Explore Waterloo Region


In Waterloo Region (Kitchener, Cambridge, Waterloo; and 4 rural townships) urban and rural fuse together into one unique experience. Known as the "Silicon Valley of the North", there's a lot more here than just the tech-folk!

Be the first of your friends to Instagram from unexpected & undiscovered family attractions, outdoor experiences (including canoeing/kayaking on a Canadian Heritage River), and high-calibre music & cultural festivals (think ribs, jazz, buskers, and beyond!)

Waterloo is only a 1-hour drive from Toronto. Or, take the GO Train from Union Station during the week. VIA Rail will take you directly into the heart of the region in Downtown Kitchener, from where you can easily access accommodations (something for every budget), contemporary restaurants, attractions, parks, local breweries, renowned museums and galleries.

Celebrate the 50th KW-Oktoberfest (2nd largest in the world!) with activities for all ages! Visit St. Jacobs Farmers' Market, 10 mins from the urban centre of Waterloo. For more information, read the Explore Waterloo Region Travel Guide here.
