While it may seem simple, taking a beautiful drive or cycle along the picturesque Niagara Parkway, from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Fort Erie, is a great way to enjoy the scenery. Stop for a picnic lunch along the way, or drive all the way along Lakeshore Road west to Port Dalhousie and on to Jordan Village. Whatever route you decide to take, as long as you have a great soundtrack and even better company, you’ll enjoy the ride.
VISITING FARMER MARKETS
Niagara is famous for its rich agriculture, and fresh farmer markets. Pick your own produce or enjoy the various roadside markets on your drive through Niagara.
Wander through Niagara-on-the-Lake’s heritage district for quaint shops full of character and unique finds. Spend the afternoon pouring through one-of-a-kind ancient treasures, as you hop from shop to shop along the arbour framed streets.
While you may associate wineries with being costly, the truth is you can visit almost all of them completely for free. See the breathtaking properties and vineyard that make up some of Canada’s most well-known wine country. You’ll even get a free sample or two if you decide to purchase a bottle (or several) to enjoy long after you’ve finished exploring Niagara.
