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.

Waterfalls of Hamilton

Reviewed By Experience_Seeker87 - Palm Bay, United States

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.
