Sun & Sand
Our beaches aren’t just for taking leisurely strolls, playing in the waves, and building sandcastles. Take advantage of the crisp autumn air with an early morning yoga session, or spend the afternoon skipping pebbles. When the cold temperatures hit during the winter months, magnificent works of art can be seen in the ice sculptures that develop on the shore. So many beaches, so little time.
It’s time to launch the boat, crank up the engine, and enjoy the exhilaration of being on the water. Windsurf on Lake Erie. Glide across the Niagara River. Jet ski in Gravelly Bay. Paddle around Point Abino Lighthouse. Launch from the world-class Sugarloaf Marina and channel your inner angler. Don’t let the boundless options stop you from crafting your perfect itinerary.
Fort Erie offers a captivating blend of history, natural beauty, and vibrant community spirit. Whether you’re a history buff, an outdoor enthusiast, or simply seeking a relaxing getaway, Fort Erie has something to offer everyone!
A marine community through and through. Port Colborne is quiet in sound but loud with sights and activities. It’s easily one of the best places in the region to be mesmerized by up-close views of massive cargo ships.
