Follow wanderer and travel blogger Lindsay Davies on her recent visit to Hamilton where everything indoor was on the agenda, including Dundurn National Historic Site, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology and Royal Botanical Gardens.

While Hamilton may be known as the waterfall capital of the world, the city has so much to offer both outside and indoors! I’m not talking about the usual bowling, rock climbing or those run-of-the-mill activities either. Hey, don’t get me wrong – they’re great and all but these attractions are seriously cool and fun for all ages. Whether you’re looking to stay warm in the winter months or escape a rainy summer day, there’s no shortage of great indoor activities in Hamilton!
