Please reserve some time for Brantford.
It has a population of about 85 000. You will find here awarded gardens and parks and some interesting museums.
The name goes back to Mohawk Chief Joseph Brant who supported the British after they lost their land in America. They settled at the Grand river on land given to them by the British crown.

You cannot miss it!

Brantford in the Hamilton, Halton and Brant Region

If you have any chance, travel along the "Grand River" to get to Brantford. This is a scenic and relaxing drive.
One of the museum in the city is dedicated to Alexander Graham Bell, the "Canadian" inventor of the telephone.
Obviously nobody here has ever heard anything about Philip Reis. He started years earlier with a different concept which proofed not to be as successful and before him an Italian- America with the name Antonio Meucci presented such a system.
Another interesting place to visit is the Military Museum. My father in law loved to travel with me and especially when we visited anything related to the military past of Canada. He served in WWII and obviously forgot all the horror and bad things.

Back in action


I will visit Brantford again to gather more information supported by my own pictures.


But Brantford with its "suburban" Paris has more to offer. Especially when you come from overseas we recommend to spend some time in Ohsweken on the Grand River to visit the reserve of the "Six Nations on the Grand River". Before you do so, please collect and read respective information which you should get at many tourist offices for free.
It is always helpful and much more exciting to come with some basic knowledge. Visit the "Woodland Cultural Centre". Do not hesitate to talk the native people. They are very friendly and knowledgeable.
Also ask for upcoming events. Something is going on almost every month.
Don't forget to purchase some good souvenirs. Almost everybody liked the hand made moccasins. Ask the native people about the purpose of dream catchers, masks and other art work. It is interesting to know and you can explain many things to your friends at home.

Please do not ignore our native people

Looks nice - but the disaster area is around the corner

Certain parts of downtown were during my last visit in a very poor shape and it is heart breaking to see that. I believe only a good and experienced investor could change this. It would be a great benefit for Brantford.

The casino

Casinos are spreading all over Ontario. If you like gambling and can stop in time - try your luck. You are certainly welcome.
If you never have been in Paris you should not miss the chance to do this when you are in this area. It is very close to Brantford. You will not have any chance to see it for less money. We liked it very much despite the cold weather.
