We will visit three cities  of the Golden Horseshoe region: Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton.

 

In Oakville, we will drop by the Oakville Gallery, located off the coast of Lake Ontario in the very picturesque Gairloch Garden.

 

The Joseph Brant Museum in Burlington is dedicated to a celebrated Indigenous leader who is considered to be the first resident of Burlington. Recently, the museum building has undergone extensive reconstruction and looks modernistic. 

The Burlington Art Gallery is just 250 meters from the Joseph Brant Museum. It is adjacent to Spencer Smith Park and Lake Ontario. The gallery is Ontario's seventh largest art gallery and is best known for its largest collection of contemporary Canadian ceramics in Canada.

 

After Oakville and Burlington we will find ourselves in Hamilton, which is dubbed as  the the Waterfall Capital of the World and Steeltown. 

We will see the main city attractions and landmarks, including the majestic  Cathedral Basilica of Christ the King, impressive Dundurn Castle, monuments, bridges, Masonic lodge, the McMaster University campus, the picturesque Armes Lookout Park with panoramic city views from the height of the Niagara Escarpment.

 

The Tropical Greenhouse was rebuilt in 2019. The huge glass building has a rich collection of subtropical and unique plants, palm and other trees. It has its own waterfall, a pond with fish, turtles and water lilies. 

We will also visit the Hamilton Art Gallery, one of the best in Ontario.

 

Free time in downtown, where there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and food courts.
