Brantford is a small town about an hour west of Toronto. It’s known for being Wayne Gretzky’s hometown. It’s also the town in which I’ve spent 9 of the most informative years of my life. Growing up here, there was not much to do aside from hanging out in the local mall or fast food joints. The minute I finished high school, I could not wait to get out, and I was determined to explore the world. That was 15 years ago (wow, has it been that long?); I’ve changed and Brantford has changed. Coming home this time I wanted to explore the town that I was in such a rush to get out of. Here is a list of things I like about this city in no particular order.
