When my kids were little trips to Grandma’s house was a very long 15 hour drive to Toronto Ontario Canada. A few years ago my family moved to Cambridge Ontario which is a small town about an hour west of Toronto. Cambridge was a bit of an adjustment as it is a small town with a population of only 120,000 people while the Greater Toronto area has a population of 5.5 million people.
Cambridge Ontario became a city in 1973, when the City of Galt, Towns of Preston and Hespeler, and the hamlet of Blair were joined together. It is a quaint area full of historic charm, natural beauty and all the convenience of a modern growing city.
For me the main attraction in Cambridge is my family but I love to visit this unique city and photograph the beautiful buildings and Churches as well as the Speed river and Grand river that flows thru the city. This is a great city to take a photo walking tour especially the areas of Hespeler and Galt around the river. Here are a few of the photos I have taken of this beautiful city of Cambridge Ontario.
