Hamilton – Gastronomic and Historic

Benoit Legault of Montreal’s Le Devoir recently visited Hamilton and raved about the vibrancy of the city.

The travel writer of Canada’s esteemed daily francophone newspaper spent time in Hamilton exploring its culinary and live music scenes, along with beautiful historic sites, “remarkable” museums and bucolic natural settings. Legault suggests that Hamilton has emerged from the shadow of Toronto to compete with Canada’s largest city as a must-see destination.
