Cambridge is a wonderful place! Our distinctive 19th century architecture has been used in films and on TV. We have a butterfly conservatory, a drive-through wildlife park, and the third oldest farmer's market in the country. Our trail system and access to the Grand River make for excellent canoeing, cycling, horseback riding and hiking.
