Take It Outside

Hamilton’s Conservation Areas are an ideal destination for a hit of fresh air and fall colour. In addition to a network of fantastic hiking and biking trails, Christie Lake features an 18-hole disc golf course that winds its way through fields and forests. Eramosa Karst’s underground caves and streams, meadows and forests make it a perfect escape for an afternoon of exploring.

Do Something Unexpected

Hamilton hosts the 108th Grey Cup in December, so this fall is a great time to catch a game and get a feel for the incredible excitement that erupts from Tim Hortons Field.  The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have home games on September 6 against Toronto, September 17 against Calgary, October 2 against Montreal, October 23 against Ottawa, November 2 against BC, and November 20 against Saskatchewan.

Stock The Trunk With Fall Flavours

Take a little detour just beyond Hamilton’s borders to find the freshest produce direct from local farms and orchards. Murphy’s Country Produce in Binbrook is a fantastic choice. For one-stop shopping for all things fall on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Hamilton’s huge Farmer’s Market.

Score One-of-a-Kind Finds

Hamilton is a city of very distinctive neighbourhoods. Fans of vintage shopping and interior decorating will love poking around the shops of Ottawa Street. Barton Village is Hamilton’s historic shopping village. Westdale Village is a vibrant, historic neighbourhood  and shopping district with interesting cafes and restaurants. Locke Street is tucked just below the Niagara Escarpment and is brimming with an exciting mixture of shopping and dining.

Downtown Hamilton, including the King West and International Village districts, is the place to be for foodies with a passion for global cuisine, art lovers and avid shoppers. The Concession Street district, which stretches from Upper Wellington Street to Upper Gage Street, is a great destination for a leisurely stroll with a little shopping on the side. For a more intense workout, follow the locals’ lead and walk the stairs that lead up the Niagara Escarpment.

Sip Something New

The Beer Tour Co.’s Hamilton Beer Tour makes getting a taste for Hamilton’s hot craft brew scene easier than ever. Their full-day tour includes a visit to four unique Hamilton craft brewers. You’ll enjoy a flight or pint at each stop, as well as a food pairing at one brewery and a guided tour at one brewery. To create your own tour, explore Hamilton Halton Brant’s True Brew Path.

Settle In For A Tasty Meal

King William Street has earned the title of “Restaurant Row” thanks to a collection of standout dining establishments, including The French, The Diplomat, The Mule, Berkeley North, Undefined and Hambrgr.
