Great Spots To Eat

When are there too many choices in what to eat? Never, that’s when! The truth is, if you ate out every day for a year, you still won’t have scratched the surface of the food in this town. Better get moving, is what we’re saying, and here’s the best place to start!

people, places, things...


A wise man once said, “life comes at you fast, if you don’t stop and look around once and a while, you could miss it.” That’s Hamilton in a nutshell – our city works hard, moves fast and always has something new to offer! That’s why we have our own hashtag. That same person also said “you can never go too far” and “if I’m going to get busted, it is NOT going to be by a guy like that!” It’s Ferris Bueller. We’re talking about Ferris Bueller. Who is this mysterious ‘guy like that,’ you ask? We have no idea, but he’s probably posting on social!

shopping has never been so easy

Retail Therapy

From textiles, fashion, home and garden, decor, art and art supplies to dog bones and garden gnomes, you name it, we’ve got it. It’s all here, and it’s all Hamilton!

expand your horizons

Stream Weaver

If we’re being honest, our least favourite part about being in public is having to put on pants. Yes, we know it’s important to socialize, get active, learn a new skill, etc, but, again, pants! Thankfully we no longer need despair, and neither do you, because with live streaming these things have never been more simple or pants free. Livin’ the dream, my friends, is as easy as clickin’ the stream!

We're here for that, allowing you to narrow your search down to what's in your neighbourhood! Sitting in the living room, planning your outing, or already out and about on the town, our Hub Hotspots help narrow your focus down from everything to everything in your immediate vicinity.
