We’re excited to announce a phase two of the See yoU in Guelph, a promotion between Visit Guelph and our partner accommodations. When you book a two night stay (or more!) between now and August 1, for stays between now and October 10, you’ll receive a $100 gift card* to use while you explore all that Guelph has to offer.

In order to help you plan a quick weekend getaway, we’ve put together a few things for you to check out while you’re here.

Where to Stay

Need a spot that is pet friendly? You’ll want to book with the Holiday Inn Express, the Delta Guelph Hotel & Conference Centre, or Norfolk Guest House. Prefer a pool? Check out The Fairfield Inn & Suites or the Hampton Inn!

See You on the Patios!

Downtown is full of patios this time of year and is a jewel in our summer time crown. With over 50 restaurants and bars participating in our seasonal patio program, we recommend you plan a patio tour across town. Here in Guelph, we’re known for our local flavours, our impressive list of breweries and distilleries, but also for our downtown views – particularly as the sun sets. And there’s no better place to enjoy those three things than on a patio!

Although hitting up all of our patios may prove to be a challenge – we’re sure you’re up for a few.

See you shopping!

Did you know that Guelph is a must-visit bridal destination? That’s right! Boutique bridal shops welcome visitors every year to our little city. The Modern Bride offers the best views in the city for Instagrammable shots while Sixpence Bridal Studio boasts consignment bridal options for thrifty brides who love a sustainable option. There’s also Creme Couture with haute looks and the Tilted Veil offering one-of-a-kind dresses. Visit them all and you’re sure to find your dream dress in the Royal City – with your $100 Visa card going towards your purchase. For more shopping tips from the shops themselves, check out our blog “Come for the Dress, Get Inspired by the Rest.”

Not getting married any time soon? Check out Woolwich Village, Quebec Street, and our Valentine’s Day thrifting blog post to find all the spots for a weekend shopping trip that suits your style!

See You on the Rivers!

If you’re an active traveler and want to spend some time in a natural urban landscape this summer, look no further than the Speed and Eramosa Rivers! Head out on a canoe or kayak from Speed River Paddling or take to the Speed River and Radial Line Trails to get a new view. If you’re an active bike enthusiast, you may also want to check out the Guelph Off-Road Bicycling Association (GORBA) for trails in and around the city. There’s lots to do in between patio hopping or non-stop shopping that gets you out and about in nature while you’re here.

The Speed River is a great spot to bring or rent a canoe for an afternoon on the water.

See You Soon!

This offer is valid through August 1st, 2022 or while supplies last, so book soon! And don’t forget the Ontario Staycation Tax Credit means that you get $200 back AND the $100 to spend while you’re here.
