All the world's a stage in Stratford, Ontario, Canada

I absolutely adore the theatre so it's only fitting that I spent my birthday in lovely Stratford, Ontario.

                                                   At the Stratford Festival, loving theater!

All the world's a stage in this beautiful town with an idyllic setting that beckons to all, including William Shakespeare if he were still alive. It's especially alluring from April to October when the Stratford Festival presents play after play and audiences sit back and marvel at the actors and actresses performances. Stratford has an Avon River, it also has the Shakepearean Gardens, and sidewalks meant for walking. It's one of Canada's best places to live and it's one of Canada's best places to visit.

Lodging abounds in Stratford and an authentic way to feel at home is to stay at a bed and breakfast. You can easily walk to the theaters and most of the shops and restaurants are centered around the downtown which makes exploring this lovely city very easy. See a play, have afternoon tea, enjoy a glass of wine, take a river cruise on the Avon River, go shopping, picnic in the Shakespearean Gardens, or check out the nearby farms. There's even buses and trains that take you directly to Toronto from Stratford.

Stratford; beautiful, cultural, stimulating, wholesome, & Shakeperean!

Stratford has food to please all palates; from diners to pubs to French, Indian, and Thai cuisine. Other options to eat are supermarkets. My favorite is 
Sobey's at 581 Huron Street.
