Make the most of your visit to Fort Erie, Port Colborne and Wainfleet by experiencing everything that comes your way. Embrace new challenges, discover hidden gems, and head to bed at night feeling great about what you’ve seen and done.
Sun & Sand
Our beaches aren’t just for building sandcastles, long walks and wave jumping in the summer sun. Fall is a perfect time to breathe in the fresh air, bring a yoga mat, or spend an afternoon skipping rocks. When winter’s extreme temperatures hit, the ice formations found on the beach are stunning works of art. So many beaches, so little time.
Trails & Cycling
On two wheels or two feet, take to the trails or enjoy the waterfront pathways as you explore somewhere new. You will be pleasantly surprised to know many of the paths and trails are mostly paved and geared for multi-use. For cyclists looking for rugged off-road terrain, we have you covered with adventure to suit all levels of experience and stamina.
Use online trail maps to enjoy a day offline and off road. Refuel and recharge at craft breweries, patios, and waterfront restaurants. There is a route for every cyclist and endurance level.
The journey to your destination starts by following a popular trail or forging your own path on paved or natural routes. Enjoy the seasonal colours, fresh coastal air and boost that step count!
Food & Drink
Classic seaside fish & chips, Asian fusion, authentic Italian pasta, gelato and more will fuel your days and nights. Choose from waterfront restaurants, downtown eateries, beach cafes serving up Niagara’s seasonal best. Enjoy adult beverages as you explore the craft beer, cider and spirits scene. Award-winning VQA wine from across Niagara is served in the South Coast, offering plenty of local options to quench your thirst and appeal to your inner foodie.
Time to set sail, power up and check the wind velocity if water adventures are what you seek. Windsurf at Gravelly Bay. Jet ski down the Niagara River. Fish in Lake Erie. Sail around Point Abino. Kayak at the world-class Welland International Flatwater Centre and channel your inner champion!
Heritage & Culture
Step back in time to 1812 to see mock battles, musket demonstrations and preserved field artillery. Then, journey through time to pioneer days, historic tea rooms and the Freedom Trail. History buffs and culture seekers will enjoy marine heritage, performances at the Sanctuary Centre for the Arts, exploring murals, sculptures and live music throughout the summer and fall. Capture a moment in time, up close and in colour.
