Maybe you’re the type to relish a lazy day of relaxing in sunshine on a patch of grass in the park, or maybe you’re more inclined to go out seeking entertainment and adventure.
Either way, we’ve got some great ideas for what to do in Hamilton! Here is a selection of some enjoyable places to visit in the Hamilton area.
SHERMAN FALLS & THE BRUCE TRAIL
Location: Lion’s Club Road, Hamilton, ON
Hours: Always Open (Nature doesn’t close)
Are you the kind of person who thrives in nature? Is your first impulse after consuming to find some natural beauty? Then Sherman Falls is a must-visit for you!
Located along the marked paths of Lion’s Club Road in Hamilton, the area offers broad, comfortable walking paths and a beautiful bridge. Bring some lunch with you and set up a wonderful picnic in view of the falls. There are both paid and free parking options nearby (make sure to bring a non-smoking friend with you if you’re going to be driving).
The entrance to the Bruce Trail is directly across the road from the path leading to the falls, so if you’re looking for a longer walk, the option is just a hop, skip and a jump away.
AFRICAN LION SAFARI
Location: 1386 Cooper Rd, Hamilton, ON N1R 5S2
Hours: Sunday-Saturday, 9am-4pm
Love the outdoors, but want something a little more exciting to look at than beautiful landscapes? Do you adore animals? Then perhaps African Lion Safari is the right place for your next post-smoke adventure.
There are a wide variety of activities waiting for guests here. Whether they’re enjoying the 9km safari trek in their own car, (we’d recommend the guided tour for those who will be consuming before-hand), walking the grounds and taking in the sights on foot or enjoying one of the amazing bird and animal presentations, there’s something for everyone!
With a beautiful ‘African Queen’ boat cruise, the entrancing ‘Nature Boy’ railway and kids’ playgrounds both wet and dry, there’s always something to do for visitors of all ages.
Location: 865 Upper James St. Unit 1, Hamilton, ON L9C 3A3
Hours: Sunday-Thursday, 11am-11pm. Friday-Saturday, 11am-12am
Perhaps you’re the kind of cannabis user that doesn’t love the outdoors, or prefers to find excitement through more intense, competitive means. If so, Lazermania is sure to scratch that itch for you.
Lazermania features a multi-level, state-of-the-art laser tag arena, a huge arcade offering both arcade and ticket redemption games. The huge indoor arena is also popular for their late-night lock-ins, which give the older crowds a chance to play without worrying about being swarmed by young players.
Who says laser tag is just for kids? Not us!
