Hamilton is the 4th most populous city of Ontario after Toronto, Ottawa, and Mississauga. It has the largest area though. Not many people know it, but Hamilton, with its 100 waterfalls, is considered to be the world's capital of waterfalls. To-date, we have visited the following Falls (in a chronological order):
Hamilton Region 1 (around Highway 6 and Dundas Road):
1. Webster Falls
2. Tews Falls
3. Borer's Falls
4. Darnley Cascade
5. Hollow Creek (aka Great) Falls
Hamilton Region 2 (around Chedoke Radial Recreation Trail):
6. Lower Cliffview Falls
7. Unnamed easy to reach Falls westwards of Chedoke Golf Course parking lot
8. Unnamed brutal hike Falls eastwards of Chedoke Golf Course parking lot

Hamilton region 4 (around Rousseaux Street / Wilson road)
10. Mill Falls
11. Lower Mill Falls
12. Sherman Falls
Two other well-known destinations in Hamilton are Royal Botanical Gardens and Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
Hamilton and its neighbouring townships have most conservation park per square foot in Ontario. Many areas are located within the boundaries of the city itself. Christie Lake Conservation Area is perhaps one of the few in the Escarpment countries that offer hiking, canoeing, boating and fishing activities all in one place.
You can walk or preferably drive down to the north side of Hamilton Harbour. While fishing is one option here, you can take the trail that runs alongside the marsh. You will be rewarded with many scenic views and friendly squirrels like this one.
- Pros:Proximity to cities in the USA and to Mississauga, good views of the Niagara Escarpment
- Cons:The tourist resources are not well publicised.
- In a nutshell:A haven for waterfalls lovers, canoeists, boaters and nature conservationists
