A city of almost a quarter of a million inhabitants sure offers some entertainment. You can bet it really reaches up to the level of the expectations. Here you have a list of 5 top things to do while in Kitchener.
Check out THEMUSEUM
You read that right, THEMUSEUM. This place is as far as possible from your average museum. Science, history, curiosities, and nature, are all combined in an interactive museum. They feature fresh content and relevant exhibits, in a mixture that is perfectly suitable both for adults and children.
Live in the past
Well, not literally, for that is not a good thing to do. But do live in the shoes of our ancestors, at least for a few hours. You can choose between Doon Heritage Village and the Schneider Haus National Historic Site. Or you could just visit both, mostly since they have different exhibits and kind of a different structure.
Have a cold one
Kitchener has loads of craft breweries to choose from. Taste some good and fresh local beer and cider, in welcoming pubs full of cheerful employees. Whenever you feel like having a small break from whatever you are doing, find the nearest craft brewery and ask for their house specialties. You will not regret it.
Connect with nature
Kitchener has a lot of parks and natural areas where you can enjoy a peaceful connection with nature. Stillwaters, trees, hiking paths, and other outdoor gems are there to be discovered. This is probably one of the best ways to relax, and it will help escape the busy lifestyle and the crowded spaces.
Visit the Waterloo Region Museum
The biggest community museum in Waterloo is Ken Seiling. It showcases ”over 12,000 years of history in Waterloo Region”, as the museum describes itself. Impressive exhibits and an authentic history and anthropology lesson are designed for audiences of all ages.
Kitchener is a dynamic and continuously growing community in the Waterloo Region, with plenty of opportunities when it comes to both work and leisure. Given its affordable prices and low unemployment rate, the city is a great place to live in.
