THINGS TO SEE & DO
Niagara-on-the-Lake is the original Capital of Upper Canada from 1792 to 1797. Nestled along the shores of the Niagara River and Lake Ontario, we hold the distinction of being the only municipality in Canada whose elected head holds the title of Lord Mayor.
2012 was the 200th commemoration of the War of 1812. Lasting from 1812 to 1814, this was the only time any country invaded Canada. Today, millions of people from around the world travel here each year to experience our Townâs unique charm and historic sites, including Fort George and Brockâs Monument; period-restored heritage homes, and Canada's first golf course.
We hope you will enjoy our Old Town shopping district, which boasts of a number of quaint shops, boutiques, restaurants, and spas, as well as public and private art galleries, the centuries-old Court House, museums, breath-taking parks and gardens, as well as over 50 wineries and countless vineyards (many of which produce our world-class ice wine), and of course, the renowned Shaw Festival Theatre.ï»¿ï»¿
