On an annual basis, I make about four to six trips crossing over the Burlington Skyway from Toronto to Fort Erie on the QEW, usually to visit the city of Hamilton or Niagara region on a quick day trip. When you look at the map, just south of Hamilton and Niagara lies Haldimand County … This was where we went for an overnight trip just before spring starts to enjoy some experiences offered by the friendly locals … We stayed close to the Grand River area of Dunnville and Port Maitland.
Upon deviating off the QEW and heading southbound, we were greeted by the lovely county welcome sign. Haldimand County currently has a population of about 45,000.
