Hamilton is a city of 500,000, nestled against the picturesque Niagara escarpment on the western edge of Lake Ontario. A relaxed, culturally diverse atmosphere with excellent public schools make Hamilton an attractive place for families. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the excellent local hiking, climbing and mountain biking. The pleasures of wine country can be enjoyed in nearby Niagara with the annual Grape & Wine festival, as well as year-round tasting tours.
