“The Niagara-on-the-Lake Effect” is a feeling that many people describe as unique to Niagara-on-the-Lake. It’s a feeling that’s difficult to put your finger on, but it all starts with our agricultural roots, stunning vistas and our Heritage District — the centre of the Town’s shopping area, home to Landmark Shops.
The Heritage District showcases the Town’s history and the buildings tell the story of the architecture of years past. Enjoy the live view you see here…
TODAY, over two hundred years after its founding, Niagara-on-the-Lake hums with a different kind of traffic. Its many attractions include historic sites – Fort George and the Historical Society Museum, the Shaw Festival with its three theatres, the marina, our heritage business district for shopping, golf courses, parks and beautiful farmland, agricultural markets and our world famous Niagara wineries. Come to the many special events held throughout the year! Take a carriage ride through the Old Town, or a jet boat up the Niagara River. A short drive along the scenic Niagara Parkway leads to Queenston Heights and Niagara Falls. Check out the Butterfly Conservatory at the Niagara Parks Commission site. Our town attracts thousands of visitors who stroll the old streets, enjoy the comforts of fine hotels or our charming bed and breakfast homes, dine in our many varied restaurants, and, if even for a little while, journey back in time to a more leisurely time – the age of Niagara-on-the-Lake!
Situated on the south shore of Lake Ontario at the mouth of the Niagara River, Niagara-on-the-Lake is easy to reach via highway from all of Ontario and the northeastern USA.
