contest to the strawberry tea, to "piping down the sun".

    A great park for everyone. Play areas, sports areas, picnic areas and super nature hikes. Sit by the river or walk the boardwalk. Watch all the wildlife.

    Small little park alongside Grand River. The trail is small but views of Grand river are just grand. Views of downtown, grand river wont disappoint you. Must see if you are in Cambridge.

    It's hard to write about a place that no longer exists! It was one of the best microbreweries anywhere. Their Plowman's Ale, Millrace Dark, and longer ago, the Enigma Black Lager were among the finest beers you could find. The staff were friendly and knowledgable and the regular visits to refill the growlers were always a pleasure. When Magnotta bought the brewery the operation seemed to improve, but they closed it suddenly, saying that the brewing was moving to another location and that the beers would be available through the LCBO and their own store. The best ones have vanished and the LCBO no longer carries any. A sad loss of an excellent, popular and well respected brewery.

    Note: the date given below is a "plug", as the actual date s not available.

    This park features an arena,soccer fields,ball fields,a small campground with a dumping station, a small duckpond with a mill wheel, a large children's playground along with a pretty good spray-pad. There are some animal pens which are mostly empty now there may still be peacocks I am not sure. This park has a city made outdoor rink in one of the parking lots. it also has some of the best sledding hills in the city with safe run off area for the kids but be ready to do a lot of climbing. A safe park in the daytime but be aware of the fact that there have been a few complaints of coyote's in the last couple of summers.

    I go to Settlers Fork where the Grand and Speed Rivers meet. Ther is a walking trail with benches to sit and watch the slow moving rivers with lots of wild life.
