Kitchener

Room Escape Games · Entertainment Centers · Parks
Together with neighboring Cambridge and Waterloo, Kitchener forms the densely populated Tri-Cities metropolitan area boasting a varied dining scene and many historical sites. Most visitors pass through the city on their way to somewhere else, yet taking time to vacation in Kitchener allows you to attend theater plays, shop, stroll though manicured parks, and hop from one eatery to the next without running into big tourist crowds. Perhaps the best time to take a trip to Kitchener is in the autumn, when you can take advantage of pleasant weather and participate in the second largest Oktoberfest outside Germany. Use our Canada vacation website to plan your trip to Kitchener and other destinations in Canada.
