This beautiful and historic town used to be home for Ontario’s parliament and it has the distinction of having the world’s first anti-slavery law passed here in 1793. The architecture dates back to when the town was originally known as Newark - the first capital of Upper Canada in 1792. Niagara-on-the-lake offers many interesting attractions on the main street and surrounding area. Take a walk up and down the main street, admire the colonial architecture and explore the many rustic shops and eateries of this historic town. Some highlights on the main street are the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Greaves Jams & Marmalades, boutique ice cream shops and many other little family run boutique shops and cafes. The climate and conditions in the Niagara region make it one of the best areas in Canada for growing fruit and making wines, so we visit a boutique winery to learn about and taste the famous “Icewine.” Elegant, silky, lush, decadent - wine critics wear out thesauruses describing Icewine. Year after year, the Icewines made by the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake take the top awards at competitions around the globe. Approx. duration: 2 hours Adult Price: US$25.00
