Kitchener: What To Do And Where To Go?

Kitchener is usually neglected by a lot of tourists. However, this lesser-known city has a lot to offer. Since it is in close proximity to Toronto, I made it a point to visit this city on my trip to Toronto. Let’s take a look at the things that you should do when you are in Kitchener.

  • Visit the museum

Want to visit a fun museum? The Museum in Kitchener is all about having fun. If you are on a vacation with kids, this is a must-visit. Children can hone their graffiti skills on the wall, make a fort, or create an animation film. The museum holds a permanent and temporary exhibition which makes it more fun to visit.

  • Drink your heart out

Drinking is the most preferred pastime in Kitchener. I visit the world largest Oktoberfest outside Berlin, held in the city. It is called the Bavarian festival and lasts for 9 days. The primary theme of the festival is drinking endless glasses of beer.

  • Travel back in time

I visited Doon Heritage Village to travel back in time. The live history covered in 24 hectares of the area gives you an idea about how life had been like in this area. Take a walk around the village. The staffs are dressed in costumes from those periods and there are barns and other buildings that you can check out. I came across a grocery store, post office, and also a harness shop.

  • Go skiing

Professional or a beginner, you can go skiing when you visit the city of Kitchener. Chicopee Ski Club has eleven runs with different levels. It is open all year round. So, even if I visited during summer time, I could go hiking or mountain biking. You can also play tennis and volleyball here.
