Birthday - Day Trip

I'm trying to plan a day trip to NOTL for my girlfriend's birthday. We are both in our early 20's.

I was thinking maybe some shopping, but need some suggestions for other things to do... She's not a wine drinker, so I'm trying to look for some other suggestions of nice places to visit for her birthday.

Also are there any nice places to take a small hike to see the fall foliage?

As for lunch, I was thinking of going to the Stone Road Grille. (based on the reviews)

Thank you for any help!

Hi Weirdwing,


And I see you are also brand new to TripAdvisor... so a BIG Welcome Aboard as well !!

You haven’t said when you’ll be visiting (although with the reference to Fall Foliage, I assume soon).

NOTL is known most for…

*Award Winning Country Inns, Boutique Hotels and B&BS

*An assortment of Spas

*Shaw Theatre Festival (season ends October 31st)

*Interesting Shopping (Arts, Crafts, Clothing, Accessories, Homegoods etc)

*Art Galleries

*Antique Stores

*War of 1812 Sites

*Underground Railway Sites

*National Historic Sites

*Gorgeous Homes (Best collection of Victoria Architecture 1815 to 1880s)

*Ontario’s Premier Wineries (over 150 between NOTL and Stony Creek)


*Amazing Eats at Restaurants with some of the Best Chefs in Canada

And of course there is always a drive thru the Vineyards & Orchards, or out to the Welland Canal, or along the Niagara Parkway to see that other BIG Attraction just down the road… and natural wonder of the world... Niagara Falls (always romantic).

For Fall Foliage a nice spot is Balls Falls Conservation Area over in Vineland… or a horseback ride along The Escarpment with Niagara Riding Stables.
