So you’ve moved into your new Hamilton condo, it’s fall, and you don’t know what to do. You’ve never experienced fall unless you live in Hamilton, and that isn’t hyperbole – it’s the truth! While the foliage is transitioning into its fall wardrobe, you can benefit from one of the GTA’s most exciting neighbourhoods. Below is a list of fun experiences in Hamilton during the fall!

Hamilton during the fall



You may think that a paddle from Paris to Brant Park would be crazy because of the crisp weather, but you’d be wrong! The colours of the season will make your paddle undoubtedly the most memorable paddle adventure of your life. Bring an extra pair of clothes in case you fall in and some hot cocoa just in case!

Ancaster Fairgrounds

The Ancaster Fairgrounds routinely opens its doors to the public for all types of reasons. The fall is perhaps its most exciting time as it means the Ancaster Fair is just around the corner. You can also take a stroll through the Ancaster Lions Fall Craft Show or the Mineral, Bead, Jewelry, and Gem show – just in the time for the holidays! Whether you want to see the talents of Hamilton or you want to buy new décor for your new condo, the Ancaster Fairgrounds can make it happen!

Royal Botanical Gardens

Designed after the Kew Gardens in England, Hamilton’s Royal Botanical Gardens are truly a garden made for royalty. With 400 acres of gardens to display and maintain over 2300 acres, this living laboratory is undoubtedly one of the crown jewels of Ontario. To see Royal Botanical Gardens is to gaze into the eyes of Mother Nature herself. The elegant beauty of the gardens must be seen to be believed and truly appreciated.

And hey, it’s perfect for the fall too! Royal Botanical Gardens routinely has fall events for the whole family, including the Great Pumpkin Trail and of course the Tea Festival. When you need to get out of your Hamilton condo, this is the place to be!
