Kitchener, 66mi (107km) west of Toronto, is one of Ontario’s great lesser-known cities, offering all the excitement of a big city while retaining its small-town charm. If you happen to make a trip to this scenic region of the province, be sure to consult this list of the 12 best things to do in this thriving Canadian city.
One of Ontario’s most popular ski centers, Chicopee offers activities for all seasons. During winter, you can ski or participate in other winter adventures, such as snow tubing. The ski hill here is fairly small, with a maximum vertical drop of 200ft (61m) and 11 runs, making it a great place to learn or teach the kids before heading to a larger ski resort. In summer, you can take advantage of 4mi (7km) of bike trails, an 18-hole disc-golf course, outdoor climbing facilities, tennis courts and volleyball courts. Equipment rental is also available.
