Each of the three cities has a unique history, beginning in the early 1800s. Galt, which is still the largest city in Cambridge, gained an early reputation as an industrial hub with quality goods that reached the far ends of the globe. Preston, on the other hand, became famous for its mining industry, as well as the thermal springs that attracted visitors from the northern United States and Ontario. The smallest town of Hespeler was founded as a colony for Mennonites. It became a bustling industrial community; a title it still enjoys today. Cambridge didn't become a municipality until 1973, although considerable resistance met this merge. Each resident of Cambridge still refers to himself or herself as a person from one of the three cities within Cambridge's borders, and today, each town still has a rivalry against the other.

At present, the city still has its roots in industry, but it's known far more for its cultural events, including rock concerts, parades, and the famous Mill Race Festival. Whether you're here for business or pleasure, you'll love the hotel options available throughout Cambridge.

When to Visit Cambridge, ON

By far, the best time to visit Cambridge is in the summer. From June to August, the temperatures hover around 77 degrees during the day and drop to around 60 degrees in the evening. Not only does this make for an enjoyable outdoor experience, but it also makes the weather great for the festival season. In July, Cambridge hosts the annual Mill Race Festival, which honors the city's European roots through music, dance, food, drink, and art. The city also has the Rock the Mill Music Festival, which takes place in July and brings folk music artists from around North America. All proceeds from the event go to the preservation of the historic mill in town. Make sure to book a hotel well ahead of time, as rooms tend to get expensive and fill quickly.

For the winter sports enthusiast, winter offers a phenomenal time to do some cross-country and downhill skiing. There are several ski resorts within an hour or two of Cambridge that offer skiing for everyone, from beginners to experts. From December to March, ski season is at its peak, so don't hesitate to book or you may miss out on the hotel of your choice. If you don't plan to ski, don't forget that Cambridge averages temperatures below freezing, as well as up to a foot of snow a month throughout the season. Therefore, pack accordingly.

Spring is nonpeak season in Cambridge, as the city thaws from its harsh winter. If you're looking for a bargain on a hotel room, this is the ideal time to visit, as there's still plenty to do but without the heavy demand for accommodation. One of the best attractions during this time is the Cambridge Farmers' Market, which opened in 1830 and is Canada's third oldest market. Farmers come from up to 60 miles around to sell some of the freshest meat and produce in the area. Best Health Magazine also ranked this market as one of the top 10 in the country.

Fall is perhaps the most beautiful season in Cambridge, as the foliage changes to vibrant orange, yellow, and brown hues. Temperatures can drop quickly and without warning, so remember to wear layers, especially if you plan to attend the Cambridge Fall Festival. This festival, which has run annually for over 170 years, celebrates fall weather with four days of food, drink, games, rides, and fun for all ages. If you're a bargain hunter, this is another time to pull the trigger on a room to get a steep discount.
