If you are visiting the Niagara Falls area this is a great place to unwind away from the crowds, take a break, and get a little nature in. It is located in the Niagara on the Lake area were there is great shopping and eating, similar to the Hamptons on Long Island but much more down to earth.

I have had numerous sailing holidays on Lake Ontairio. It is truly a most civilised place to chill and relax. It's so big, beautiful and full of life. I have a couple of wonderful Canadian pals who out of Hamilton have a boat. This gives unique access for us as to the best of my knowledge there are no holiday... More

I've spent lots of time in this park over the years. I use it to walk from the board walk up to stores on Queen. I use it when I access the library. I use it for a shortcut to the dentist's office. I skate at the rink. We played for hours on end with our daughter in the playground... More

It takes your breath away, by the sheer size, variety of activity on it's shores, particularly Naigara on the lake, wineries, cafes and fruit gardens. In fact the drive from Toronto, on the inner road (not th main highway) is the most scenic, with golf courses offering endless vistas of greenery-the most soothing eye "cure". Wander around the cafes and... More

As a fellow traveler, having been to over 20 countries in the passed 2 years, it has always been important for me to figure out how to get the most realistic cultural experience I can in each country. I thought I could share with all of you my experience with VoulezVousDiner! It's similar to Air B&B if you have heard... More

On a clear day, you can feel like you're on the Pacific, and on a stormy day, you can feel like you're on the North Sea. Lake Ontario is always changing with the seasons and its many locations along its shore are just as diverse. Picturesque Niagara on the Lake is so beautiful that it was used in a movie... More
