Webster’s Falls, Ontario. (Just outside of Hamilton).
Early this fall we went to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, which is another city along the west end of Lake Ontario. It’s an hour’s drive from Niagara Falls. Although Hamilton has a reputation for it’s industry and the steel mills are visible on the drive along the QEW; it is also well known for McMaster University. Most people don’t think of Hamilton as a tourist town, but you might just be surprised as to what it has to offer. So come explore with us.

Homestead House is a pleasant retreat in Mount Hope, ON, a stone’s throw from Hamilton. We enjoyed the country location right near the Hamilton Airport. The breakfasts were amazing, and the hosts most hospitable. http://www.homesteadhousebb.ca/

A little known secret…there are gorgeous homes near the Mountain Access road, Queen St. Hamilton. You have to hunt a little… (Near the hospital). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Street_(Hamilton,_Ontario)
Another gorgeous home!
The Art Gallery of Hamilton. And me. 😉
I really enjoyed this little gem.
Here is another secret. If you don’t care about the atmosphere but want a great tasting Shawarma or Falafel or Gyro or Kabob: Go to Bastoni’s! http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g154990-d4975557-r209800859-Bastoni_s_Shawarma-Hamilton_Ontario.html
