Hamilton has always been credited with having a vibrant arts scene. Toronto’s sky-high real estate prices are driving even more artist, 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 collections of waterfalls, one of Canada’s most beloved football teams, amazing museums and heritage sites and so much more. We can’t wait for you to come and see for yourself why everyone is buzzing about “The Hammer”.

Follow the latest travel guidelines for any community you plan to visit. Check with businesses and places you plan to go to ensure they are open and serving visitors in the way you’re expecting.
