We love when visitors to Hamilton Halton Brant discover how easy it is to combine the region’s fascinating history and heritage attractions with amazing outdoor adventures. Katja Wulfers, who blogs at Life in Pleasantville, did just that when she brought her family for a day of boats, big and small. The day started with a tour of the HMCS Haida, Canada’s most decorated war ship and wrapped up with a guided rafting expedition on the Grand River with Blue Heron Rafting.
