Charming Collection of Small Shops

An eclectic group of small shops, from candy to kitchenware to home decor to ladies wear. A fun short stroll across the street from the canal as you go from shop to shop.

Had a very nice view of the water and the lift bridge. There weren't many ships when we were there. There is some shopping along the same street as that. The shopping was very good. The view was beautiful!

Great place to watch boats and fish. I caught a wide variety of fish there in a matter of 45min. I wasn't keeping any fish on our trip. I wish.

There are benches along the promenade where you can enjoy your ice cream cone or other delicious treat from Candy Safari while watching ships pass through the locks or just sit and enjoy the scenery.

An excellent location to base your visit of Port Colborne from. This area is close to convenient parking and a variety of restaurants and shops. The walkway along the Welland Canal is a great place to see ships entering and exiting the canal. All good.

The Promenade is part of the walking,biking and hiking trail on the North Shore. It is well maintained by the city. Great shopping for food and gifts are next to the Promenade. See boats including lakers, ocean going ships, pleasure craft and cruise ships from around the world. Plenty of benches to enjoy the view.

My wife and I love this little stretch, most famous for it's jammed packed streets during "Canal Days". It's one of those hidden gems, it has all the quaint little shops places to eat a beautiful view of the canal without hordes of people!
