For those who care: This is the hometown of Justin Bieber. But its real claim to fame is the great Stratford Festival, which has grown to become one of the most famous theater festivals in North America. Stratford’s four theaters have put this scenic town on the cultural map. The festival has also triggered the development of fine restaurants, good hotels, and tours for everyone from theater-loving cyclists to history buffs. Additionally, Stratford itself is a charming and pretty place to amble before and after taking in a show.
