Tri-cities of Waterloo, Kitchener and Cambridge. The 3 cities have a combined population of 500,000. They are attached to each other so it seems like you are in a bigger city when visiting either one. There are many things to do in the area of all 3 cities. We are very central to most of southern Ontario so getting to places is easy driving without all the fast pace of Toronto.
We are situated near a river where fishing is permitted as well as a nice area to relax or have a picnic. We are near parks and trails for walking and outdoor activities. The City is a university city with 2 world class schools and a community college. There are lots of restaurants and outdoor patios in the summer. We are 1 hour from the provincial capital, Toronto and 1.5 hours from Niagara Falls and fresh water beaches. The world famous Stratford Festival is only 35 minutes away and an easy drive. There are museums, a national historic site and a very large farmers market all nearby. (less than 10 minutes). We are on the transit system with the closest stop a 5 minute walk. Waterloo is very accessible so getting around is very easy.

Hello from Canada. I am a 60 year old retired Fire Officer and enjoy travel and meeting new people. My wife Janice, is also retired but does return to her nursing job from time to time to cover shortage at the hospital. We have travelled Coast to Coast in Canada, The east and west coasts of the US and some of Europe destinations. (Mostly Ireland but also the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Italy and touch France). We sometimes travel with my brother(s) and their wives but mostly just two or 4 of us. I like most sports along with doing walking tours and enjoying cultural events. Janice likes to try food tours, walking tours and cultural events. We like the visiting cities and taking in the history. Sometimes it is just nice to relax someplace new while reading or getting to know an area. I don't feel we are jet setters and enjoy more relaxed situations with regard to home locations. I like the off the beaten path types of accommodations as long as things are very clean and well equipped. I am a fussy eater so I enjoy making meals with local ingredients so I like areas with fresh markets. Janice will try most things so I do the cooking. We also like to try to get to local wineries, breweries or distilleries. It lets us be adventurous while enjoying local beverages. I also like to drive and get around in the car so having a home with a vehicle available would be advantageous to us. We have a home and a Condo in the city of Waterloo, Ontario Canada. We would like to exchange homes but can make our condo available with notice.
