The Niagara Escarpment provides spectacular scenery, with beautiful trails and waterfalls. Visit nearby farms, orchards and vineyards, or plan your trip to coincide with Hamilton's lively fall fairs.

Hamilton’s Creative Arts Centre in the heart of lower Hamilton In the heart of lower Hamilton, this former cotton mill complex built in 1900 is a prime example of adaptive reuse. The former site of the Imperial Cotton Co. has been transformed into a creative industries complex, with space for workshops, studios for artists and office space for creative professionals. Film and TV productions, photographers and special events are also drawn to the building by its unique aesthetic and its historic charm.

Experience a guided tour of this 40-room Italianate-style villa built in the 1830's on Burlington Heights; the former site of a fortified military encampment established by the British in 1813.
Great guided tour of this "castle" - knowledgeable guide and the house was beautifully set up as a museum. We came out with a real understanding of life at the time. Thoroughly recommend!

The last Tribal Destroyer in the world, HMCS HAIDA is Canada’s most famous warship. She inspires countless adults and children and draw visitors from Ontario, across North America and from around the globe. This WWII Tribal Class destroyer is now a floating memorial and naval museum.
This is a great place to spend an hour or two, the staff are super friendly and knowledgeable and some were even sailors on the ship in the past (shoutout to Andy for the navigation lesson). The ship is huge and every time you turn around it seems like there is something new to explore.

After Niagara Falls we wanted to continue our adventures! We came across these waterfalls after a couple minutes of research. You must have a car to get to these places. Also, keep in mind the grass/dirt; it will gets muddy at times. There are some hiking trails if you’re interested. If you stay in Downtown Toronto (on vacation) I highly suggest checking this place out.

One of my favourite stops offered in Doors Open Hamilton! I’d heard about it several times previously but never had the time to make the trip out, until now. I loved the history of the house and the family! Amazing stories to hear. I hope to return for a full tour of the house sometime. Exceeded expectations.
