Hamilton, Ontario, is a port city in Canada which began its history following the War of 1812. Founded originally as a farmstead by George Hamilton in 1812, the area has since then grown to be one of the most important cities in North America. Situated between Toronto and the Niagara falls, it is bounded by the scenic southern shores of Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes of North America. With breathtaking greenery, dense forests and beautiful parks, it offers amazing access to spectacular waterfalls and recreation and conservation lands which make the city an ideal destination for hikers, cyclists, boaters and outdoor thrill-seekers. The Royal Botanical Gardens contains rare flowers, rock gardens, natural parklands, an arboretum, a bird sanctuary and woodland ravines and so is a nature lover's paradise.
