Just like other cities. It has its faults. There is crime here too! Stay in well lit areas. Keep your doors locked etc....
Not enough time in one day. You have to have at least a few days to see things her. There is so much to see of historical value. Walking or driving tours. You can pick up maps at the convention visitors center.
We always dress in layers. Bring hats and gloves and rain gear. You never know what the weather is going to do here.
Photo Equipment: We always have our camera and film ready!
Miscellaneous: Most hotels have extra shampoo and conditioner, blow dryer etc...

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park has trails you can hike
Equipment: Bring your own snaks and drinks etc... The gift shop was not open when we went. I have no idea what they have?
There's more to see than just inside Hamilton. There is Amusement Parks, Casinos, Water Parks, Riding Centers etc...
Fondest memory: I loved all the art and culture of this fine town and the people. They all seemed to just go with the flow of things.
