  • Speedy Sub: Classic assorted subs that never disappoint.
  • Memphis Fire House and BBQ: Dive into their succulent ribs and pulled pork.

Hamilton is a haven for nature lovers. While Burlington might have the renowned Spencer Smith Park, Hamilton, being a larger city, offers numerous conservation areas and trails.

  • Sporting Events: Cheer for the Tiger-Cats, Hamilton Bull Dogs, Forge FC

Hamilton’s vastness and its history of being a conglomerate of smaller towns mean that the city offers a diverse range of real estate options. From century-old redbrick homes to modern condos, there’s something for everyone. And the best part? Hamilton is generally more affordable than cities like Burlington or Oakville.

5. Top-notch Healthcare: Hamilton prides itself on its healthcare facilities.

  • McMaster Sick Kids Hospital: It’s not just a hospital; it’s among the best, with the McMaster Pediatrics Centre ranking 46th globally.
