Just got back from a weekender in Hamilton, Ontario. At first, we weren't too impressed, apparently the down town core is suffering. Incredible buildings were left to literally fall apart. Some signs of an effort to restore the down town core.
BUT!! My sister & her hubby came down and took us outside the city, and WOW. The Botanical gardens just about knocked us over. With only a few hours, we really missed a lot.
For the history buff, you really should make an effort to visit the R.H.L.I Museum housed in the basement of the Armories on James Street. There is an incredible collection of memorabilia from both world wars, and other events which this regiments has been involved with. This unit has a well-deserved reputation for honour and valour. Their losses in WWII were incredible, yet they were one of the groups instrumental in the Liberation of Holland 61 years ago. Their effort was an integral part of pushing the invaders back into Germany, at great cost to them, both individually and as a unit.
Because we only see each other once a year, it was such a treat to be able to call and say "Hey, I'm going to be in the neighbourhood, how about a coffee?" This was a special treat.
- Pros:Lots to do and see
- Cons:down town core is kind of rough.
- In a nutshell:I would like to get back to finish the "see & do" part
We found the accommodations more than adequate, and the staff was very helpful. The Dining Room served excellent meals.... more travel advice
