Hamilton

4
Steeltown
As a major hub of Canada's steel industry, Hamilton remains off the radar for most tourists, though it hosts a slew of vibrant autumn fairs and provides an ideal stop on the way to Niagara Falls. Surrounded by photogenic nature, the city offers an abundance of outdoor activities for travelers savvy enough to pause here for more than a few hours. A holiday in Hamilton allows you to explore a destination free of tourist crowds, with scenic waterfalls, farms, orchards, and vineyards just a short drive away from good eateries and cozy hotels. Add Hamilton and other destinations in Canada to your travel itinerary using our Canada trip maker.
