If it’s been a while since you’ve seen Hamilton, prepare to not believe your eyes. While the city has always been credited with having a vibrant arts scene, Toronto’s sky-high real estate prices are driving even more artists, musicians and chefs out of the city to set up shop in Hamilton. In addition to amazing art, music and food, Hamilton is home to the world’s largest collection of waterfalls, one of Canada’s most beloved football teams, amazing museums and heritage sites and so much more. What are you waiting for? Come see for yourself why everyone is buzzing about “The Hammer”.
