Destination: Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
Featured on Lake Ontario Cruises
Looking for one of the greatest spots in Ontario before you head off to Niagara Falls? Niagara-on-the-Lake cruises will take you there. This town, located just off of Lake Ontario and only a little ways away from the Falls, is a beautiful village built during the 19th century. The town features quite a few examples of Victorian-style architecture, and has tons to do in its Downtown area. It's also located right in the middle of Ontario Wine Country, so you can be sure there's plenty of great, local drink for sampling.
Niagara-on-the-Lake also offers one of the easiest ways to get to Niagara Falls. The town has a shuttle that takes you directly to the Falls from May 5th to October 29th. It runs every 60 minutes, and is fairly cheap at only $7 for adults and $5 for children. You can find the shuttle at the historic Floral Clock of Niagara-on-the-Lake, and purchase tickets with the bus driver.
While being a gateway to Niagara Falls is undoubtedly the biggest reason people visit Niagara-on-the-Lake, this scenic town is every bit worth spending time in. Here, you'll experience quaint cafes, boutique shops, and more in what is arguably Ontario's most beautiful town.
