An actual independantly owned music store straight out of back in the day. This place well rocks! It sells new and used music, dvd's, t-shirts, music books and bio's, local concert tickets and posters. You could literally spend hours here perusing the selection that is all neatly chaotic in this hole in the wall gem.

Homer Watson Park, which is located along the western edge of the Grand River in Kitchener, is a beautiful hiking area with great views of the river below. There is a main, paved trail that goes directly through the park and that does not in fact have views of the river. The other paths, which are essentially carved out by hikers, provide nice views and the opportunity to enjoy the flora and fauna of the area. There are plenty of frogs, squirrels and birds for all to enjoy. Hikers should be aware that the area can be dangerous after heavy rain falls, as some of the paths are actually gulleys that become slick with silt after storms. I've skidded down one once, luckily with only dirty clothes to show for it.
Equipment: Good shoes, an umbrella and bug spray for the summer.

Favorite thing: KW stands for Kitchener-Waterloo, as the cities are really intertwined.. You will be in Kitchener if you are Downtown, and Waterloo if you are Uptown. Both of these areas have had recent face lifts, to make them very appealling for window shopping.
KW is an hour from Toronto and an hour from London. About 30 mins from Stratford and 15 mins from St Jacobs. This means you have lots of options.
There is a very international flavour due to the College [Conestoga] and Universities [Wilfred Laurier and U of Waterloo], but come October, everyone is German. Kitchener was called Berlin, but the name was changed in 1916. I won't even get into the politics of that.
KW boasts the second largest Octoberfest in the world, and it gets bigger every year. There is something for everyone, including Rocktober and Dogtober.
One of my favourite things about KW is the fact that we are so close to so many things. You can be a tourist in your own city. I still wave to the mennonite children in the buggies, and marvel at the horse stalls at Walmart.
