It's no wonder Niagara and Niagara-on-the-Lake combine to form one of Canada's most visited regions.

For the outdoorsy folks, there's the Niagara River Recreation Trail, winding along the river bank and perfect for cycling or walking. For those who want to create waves, book a Whirlpool Jet Boat Tour for a high speed (and often wet) trip through the stonewalled canyon of the Niagara Gorge.

Culture seekers already know about the Shaw Festival, one of the country's top theatre experiences. There's also plenty of self-guided or guided walking tours of the area's historic architecture as well as several museums featuring early Upper Canada history to explore.

Foodies are spoiled for choice, with over 40 wineries dotting the countryside. Many offer up not only bottled bliss, but award-winning restaurants as well.

And, of course, there's Queen Street's diverse range of shops, with local produce, high-end clothing boutiques, and original gifts for friends who weren't lucky enough to come on your trip.

No matter how often you come back, there's always something new to try here.

Niagara is Canada's most celebrated grape and wine producing region. The combination of soils and climate that stretches summers into one of the longest growing seasons in Canada, nourishes and matures grapes for the finest wines. Old and New World expertise combined with some of North America's finest quality grapes produce award-winning wines worthy of their international acclaim.
