We’re more than just a steel-producing city – we’re an energetic, cultural and diverse place to plan your next getaway. Hamilton would like to invite you to spend time here with us. There’s so much to do to keep you and your family busy; check out our diverse group of restaurants; bars and nightlife; and more! Itt’s easy to get here – we’re less than an hour from Toronto and Niagara Falls and Buffalo N.Y.
While visiting, take in some of the unique sights available. Jump on an African Safari where you’ll see lions up-close; visit a well-known historical castle that will take you back into another era; visit our Marine Discovery Centre that’s educational and photograph-worthy, and do not miss out on the famous Hamilton Farmers Market – part of Hamilton’s history since 1837.
Our gardens are full of amazing plants and flowers; our parks welcome you to enjoy a nice day, either by relaxing or being active. We are located on Lake Ontario, so our geography is quite scenic. Sailboats on the harbour, the majestic Skyway Bridge to Toronto, and waterfalls along the escarpment will create lasting pictures in your mind of the wonderful place named Hamilton, Ontario.
