Stroll back through history and enjoy world class theatre, fine dining, shopping, estate wineries, farm markets and historical sites. Niagara-on-the-Lake, often called the "Prettiest Town in Canada", has a long and distinguished history.
It was the first capital of Upper Canada. Destroyed during the war of 1812-14, and rebuilt, Niagara became an active centre once again. Over two hundred years after its founding, Niagara-on-the-Lake hums to a different tune. Its many attractions include historic sites, 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. A short drive along the scenic Niagara Parkway, beside the beautiful Niagara River, leads to historic Queenston Heights and world-famous Niagara Falls. The town's famous landmark is best known as the Clock Tower.
Thousands of visitors stroll the old streets, enjoy the comforts of fine accommodation including a vast variety of charming bed and breakfast homes, and dine in our many fine restaurants. It's a short journey back to a more leisurely time - the age of Niagara-on-the-Lake! Check Shaw Festival
