Niagara-on-the-Lake

If you are visiting Niagara Falls, do visit Niagara-on-the-Lake as well. This town's reputation as one of the prettiest towns in Canada really is remarkably true. I found the town absolutely charming and full of life. I enjoyed every minute walking around town, exploring the little shops and admiring the parks and flowers blooming everywhere.

Niagara-on-the-Lake has retained and kept its 19th century charm, and for a history buff like me, you'd be amazed to know that this friendly, touristy town played a major role in the forming of a new government, commerce, and the War of 1812. Reading the town's history makes me agree that "to understand the history of Niagara-on-the-Lake is to understand the history of early Ontario."

I really recommend this place as a must see.

 The town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is charming. Although small and finding a parking spot is a pain, it has this small town charm and beauty.

 Gardens and flowers bloom around town.

 Lots of lovely, cute shops

 This ice cream shop was so crowded so it must be really good. I was too impatient to wait in-line to try their ice cream.
 Shaw Cafe
 Fudge, fudge and fudge
 Town's post office

 If you don't want to walk, horse drawn carriages are available too.

 A wonderful Sunday to all!
