When I visited Hamilton I enjoyed many attractions like the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. I took pictures of over thirty air crafts that were flown from all different time periods. They had military planes, bomber planes and some of the early civilian airplanes. Alson in Hamilton, the Dundurn Castle was a great place to visit because I got to see the life of Sir Allan Napier MacNab. He lived during the nineteenth century and later in life became a very powerful lawyer who owned much real estate. They had many rooms with great artifacts from that time period. Other great attractions in the city of Hamilton to visit are Canadian Football Hall Of Fame & Museum, Royal Botanical Gardens, HMCS Haida, The Pearl Company and the Canada Marine Discovery Centre.
The communities in Hamilton are very beautiful. Ainslie Wood is a very big community in Hamilton. It is broken down into the north, east and west sections. I spent most of my time in the west side of the community but visited all sections. There are beautifully landscaped lawns. I was a little surprised to see no gates but the residents were very nice. The parks were very green with lots of trees for shade. Some of the other communities in Hamilton are Bartonville, Corman, Homeside and Greenford.
I had the pleasure of dining at some of the best restaurants in Hamilton. La Cantina Ristorante has some of the best alfredo pasta I've ever tasted. I loved the live music and the wine was excellent and not overpriced. The Black Forest Inn European Cuisine was another great restaurant that I ate at in. The Ancaster Old Mill Inn, The Old Powerhouse Restaurant, Little Saigon Vietnamese and Thai Restaurant and The Mandarin Restaurant are also worth visiting. What I loved most about all of these restaurants is that there was wonderful atmosphere, live music and great wine.
Hamilton, ON has some great nightclubs that stay open very early (or late) in the morning. Casban is a great night club. They have a strict dress code that doesn't allow sneakers or flip flops.. The guys must wear button up shirts and the girls cannot wear jeans. They play the newest techno and pop music. On certain nights they have great drink specials. The other great clubs that are in Hamilton ON are Absinthe Club, Elixir Lounge & Nightclub, Embassy Club, Seventy- Seven and Jamrock nightclub.
When I wanted to do some shopping in Hamilton I went to Lime Ridge Mall. I bought some things at Sears, Old Navy and Victoria Secret. The mall had an excellent pizza place where I ate and afterwards I had some excellent ice cream. Some of the other shopping centers I have visited is Hamilton South Shopping Centers Limited, Flamboro Center Properties Ltd, Sherway Gardens West Side Mall and Eaton Centre. I hope we'll be back again!
