A favourite of kids, the Ian Elliot and staff at the Different Drummer have a wonderful selection of kids books within their unique space within the century home. Comfortable and to scale for the little ones, the kids really love to lay on the floor while listening to a reading by parents or staff or explore new titles on their own.

Finally zip across Brant Street toward City Hall and pop into the Works for dinner and an old school milkshake served in a mason jar. The family oriented restaurant is full of texture and sounds to captivate the kids and if the weather is right, the garage doors open at the front so that you can feel as though you are sitting right on the street.
