Teen Tastemakers Around Town


Reading + Entertainment, Be Creative!

  • The Grand River in Downtown Cambridge

Teens, Idea Exchange | June 1, 2021

Is there anything better than reading a good book in the summer sunshine? Summer is finally here, and local teens are reading up a storm and logging all their books to earn points toward the Virtual Teen Tastemakers’ monthly prize draws.

Congratulations to the winner of our second gift card prize, Nadia P, who has earned 330 points and logged 30 books so far! We still have some great gift cards available. If you are interested in signing up for a chance to be our next winner, head over to our ReadSquared site to get started.

In addition to the online contest, we are thrilled to be able to get out of the house, enjoy the fresh air, and explore our beautiful city. This month we asked the Virtual Teen Tastemakers about their favourite places in Cambridge. Charlotte T. says:  

My favourite place in Cambridge is LA Franks. LA Franks is a classic hot dog, burger, ice cream type of place, and is one of the best parts of the summer. Located on Water Street in downtown Galt, eating there is a fun way to spend the afternoon, especially since it’s right next to the Grand River. With friendly staff and outdoor seating, it’s got a great atmosphere—and great food. I especially enjoy the hot dogs, fries, and the ice cream, which comes in many different flavours and styles.

LA Franks is only open in the summer, so make sure to get there sometime this year. Tip: avoid going at lunchtime to avoid the crowds.
