Hamilton Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 235 photos

Though there are not heaps of things to do in the city of Hamilton, you can still have a good time. Hamilton is a party town Wednesday thru Saturday nights and you will find the bars and clubs packed! The people in Hamilton are very friendly and it is very much a university town - you'll notice that in the bar scene. There are shopping centers downtown, lots of good bars and restaurants, the Hamilton Gardens, the Waikato River, and of course, the University of Waikato - with it's beautiful campus.

    The Hilly has been demolished, rebuilt, and in the process has lost much of its previous charm and patronage.
