How do you take your lake? Gorgeously “Great” with a healthy dose of summer evening sunsets? Small and serene with a sweet little rowboat and a fishing pole on the side? Perhaps you prefer to switch things up every now and then with an afternoon float down one of Canada’s most storied rivers. Whatever type of shoreline serenity you seek, you’ll find it in Hamilton Halton Brant. Home to Lake Ontario, Christie Lake, Valens Lake, Kelso Lake, Crawford Lake, Pinehurst Lake and the Grand River, there is no shortage of ways to spend a water-filled day here.
