Niagara is probably THE most romantic destination in the country. Indeed, many couples go there every year to celebrate their nuptials, to remember them, or just to have a good time with their loved one. Besides its waterfalls, which are known throughout the world and visited by countless people every year, the vineyards that dot the land also make it famous. The region also has many interesting museums.
Without a doubt, the city's most famous attraction is the waterfalls. Although they are not very tall, they are mainly characterized by their width and flow. Indeed, they are the most powerful waterfalls in all of North America. It’s not surprising that they are known around the world! You absolutely must go for a walk in the evening: from dusk to midnight, spotlights illuminate both sides of the falls. You must not miss this colorful spectacle!
During your stay, take the opportunity to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake, a quaint little town located just across the Niagara River. There you can visit Fort Niagara, a 17th century fortification, the home of Laura Secord, heroine of the War of 1812 (she didn't just make chocolate!), as well as the Mackenzie Printery & Newspaper Museum, which is dedicated to the history of the printing press and Toronto's first mayor, William Lyon Mackenzie. Finally, in Niagara Falls, there is also the famous Guinness Records Museum, a fascinating place!
The region is also known for the quality of its wines. Indeed, it is possible to visit several estates and taste their grands crus. First, there is Château des Charmes, founded in the 1970s by Paul Bosc, which offers excellent meals prepared by renowned chef Marc Lyons as well as delicious vintage wines. Then, there is Peller Estates Winery & Restaurant, another estate which wines have received several international awards. Finally, you can also visit the Konzelmann estate, where they serve ice wine in chocolate glasses! A great way to combine the useful with the pleasant!
Thirty-five years ago was born Niagara Falls Festival of Lights. Today it is Canada's largest illuminated festival! Indeed, more than a million visitors go there each year during the holidays to walk the illuminated path. The facilities are located along the Niagara Highway, from Queen Victoria Park to Dufferin Islands Park. Several shows are presented during the festival. Think again! This is not just a festival for children. The gigantic animal-shaped lanterns leave absolutely no one indifferent! This is a great way to celebrate winter in a different way.
