Perched along the shore where the mighty Niagara River meets Lake Ontario, the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake offers a totally different--and much more relaxed--experience than the nearby tourist hotspot of Niagara Falls. Here, Victorian houses open out onto flower-lined streets as horse-drawn carriages roll by. And the promise of high-caliber theater and wine draws people from around the world to the Shaw Festival Theatre and the surrounding wine region. Charming, small boutique inns and B&Bs dominate the lodging scene here, in keeping with the small-town vibes. For chain-hotel options, look 30 minutes down the road in the town of Niagara Falls.
