Staycation

Summertime is a great time to getaway. Cross country road trips, flights overseas, or cruises to see new destinations are all great! Or you can vacation right from the comfort of your own home! There are many things to do without even leaving your hometown. Take a few days, and plan some fun!


Lunch dates We all have those friends we never get to see. This is the perfect chance to plan a lunch date! An afternoon relaxing on the patio with friends is a great way to spend your vacation!

 

Picnic Pack a picnic lunch, go to a local park, and relax in the sun! There are many beautiful parks to enjoy. Bring along a frisbee for some added fun!

 

Hiking There are many places to go for a hike. Hamilton boasts over 100 waterfalls! Plan hikes that allow you to visit some of these gems!

 

Museums, Art Galleries, and Theatres From the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, to the Art Gallery Of Hamilton, to The Players' Guild of Hamilton, there are many artistic venues to visit. Hamilton event boasts the Canadian Football Hall Of Fame, and is home to the HMCS Haida National Historic Site!

 

Family Activities There are also lots of fun things to do with the kids. There is the Hamilton Children's Museum (lots of fun for a rainy day), Little Ray's Reptile Zoo And Nature Centre (a great place for those reptile lovers) Wild Waterworks (a full day of waterslides and fun in the sun) or Starlight Drive-In (a great way to cap off a full day!)

 

There are so many local attractions, with so much to see and do. With a little planning staying home can be an amazing vacation! For more ideas visit your local tourism centre, or visit https://tourismhamilton.com
