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.

Learn more about Legault’s trip to Hamilton and his comprehensive guide to sightseeing in this “city of culture” – click here to read the full article.

Read more about this up and coming city and see for yourself why everyone is buzzing about “The Hammer”.
