You can start your visit in a little museum then head over to the house with a tour guide. The guides are great. So personable & informative. They dress in period clothing. A must stop while in the area. Also the gift shop has super...More

For those of us who though that Laura was somehow involved in the development of chocolate in North america, it was quite informative. Certainly a glimpse intot he past. Great artifacts and information, worth a visit.

The War of 1812 has an unlikely hero with Laura Secord, a wife and mother, who walked 18 hours to warn the British of an impending American invasion. The tour of the family homestead is well done, and guided tours are the only way to...More

Worth a short stop to take a tour of the Laura Secord Homestead and revisit a piece of history--imagine how she walked to Beaver Dams from this location!

Laura Secord is a hero who saved many lives back in 1812. This is an important part of the Canadian history. Too bad the Homestead has an entrance fee as it should be free for everyone to see.

Decided to go on the short guided tour ($9.50 each) and it was worth it! (Tours are every half hour in the summer). Learned a lot more than if we had just walked around the museum. Such an amazing heroine and story!

Any great views at Niagra on the Lake - other suggestions? (7 Replies)
We have two days in Niagra Falls so one day I want to take my girls to Laura Secord Homestead and McKenzie Printery. I thought I would then head to Niagra on the Lake and maybe have a gelato or similar and enjoy the pretty town. Should we take a carriage ride or is there a scenic spot we should head to instead or something else. This would be on the 25/08 and we will be on foot. We are not interested in wineries. I also ruled out a bike ride as my eldest can't ride well and its the...More

When you say you will be 'on foot', do you mean you won't have a car? There are a couple of parks on the Lake Ontario shore that, on clear days, offer views of the Toronto skyline across the lake: Queen's Royal Park and Ryerson Park (which is a little bit of a walk). Also, closer to the shops, is Simcoe Park
