Niagara On The Lake Ontario

Described As The Prettiest Town In Ontario

For some, the gaudy attractions and nightlife of Niagara Falls town is too much. If bright lights and themed restaurants aren't quite your cup of tea, visit tranquil Niagara on the Lake for its special blend of old world charm and new world wine.

Often described as the prettiest town in Ontario, this beautifully-sculptured 19th century village is home to many quaint hotels, fine restaurants and luxurious resorts. Take a horse and carriage ride through quiet streets lined with art galleries and antique shops, and explore historic sites such as the former British stronghold of Fort George.

Then, relax with a glass of delicious wine in a nearby winery, vineyard or tasting room. Theatre fans should plan their visit around the Shaw Festival; inspired by the works of Bernard Shaw, this popular event features a diverse selection of high-quality plays in the town's many theatres.
