Niagara World Wonder & Wine Country

Niagara Falls is one of the top destinations of the world, whether seen from behind the falls or from the sky by helicopter. Spend an evening at Casino Niagara and take in a show or browse the many shops and boutiques on Clifton Hill. A day in Niagara Falls would not be complete without a meal at one of the many award-winning restaurants in the area.

Check out the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory and don't forget to wear bright clothes to attract a winged friend! Plan on making a day of it…bring a picnic and spend a wonderful day on the grounds…which is also home to the Niagara School of Horticulture and offers acres of floral wonders.

Within a short drive of the falls, enter the world-class lush vineyards of the Niagara region where taste testing is an art and ice wine is a gift from the gods.

History buffs can spend hours reliving past battles at Fort George and Fort Erie or just remembering the life of Laura Secord, beloved heroine of the War of 1812. Theatre-goers will revel in the fabulous world class Shaw Festival. Take a drive along the Niagara Parkway, which Winston Churchill once described as the “Prettiest Sunday Drive Anywhere” and marvel at the gardens, fruit markets and the quaint specialty shops in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Watch ships climb a mountain! Ships of many shapes and sizes wind their way through the locks of the Welland Canal en route from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario. There are many viewing platforms where you can view this astounding feat along the route including Lock Three, which also houses a museum.

Southern Ontario is the place to Wonder
