Hamilton

The port city of Hamilton is located on the western tip of Lake Ontario and has earned itself a number of interesting nicknames including the ‘Ambitious City’, ‘The Hammer’ and with 130 waterfalls across the city, the ‘Waterfall Capital of the World.’ A leading industrial centre, Hamilton has long been known for its iron and steel works. But more and more, Hamilton is taking its rightful place as a unique urban centre with a vibrant arts scene. Home to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum, Hamilton Place performance art centre, Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, Royal Botanical Gardens, The Art Gallery of Hamilton is an attractive destination for locals, day-trippers and weekend warriors.
