Due to its mild climate and number of natural lakes, Niagara-on-the-Lake has become a top wine-producing area, particularly of ice wine. Visitors flock to the town for wine tasting weekends, garden and home tours, and antiquing. The romance of the area is palpable and makes it an ideal getaway for couples and girls' weekends.

Best Time to Visit Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON

Niagara-on-the-Lake appeals to visitors throughout the year, but if you enjoy cultural events and wine, your best bet is September and October. You'll delight in the fall foliage, winery harvests and tastings, as well as the end of the theater season. Weather is pleasant, ranging from the low 70s to mid-40s. Cooler temperatures bring down hotel prices as well. As the fall goes on, discounts grow. However, if you plan to visit on the weekend or during the summer during this spectacular time, it's important to note that many hotels require a two-night stay.

Summers are wildly popular because of the enjoyable weather. Average highs are in the low 80s. August brings the Peach Festival, where you can sample some of the deliciousness that gives this area its reputation as an agricultural hot spot. You'll pay top dollar for a trip to this region during the summer, but it's worth it.

January is a beautiful time to visit because of the ice formations on the water and nearby falls. It's also the time the region celebrates its bounty at the Ice Wine Festival. While the ice and snow are beautiful, the temperatures are very cold. If you plan on visiting nearby Niagara Falls, be aware that extremes in temperatures can shut down boat tours and other ways to experience the falls in all their majesty.

For good discounts on hotel rooms and better weather than winter, spring is your best bet. However, temps are still chilly, so you'll miss out on the growing season and all the colorful blooms and events that come along with that time of year in other destinations.

The average hotel rate for a three-star hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake is around $160 a night before taxes. July and August are peak months, and you can expect hotel prices to increase by about $50 a night.

Top Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON Destinations

Niagara-on-the-Lake is a trip back in time without having to sacrifice amenities. From the delightful mix of Georgian, Victorian, and Coastal architecture to the immense flower baskets that hang from porches and light poles, Niagara-on-the-Lake provides a delicious incentive to slow down and enjoy the scenery.

Antiquing, wine tasting, strolling through boutiques, and enjoying decadent spa services are high on most visitors' lists of top activities. This beautiful town is also rich in the arts. Its renowned Shaw Festival attracts theater-goers from around the world interested in seeing the top talent that flocks here for the season. The festival sprung from humble beginnings in 1962, where four performances of two shows took place in the Assembly Room of the historic Court House. Today, the shows run in four venues; the Festival Theatre, the Court House Theatre, the Royal George Theatre, and the Studio Theatre.

The Shaw Festival produces 10 to 12 plays each season. Its 725 performances entertain about a quarter-of-a-million people each year. Each theater is selected with the same careful consideration that the Festival uses in deciding which productions to do, as each space lends something to the performance and experience.

But Niagara-on-the-Lake's charm is not all about theatrical performance. History comes alive in the town's numerous restored homes, many of which have been transformed into romantic inns; Fort George and Brock's Monument, the Laura Secord Homestead, and the Lincoln Welland Regiment Museum.
