Not being one to follow the beaten path, you eschew the novelty for the sublime, the overexposed for the undiscovered, and—most especially—the tourist trap for the intimate experience. Many Buffalo hotel deals include some sort of getaway package to Niagara Falls. There is little doubt that the sheer magnitude of the horseshoe cascade can inspire awe as well as solidify man’s insignificance in nature. However, being corralled through the natural wonder-turned-sideshow like cattle through a stockade does not illicit visions of a welcoming vacation. Instead, a stay across the Canadian border at a hotel in Hamilton, ON will better put you in touch with the watercourse way.
Boasting over 100 waterfalls, the Ambitious City beckons the traveler seeking serenity in solitude—or, at the very least, a respite from the rank and file. While Hamilton certainly offers a thriving art scene and all the traditional trappings of a metropolitan destination, you’ll find many nature trails that connect numerous creeks to the falls. Ease behind the wheel of your Hamilton rental car and head for the hidden. A stroll along King’s Forest Walk to Albion Falls not only connects you with nature’s life-giving tonic, it also puts you in the nexus of Hamiltonian history where a small 1790’s community grew into a modern working-town. If you are game for slightly more strenuous activity, Devil’s Punchbowl is prepared to oblige you. The sweat on your brow is well worth the price of admission to gaze upon the wall of sedimentary rock supporting the towering falls before heading back to your restful Hamilton hotel.
With the help of Travelocity, you can find cheap hotels in Hamilton so you can keep on chasing waterfalls. You’ll be rewarded a hundred times over.
