Hamilton is a city with a rich history and a vibrant future. In the past decade, it has asserted itself as a Canadian hub for a range of cultural activity including visual arts, music, literature and more.

Architecturally, Hamilton is exceptionally blessed. Stand at the corner of James Street and Main for example, and you are presented with one of the best 360 degree tours of iconic architecture, the Gothic Revival style of the Piggott Building, the neo-classical former Bank of Montreal, the terra-cotta details of the Sun Life Building, the soaring pillars of the Landed Bank and Loan building, and the cozy Victorian charm of the Hamilton Club. Just up the street stands the Gothic revival beauty of St. Paul’s.

There is more than history to Hamilton. This is a community of vibrant neighbourhoods, each with a distinct character. Westdale, Ancaster and Dundas offer culturally rich and exciting areas for dining, visiting galleries, and shopping. In downtown Hamilton, James Street North is a bustling engine of artistic energy with new galleries and emerging artists making their homes here. Locke Street is the place for antiques, collectibles and cafes, while Hess Village with its cobbled streets, upscale dining and funky club scene swings until the wee hours. The Waterfront district has become a Mecca for hikers, boarders and water sports enthusiasts. In the East end, there is a cornucopia of ethnic cultures, whose food stores and shops, like the bargain-priced fabric emporiums on Ottawa Street, are a buyer’s delight.

Circling the cosmopolitan pleasures of the city are some of the best urban pleasures to be had in Ontario- the splendour of Canada’s most important gardens, the Royal Botanical Gardens, the famous Bruce Trail, and an abundance of conservation areas, water parks and walking paths. Overlooking the waters of Lake Ontario and extending up over the protective circle of the Niagara Escarpment, this is a city whose proximity to Toronto and the Niagara Peninsula make it an ideal destination for the traveler who wants to get close to the heart of the real Ontario.

Close to Toronto and offering affordable housing, Hamilton (population 500,000) is well situated either for commuting or for relocation. Websites to explore include: www.artgalleryofhamilton.com; www.tourismhamilton.com; www.thespec.com.
