Where the "jock strap" and the wire coat hanger were invented, it was in Guelph that the now international term "hat trick" was first uttered. It came about by the Biltmore Hat Company insisting that the fans throw their hats onto the ice rink when the local hockey team, the Baltimore Mad Hatters, scored 3 goals. Sitting in the southwestern part of Ontario, Guelph is also known as "The Royal City". It is considered to be one of the best places to live in Canada due to its low crime and unemployment rates. A vibrant cosmopolitan town, there are plenty of architectural treats to see and museums to meander around.
If you need to pay penance or just want to be awed by some architecture, head to the Gothic Revival styled Church of our Lady Immaculate constructed in the 1880s and a National Historic Site of Canada that is a Pope approved basilica. If your prayers aren't answered here, then go to the Royal City Church or St George's Church and have another go. This is the town that cares about its four legged creatures of all types, as there is The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada for abandoned or ill-treated donkeys, mules and hinnies. You can take in a game of Guelph Storm hockey and do some cheering for the home team or watch a performing art performance at the River Run Center.
Go exploring downtown where you can shop until your heart's content and indulge in some time out at a cafe or restaurant. Meander around the Farmers' Market on a Saturday morning where food lovers get together to fossick amongst the fresh produce for sale and have been doing so for over 180 years. Guelph's Market Square, the original site of the markets from the 1800s is the best place to hang out and mingle with some locals. Quebec Street is the iconic historical walk that is now a shopping mecca, but still worth visiting even if you are not a shopaholic, for the architecture alone. History buffs can head to the Guelph Civic Museum or the McCrae House for a lesson or two.
If all the above fails to intrigue, then head to the Royal City Brewing Company and knock back a few.
