A Visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake

NOTLclocktowerWe had a wonderful weekend at Niagara-on-the-Lake. What a gorgeous town – their flower gardens, hanging baskets and planters are beautiful! The flowers are ahead of ours: they are a just a little further south and in that wonderful fruit belt growing region. The colours are fantastic!

We stayed at the Moffat Inn – nicely located halfway between the Shaw Festival Theatre and the Royal George Theatre – walking distance to both. It’s a quaint, very old inn: the room was small but comfortable. Unfortunately, the restaurant and pub were closed for renovations. For anyone contemplating a visit, there are several beautiful old inns, (some pricier than others) and many, many bed and breakfast homes.

Managed to visit a couple of wineries – this is easy because there must be a hundred, just around the edges of town. Lots to taste!

There are so many interesting shops along the street. Specialty shops like a Christmas store, clothes, accessories, books, bakery, etc. etc.

We had delicious meals at different restaurants. We particularly enjoyed eating on the patio overlooking Lake Ontario at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club —which they say is North America’s oldest golf club. Also enjoyed white sangria at Corks Restaurant and Wine Bar. Had good eggs Benedict for breakfast at Bistro Six-One.

On the drive home, we stopped at The Lake House Restaurant in Vineland, along the QEW. www.lakehouserestaurant.com .   We sat on the deck overlooking Lake Ontario – the lake was calm and beautiful blue. We had a view of the Toronto skyline, with the CN Tower clearly visible. Absolutely delicious dinners – Victor & I did our usual “eat half and switch” – at reasonable prices for such good fare.
