Welcome to Niagara-on-the-Lake!

Set by the Niagara River and Lake Ontario, historic Niagara-on-the-Lake captures attention with its Georgian and Victorian-styled buildings, waterfront park and surrounding fields of grapevines. The town was once the capital of Ontario, and home to a strong military presence and a busy port. Fort George National Historic Site was the military stand post of the British, and has been completely reconstructed, with costumed actors performing throughout the site. The Laura Secord Homestead is the celebrated home of the War of 1812 heroine, and visitors can look through the two storey refurbished cottage. Besides window shopping and dining in Olde Town, hundreds come to Niagara-on-the-Lake for the well-known Shaw Festival Theatre, one of Canada�s premier theatre festivals that generally run from April until December. Wineries are also very abundant in the area, and most offer tours and tastings. For those who favour the fresh air, a sopping wet tour of the area on a jet boat tour may be on the agenda (dry options are also available) or a bike tour along the scenic trails.
