At once fluffy and crispy and sweet and savoury, the humble doughnut has made significant strides in Waterloo Region as a delectable and artisanal treat – but one which has never lost its delicious sense of humour and food fun!
Welcome to summertime in Waterloo Region! Time to get the family together and discover all of the fun things that are waiting for you. Whether you’re looking for active adventures or a more relaxed experience, we’ve got you covered. And make sure you’ve got your phone ready for all of the summer selfies you’ll take as you #ExploreWR!
Summer fun starts at Bingemans Big Splash! Big Splash is the area’s largest water park and offers fun and entertainment for kids of all ages. Spend the day in the heated wave pool, zipping down one of the 11 different water slides, or cool off at Spray N Play (a splash pad designed especially for kids). Take your visit to Big Splash to the next level when you reserve one of their private cabanas – and feel like you’re at your own private resort getaway!
No sunshine? No problem! Big Splash is the perfect destination for both outdoor and indoor summer fun!
On site at Bingemans there are lots of activities to choose from, including FunworX with its HUGE GameworX Arcade, Excavation Station (with mini Excavators that guests of all ages can operate), and Ropes Corse. There are also two 18-hole Mini Golf courses, ExcapeworX Escape Rooms, as well as Boston Pizza Kingpin Bowlounge for 10-pin bowling fun. When hunger hits, Big Splash has multiple food options, with Pizza Pizza, Tidal Treats and Canada’s largest Boston Pizza all right on site. You can even have BP delivered right to the Big Splash Patio so you never have to leave the fun! Don’t forget to check Bingemans website for daily web specials.
Homewood Suites Waterloo-St Jacobs has put the kettle on, and invites you to stop by for a uniquely exquisite tea experience!
Inside this beautiful hotel, you’ll will find a serene and modern tea room. It’s the perfect place to treat you and your family to High Tea. (**Wondering why it’s called ‘High Tea’? A possible explanation is that this tea was traditionally eaten while seated at a table; Afternoon Tea was enjoyed while sitting in chairs or on sofas, which are lower. Cool, huh?**). Choose from Homewood’s selection of loose leaf teas (or coffee or juice), and then get ready to enjoy the tower of treats that is part of the experience! Dainty finger sandwiches, scones with fresh fruit preserves and authentic Devon cream, and delectable sweets that include locally sourced macarons, chocolate dipped strawberries, lemon squares and other mini cakes (you’ll want to make sure you have your phone so you can post a picture of this edible art – provided you have enough willpower to not dive right in!). The attentive and welcoming staff at Homewood’s tea room treats each guest like royalty (whether you’re British or not!). It’s a lovely, relaxing way to spend a summer afternoon; and, when you’ve finished your high tea experience, Homewood Suites Waterloo-St. Jacobs is within walking distance of several location attractions (including the St. Jacobs Farmer’s Market and the St Jacobs Country Playhouse), so you can head out and continue exploring the surrounding countryside. To make your High Tea reservations (sorry – no walk-ins for this one), contact Homewood Suites.
