Two Weeks of Summer Left in UpTown

by | Aug 22, 2018 | Blog Posts

August is like the Sunday of summer…

There are still a few days left of summer – get out there and enjoy them! Here are eight fun things to do UpTown while you still have vacation days, homework-free nights and a few bucks left in your pocket.

  • Take your family out biking. The Iron HorseSpurline, and Laurel trails all make their way into the UpTown core and you can try out our new, segregated bike lanes too!
  • Get your “adult” on and check off items from your grocery list for that new summer recipe you’ve been meaning to try at one of our UpTown food stores
  • Learn more about our fair city by strolling along the UpTown Loop – a series of three self-guided walking tours that feature UpTown Waterloo’s history, award-winning architecture (like the Canadian Clay & Glass GalleryCIGI and the Perimeter Institute) and other local points of interest
  • Keep that summer glow going by indulging in one last trip to one of UpTown’s luxurious spas and salons
  • Grab your kids and visit the farm animals and playgrounds at Waterloo Park and later cool off at Lions Lagoon
  • Cash in on end of summer sales at one of over 90 retailers in UpTown Waterloo
  • Check out one of the upcoming Festivals like the Sunlife Financial Waterloo Busker Carnival or sign up a team to participate in our annual UpTown Waterloo Great Oktoberfest Barrel Race
  • Paint the town with your pals or partner – celebrate Summer 2018 with a new, cool tattoo and later hang out on a fabulous patio or go dancing at one of UpTown’s live music venues

There is lots to see and lots to do, in UpTown Waterloo!
