Famous the world over for the breathtaking Horseshoe Falls, the Niagara region is also Ontario’s premier wine destination.
In addition to waterfalls and wine, visitors will also find non-stop excitement with indoor waterparks, speedways, museums, historic forts, theatres, Niagara Falls casino packages, nature trails and farm-to-table cuisine.
Throw in some spectacular sandy beaches along the shores of Lakes Erie and Ontario, and it becomes easy to see how Niagara has earned its reputation as a classic family destination.
Where is the Niagara Region?
The Niagara Region stretches from the Niagara Escarpment to the shorelines of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie to the world-famous Horseshoe Falls.
The region is about a 90-minute drive from downtown Toronto and is connected to the U.S. via the Queenston Lewiston Bridge, the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls and Peace Bridge in Fort Erie. Niagara is best explored by car, although bike and e-bike tours are also available.
