Probably one of my favourite drives in all of the Province of Ontario is along the Niagara River. There’s always something to see along the winding Niagara Parkway that starts at Fort Erie and ends at Fort George. This time we, that is Heather and me, did not do the full drive instead we started at Niagara Falls these large streams of water that cascade down into the river below. Of course, Clifton Hill isn’t my usual spot to visit at the falls but you know it’s rather fun to see all the tourist trap places, plus a new Craft Brewery to check out another time.
From the Falls it was a beautiful drive to the small village of Queenston. While today it’s a sleepy village, two hundred years ago the sounds of battle rang through it as it was the site of the first American invasion of the Anglo-American War of 1812, but the shaded streets were a welcome break from the humid weather running rampent through the province this summer.
The final stop is one of my favourite towns to visit in the province, Niagara-on-the-Lake. This beautiful little town has little shops, like Heather’s favourite Irish store, and a couple of great places to sit down and enjoy good food. And just lovely streets to wander along both the main street and the side streets. Every house and building have some level of charm about it.
