If you plan on taking your Hamilton motorhome rental into the city, it's worth knowing if it's easy to get around in a rig. As part of the Golden Horseshoe, traffic in Hamilton can be hectic, but in general, it's much better than neighboring Mississauga or Toronto. Luckily, there are plenty of RV parking options in Hamilton, including the Lincoln St. Parking Lot for RVers with a smaller rig. You can also use the local bus service to get around the city if you don't feel like driving.
Once you arrive in downtown Hamilton, ensure you spend a day at the Royal Botanical Gardens. Hamilton's biggest tourist attraction, Royal Botanical Gardens, boasts approximately 300,000 individual plants from over 2,400 species. Stroll down 17 miles (27 kilometres) of trails and admire some of the rare and endangered species. Afterward, stop by one of three cafes for a bite to eat surrounded by vibrant flowers.
It's also worth discovering Hamilton's artistic side with a visit to the Art Gallery of Hamilton. The gallery is one of the largest art museums in Canada, with a collection of over 10,000 works from local and international artists. Highlights from the museum's collection include works by Auguste Rodin, William Blair Bruce, and Catherine Gibbon. The museum also regularly hosts temporary exhibits, so check what's showing while you're in town.
If you're looking to spend your days exploring the Canadian countryside, you won't want to miss Hamilton's sublime waterfalls. Among the best is Albion Falls to the south of the city. Surrounded by the lush King's Forest neighborhood, Albion Falls stands at 62 feet (19 metres) tall and 59 feet (18 metres) wide, with different shelves in the waterfall adding to its beauty. There are two viewing platforms where visitors can appreciate this stunning waterfall.
