    High Street


Stratford is Shakespeare's hometown, where English majors and actors are in seventh heaven, and where the Royal Shakespeare Company — the world's best Shakespeare ensemble — makes the most of its state-of-the-art theater complex. If you'll ever enjoy a Shakespeare performance, it'll be here…even if you flunked English Lit. Shakespeare connection aside, the town's riverside and half-timbered charm, coupled with its hardworking tourist industry, make Stratford a fun stop.
