We know you love Canada, but when was the last time you actually felt your heart really glow? If it’s been too long, it’s time to inspire a little more true patriot love with a trip to Hamilton Halton Brant. Historic sites, hallowed grounds, beautifully preserved homesteads and hands-on heritage activities bring Canada’s past into the present in fun new ways. From hitting the deck of a historic warship to taking a cooking lesson in a stone castle’s servant’s kitchen, this is history that’s anything but textbook!
