Reasons for trip

Each year, hundreds of thousands flock to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls to gaze at the natural spectacle in awe and at the tacky side shows in shock.

Many, however, never venture just 20 minutes further north to visit the chocolate box pretty town of Niagara On The Lake which is a great shame.

The main street is decorated with beautiful flowers, there are shops, restaurants and galleries galore and lovely lakeside paths to walk.

This is one of Canada’s most famous wine regions too with winery visits practically mandatory.

Add to this the Shaw Festival each year and the abundance of fabulous B&Bs and you could easily linger for several days.

Take free walking tour provided by the local history museum, catch one of the Fest’s plays or visit the nearby fort, a relic from the war of 1812.

Whatever you do, you’ll have a ball!
