Although I didn’t grow up in Kitchener-Waterloo I’ve been here ever since the University of Waterloo drew me out of high school, and I loved it so much, I just never left.  Centrally located in the middle of the province, it’s an ideal location that is only a short drive to most anywhere but offers everything I need in a smaller sized city.  After marrying a Kitchener boy nearly twenty years ago, I now call this home and I’d love to share just a few of the fantastic places I’ve discovered.

market

Best Saturday Outing – We are blessed to have not one, but two wonderful farmer’s markets in Kitchener Waterloo. Depending on your mood, you can try more quaint Kitchener  Market or if you up for some serious shopping and crowds, venture out to the much larger St Jacobs one and a full-fledged Mennonite , flea market, artisians and outlet mall shopping experience. Both offer fabulous fresh produce, meat breads and cheese and tasty treats to satisfy every taste. Fresh apple fritters – yum!

MelsDIner

Favorite Family Restaurant – The entire family agrees that a trip to Moose Winooskis is a good time for all. Great atmosphere and yummy food, including some of the best wings in town make for a nice night out.  The family birthday tradition is to wear the Moose Antlers and spin the wheel and pray you don’t land on ‘Pie in the face!’

grandriver

Best Family Thing to do on a Sunday – Our busy family enjoys unplugging and taking a hike along the peaceful and scenic Grand River on any one of the many hiking trails in the Walter Bean Trail System. We especially like the one down by the bridge close to Breslau off Victoria Street.  Watch canoes and kayaks going by, see what the fishermen are catching that day and if you are lucky, spot hawks and maybe even an owl one one of our trips.

Rangers Logo

Favourite Friday Night Event – From September to March, Friday night is game night for the Kitchener Rangers at The Auditorium. Hockey fans from Rangers Nation converge upon the building to take part in what has become a rousing Friday night tradition.  The arena is sold out almost every game as dedicated fans create a virtual sea of red white and blue with jerseys and apparel, showing their undying adoration to their home team. Win or lose, KW loves their hockey and loves their Rangers and fans enjoy showing their support in this Friday night tradition where fans of all ages socialize and enjoy a good night out.

kitblues

Favorite Local Event – The Kitchener Blues Festival is a must attend festival for my husband every August. Every year we discover more great musical acts and get to hear some of the best Blues musicians around. Nothing like soaking up some hot summer rays, listening to some blues and sipping a nice cold one on the outdoor patio at City Hall. Oh and did I mention is FREE. Wow..

Favourite FREE Fun for Kids – The Kitchener Public Library offers incredible free fun for kids of all ages and we are regulars at many of their programs year round. Programs are creative and current and keep kids interested and busy, while teaching them good life skills along the way. Whether is a summer, PA Day diversion or special event like Mine Craft Mania, the staff are friendly and energetic and always make the kids glad they came.

I can’t believe it’s already June and if you haven’t already signed your child up for some fun summer camp experiences, don’ t delay! Many are almost at capacity so do it now before it’s too late. As a mom of three, I know from experience that summer camps offer amazing opportunities for children to try new and exciting things. I love the opportunities for personal growth, independence, confidence and the new friends and great memories they will keep forever. I am going to focus on the Inter Varsity Camp closest geographically to my home, the Circle Square Ranch in Brantford, Ontario. This camp is easy access to anyone living in southern Ontario and even from Toronto GTA is an easy hour long drive.
