Hamilton Halton Brant

With picturesque Lake Ontario to the south, the majestic Niagara Escarpment (an UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve) carving through the region's centre and the tranquil Grand River, a designated Canadian heritage river, meandering leisurely to the west, the Heart of Ontario is truly your little slice of paradise.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy spectacular trails, year-round events, and awe-inspiring tours along our beautiful waterfront from Hamilton to Oakville. Enjoy a live performance, music, dance or concert on impressive stages and theatres. Hike, bike, ski, skate or geocache at pristine conservation areas or explore the majestic Niagara Escarpment.

Explore Canada's largest botanical gardens, Royal Botanical Gardens, with over 2700 acres of nature sanctuaries, 23 km of hiking trails, display gardens with endless varieties of blooms, plus art, musical events and exhibits throughout the year.

Fly into the past at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, which has a fleet of aircraft that spans World War II to the jet age. Marvel at Dundurn Castle - a 19th century Italianate villa with 40 rooms restored to their former splendour. Kids of all ages will love African Lion Safari.

Enjoy dazzling fall colours from the top of the Niagara Escarpment or spectacular drives to art studios and fall fairs. Skate through winter on lakes and ponds, ski, snowboard. Maple syrup flows in the spring at festivals and gardens burst into bloom. Summer explodes with more fantastic festivals, along scenic waterfronts and in picturesque downtowns.

Centrally located, just an hour from Niagara or Toronto, you'll be in the heart of Ontario… where urban sophistication exists alongside the small town charm and gracious hospitality, awaiting your arrival.
