I have always wanted to take a girlfriends trip and this past weekend my dream came true. Thanks for the wonderful Stratford Tourism Alliance, a group of Michigan female bloggers/vloggers and myself were invited to Stratford, Canada for a weekend trip filled with fun, food, shopping and outstanding shows in the theater. You can read this post back to February to know more about all the fabulous ladies with me in this trip. 😉
Named for Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford has grown to become Canada’s premier arts town. In addition to the annual Stratford Festival, performing from April through October, Stratford is always filled with theater, music and visual arts. I have been to Stratford once back in 2015 and loved the preserved 19th-century architecture and acres of parks and gardens. Stratford has also gained a reputation for culinary creativity, showcased at some of the finest restaurants in the country. Oh, just a fun fact about Stratford, this is also where Justin Bieber was born and raised from busking on the steps of the Avon Theatre to becoming one of the most popular pop stars in the world.
This time we had the whole weekend with
There were a total of 6 ladies in our group and the 3.5 hours drive seemed to just fly by while we chatted about many topics. After we had arrived, the wonderful Cathy from Stratford Tourism Alliance, welcomed us at their office. Tourism Alliance (STA) is the leading tourism marketing organization with a mandate to develop and promote “Destination Stratford” and its regional partners. The STA works with hundreds of creative and innovative Stratford and regional businesses to welcome visitors from all over the globe to this exciting and vibrant city.
It was a sunny day and I loved that everything in Stratford was just a few minutes walking
Loving all the details of this Church restaurant.
But first, have a drink! Lol!
Enjoyed this amazing light lunch!
The beautiful Belfry Lounge!
You all know how much I love a bold, colorful but still chic place! There is no way I will miss this opportunity to snap a photo! Lol!
After lunch, we headed to Illume Wellness Spa to experience some personal service and the Salt Room! As Stratford’s newest spa, it is a Scandinavian and green design creating a therapeutic space bringing nature to people. Situated on York Street, a popular shopping must-see.
We also experienced the famous Salt Room. Have you experienced the Salt Therapy Room before? It’s for sure my first one! It’s very simple and relaxing. Just Come. Sit. Be Still. Clear my mind and breathe. Experience the healing benefits Salt Therapy can have on your health. It’s so relaxing and all of us took a nap there. Lol!
Where to go to eat and what shows did we see? You have to come back Friday to read more! 🙂
