A half hour drive from Niagara Falls this little town is great for window shopping and a stop before you hit one of the many Wineries or Farms in the area that offer different types of fruit.Recommended for:

This a charming little town that has maintained the architectural style of its 18th century roots. It has a bunch of craftsy boutiques, homey cafes and gourmet restaurants, and a good variety of accommodations. The best time of year to visit is summer-fall, when the flowers are in bloom and the Shaw Festival Theater is in full swing.Recommended for:

Skip the eateries and shops at Niagara Falls and drive down the road to this charming city right on the water. On the way you pass wineries and vineyards. Once there, stroll down main street. You'll find loads of ice cream and sweet shops, restaurants and boutiques. It can be pricey but it's utterly charming. We ate lunch at Cork's on the main street. They have a kids' menu and heated glassed-in outdoor seating, so you can watch the world go by even on a cold day.

This is a great small town to visit almost anytime of the year. The location at the end of a very pretty ride along the Niagara River changes with each season. Having lunch and shopping in the cute stores is a great way to spend some time in Canada other then the Falls.

stroll down the street and you will be surprise to find things that you don't expect to see: small shops and look for very rare and unusual things to get to remind you on this trip on the years to come. and if you are a wine enthusiast, this is one of new york's best wine village, look for the ice wine which they usually carry in any wine place. it is a little pricey but it is worth the price. if you plan to stay several nights, book a place in one of the inns here overlooking the falls and watch on your window the lights against the falls which is amazing during winter time.

This is a photogenic old town. Lots of old wooden buildings to photograph. Multitude of curio shops to walk in. A good way to spend an afternoon / evening. Best to leave car a bit outside the city in a parking lot and walk the half a mile to city.
