It used to be the case that Toronto was the only place in Ontario where you could get a one-of-a-kind, fresh and deliciously authentic, ‘world-class’ meal along with an enriching cultural experience. People would make a weekend out of it, driving in to the big city for that big city experience. But in the past few years, many cities and small towns throughout Ontario have stepped up to the plate, offering incredible culinary and cultural experiences that have actually forced city slickers to look outside the city limits.
Ontario’s Waterloo Region took a bold step and decided to combine both art and food. 90 minutes west of Toronto, the proactive powers that be recently launched the Art Fresco Public Art Project. The aim: to unify both locals and visitors by showcasing the ever-evolving and ever-enriching travel, food and cultural experiences to be had in this beautifully quaint part of Ontario. And people from just about everywhere have taken notice!
