The Radisson hotel lies in the heart of this area, which boasts a growing tech community with companies like Christie Digital, Google, BlackBerry, D2L, Sandvine and OpenText. On vacation or need a break from meetings? Try Kitchener's many outdoor activities, such as skiing and snowboarding in the winter and water rides, canoeing, tubing and zip-lining during the summer.
