Known as the cultural capital of Canada, Stratford is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. If you love theatre, music, amazing food, and natural and historical beauty, Stratford will set the perfect tone for your weekend away.
Experience World-Class Music and Theatre
Stratford is named after the place where William Shakespeare was born for good reason. Home to the Stratford Festival – North America’s largest classical theatre showcase – this picturesque town is celebrated by seasoned theatre-goers from across Ontario and far beyond.
The 2018 Festival playbill is already available, and there is a show suitable for everyone: from the very sassy Rocky Horror Show to the tumultuous Tempest, you and your loved one can visit again and again to enjoy some truly exceptional recreations of time’s most beloved theatrical performances.
When you visit Stratford, don’t be surprised to happen upon countless live musical acts around every corner. Professional street performers and expert players fill the walkways with a wide variety of ear-pleasing melodies. If you’re a music lover, be sure to catch several wonderful performances at the Summer Music Festival that takes place throughout July and August.
Wine & Dine with the Best
Stratford offers countless places where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner, and many of these hotspots are on the main strip or within walking distance of it. Discover one-of-a-kind cafes where you can indulge in an elevated coffee – free from the interruption of your little ones asking where this or that is.
For a romantic dinner, your choices are endless. If you appreciate charm and unpretentious, but sophisticated, steakhouse fare, try The Parlour Steakhouse where you’ll find a diverse menu that offers comfort foods finessed with culinary excellence.
It’s Difficult to Find a more Beautiful Town
The gardens, Avon River and the families of gorgeous swans that adorn it are not-to-be-missed when visiting Stratford. Stroll hand-in-hand with your partner as you take in the gorgeous Shakespearean Gardens. Walk down the main street to see several heritage buildings and the unique architecture that defines Stratford as an elegant blast from the past.
