Hotels in Hamilton

A port city on the western tip of Lake Ontario near Niagara Escarpment, Hamilton is surrounded by diverse natural beauty. Many waterfalls, scenic forests, and dramatic lookouts are all located just minutes from the city centre, so much so that the city is nicknamed "The City of Waterfalls". Once the central hub of Canada's steel industry, Hamilton's revitalized downtown core is surprisingly cosmopolitan. Hip boutiques, trendy bars, independent galleries, and world-class restaurants line the streets, but the city hasn't forgotten its rich history. Hamilton is home to some of Canada's most renowned military history museums and the HMCS Haida, a ship that saw more battles than any other in Canada.

Tourism in Hamilton, Ontario

With a nickname like "The City of Waterfalls", it should come as no surprise that sightseeing is one of the biggest reasons tourists visit Hamilton. Some of Hamilton's most popular and beautiful waterfalls include Webster's Falls, which is over 30m wide, and Tew's Falls, which is almost as tall as Canada's famous Niagara Falls! In the summer, Tew's Falls slows down to just a trickle, so it's best to visit in the spring if you want to see it in full swing.

Hamilton has a massive park system with over 130km of trails to explore. Head to the Waterfront Trail for panoramic views of Hamilton Harbour, or walk toward Princess Point at the edge of Lake Ontario for one of the most beautiful views the city has to offer. Take the Bruce Trail up Niagara Escarpment to Dundas Peak for a great lookout point over the city.

Hamilton also takes pride in their military history museums. You can take a guided tour through Canada's "fightingest ship", the HMCS Haida, or stop by the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. The Battlefield House Museum is a real treat, with actors in period-appropriate clothing and even a war reenactment every June. You won't want to miss it!
