2. Albion Falls and the first Tim Hortons, Hamilton.
No Ontario road trip is complete without stopping at Tim Hortons. But did you know its flagship store (65 Ottawa St. N. at Dunsmure) is still around? First opened in 1964 in Hamilton, visitors can take in the on-site museum which features a collection of memorabilia showcasing the chain’s almost 60-year history.
As you’re already in the self-branded “Waterfall Capital of the World”, consider taking in at least one of the more than 100 waterfalls Hamilton boasts. Albion Falls is a mere 15 minute drive from Tim Horton’s flagship store, and is a popular destination on hot summer days. Not only is it easily accessible, especially if travelling with kids, it is littered with fantastic spots to spend an afternoon reading, taking pictures or simply watching the beauty of the falls. (Note: Strollers are not recommended.)
