a place or means of entry.

Introducing readers to hidden gems and untold stories, The Inlet is an entry point to Hamilton, and its surrounding areas, reporting on people, places, and things that aren’t already making headlines.

Launched in 2017, The Inlet was created by six bloggers, each with a proven history of connecting readers to the Hamilton community. By coming together, they bring their diverse interests to The Inlet, continuing their tradition of keeping readers in the know.

Inspired by a series of inlets that once dotted Hamilton’s industrial landscape, The Inlet explores a changing city through the eyes of people who love it. From arts and culture, food and drinks, architecture, and everything in between, The Inlet showcases the daily experiences — from a night on the town to a family day trip — that make this growing, changing city an exciting place to be.
