The waterfall capital of the world, Hamilton has over 100 waterfalls minutes away from the downtown core. In addition to the city's own wonderous waterfalls, Hamilton is the gateway to Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake. Familiarly known as a 'wonder of the world' Niagara Falls is a destination not to be missed. The falls themselves are breathtakingly beautiful (and powerful!) and the surrounding city is a tourism mecca with casinos, fun parks, museums, and more. Just down the road from the falls, visitors can unwind in Ontario's most prominent wine country, Niagara on the Lake. This charming town is settled amongst numerous beautiful vineyards.
The city is also booming with arts and culture with multiple performing arts venues and the third-largest public art gallery in Ontario. An attraction not to be missed is the African Lion Safari where you can take a drive through a 750 acres Wildlife Park.
It’s also a short drive, bus or train ride to Toronto along Lake Ontario, where there is even more to explore – from endless shopping & dining opportunities to world-class concerts & sporting events!
