Living in Cambridge
Up and coming, charming and full of character are all words we’d use to describe Cambridge. And we can guarantee we’re not alone. That’s because Cambridge has a rich history which is still present around the city today and in recent years has caught the attention of many developers who are now in the midst of constructing new entertainment districts, housing structures and other exciting things— all of which tie the old in with the new. But don’t think this town offers merely small-town charm and history, Cambridge also has all the accessibility and ease of shopping in larger cities. And it’s also a quick jaunt down the 401 and other major highways to larger cities like Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, Hamilton and more.
Located on the Grand and Speed rivers, Cambridge has all the water access a canoer, kayaker or fisher could ever ask for. There are many public boat launches and the rivers offer a peaceful and relaxing outing. You’ll also find over 365 hectares of parks in Cambridge with splash pads, picnic areas, sports fields, walking trails and more. Whether you’re young or old, Cambridge has something to offer everyone when it comes to fun.
And we can’t forget about the many events and festivals that call Cambridge home. Everything from food and drink festivals to local concerts and carnivals make stops in Cambridge every year. For a complete list, check out the city of Cambridge’s events calendar here.
