Ports

Hamilton is a port city in the Canadian Ontario province founded in the XIX century. The city boasts many attractions for you to enjoy. If history is your thing, visit the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum or HMCS Haida museum ship. Contemplate art in one of the many galleries and museums or stroll through the Hess Street with its historic buildings and cobblestone road.

Bath is a small Canadian village in the province of Ontario. It is a part of the township called Loyalist, on the shores of Lake Ontario. Bath dates back to the 18th century. Visit the Old Townhall which nowadays hosts the Bath Museum, take a walk in one of the parks or stroll down the Main Street for a taste of ice cream. If you like golfing you should definitely visit the Loyalist Golf and Country Club, while nature enthusiasts can go for a hike along the Parrott’s Bay Conservation Area.
