What makes you proud of the place you call home? Is it the friendly people? The beautiful buildings? The nature that surrounds you? If you’re fortunate enough to call Hamilton home, you’ll know there are so many reasons to be proud of this city. Hamilton is where our beautiful Liuna Station has stood tall for close to a century. Within these walls, we have captured some of the most special moments in the lives of so many of our guests. It has been a place of new beginnings, a place of celebration and a place where magic happens. Part of what makes Liuna so special has a lot to do with what you find beyond these walls, throughout the city that surrounds us. When you choose Liuna Station, you don’t only get an extraordinary event when you walk through our door – you get an opportunity for your guests to enjoy the wonderful experiences that our city has to offer. Whether you call Hamilton home, or you plan on making your way to Liuna Station for your next event, we’d like to share with you a few reasons why Hamilton is definitely the place to be.
[Water]fall in love
Nothing says romance like a beautiful waterfall and there is absolutely no shortage of waterfalls in our great city. You may have heard of a little place called Niagara Falls just a short drive from the Hammer, but did you know that Hamilton is actually the waterfall capital of the world? Residents and visitors have the opportunity to witness over 100 waterfalls in the Hamilton area. Just imagine the photo opportunities!
Whether you’re an avid hiker or just looking to breathe in some fresh air, Hamilton has the right path for you. There are several walking and biking trails including Bruce Trail Conservancy, Chippawa Trail, Dundas Valley Conservation Area and the Escarpment Rail Trail, to name a few. It’s a great opportunity to get out with family and friends, take in the beauty of mother nature and get a little exercise while you’re at it!
Home is Where the H-Art Is
Hamilton’s art and music scene is growing by the second and Liuna Station is right in the thick of it on James Street North. Every second Friday night of the month you can experience the James North Art Crawl. Galleries, shops and studios open their doors for visitors to experience the work of so many of Hamilton’s talented artists. If you’re a fan of live music you should also check out the lineup of amazing artists who plan on making stops in Hamilton in 2017. The iconic Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip once declared that the city of Hamilton is the best place for live music and one of his favourite cities to perform in. We agree!
We’ve Got Spirit!
To say that Hamilton sports fans have got spirit would be an understatement. We are proud of our athletes and love getting out to cheer on our hometown teams. While you’re in Hamilton for your event at Liuna Station, you should get in the spirit and make your way to a Hamilton Tiger-Cats football game or head to the FirstOntario Centre to watch the Hamilton Bulldogs hit the ice.
Nothing to Wine About
Ontario makes some great wine, and so much of it comes from the gorgeous vineyards surrounding Hamilton. While you’re in the area for your event at Liuna Station, why not take a little drive to the gorgeous Niagara-on-the-Lake? Visit the Old Town shopping district, boutiques, delicious restaurants, museums and theatre, all steps from Ontario’s most popular wineries. We’ll drink to that!
We have only just started to scratch the surface of what Hamilton and the surrounding area has to offer. When you join us for your next event at Liuna Station, be sure to get out and experience it all for yourself!
