Planning a getaway? Well, you don’t have to travel too far to be whisked away to somewhere beautiful. Niagara-on-the-Lake is often said to be one of the prettiest towns in Ontario, and it lives up to its reputation.

Located in the Niagara region, this waterfront town is bursting with old-world charm.

It is a well-preserved 19th-century village, featuring storybook-worthy heritage homes and boulevards lined with boutiques, restaurants, and attractions.

This picturesque town is beautiful in every season, from the bloom of spring to the first snowfall of the holiday season.

There is so much to do in the town and the surrounding region.

You’ll want to dedicate an afternoon to shopping and lunch in the heritage district — you can also treat yourself to the relaxing hydrotherapy circuit and treatment at the newly-opened 124 on Queen Hotel & Spa.

After a dreamy night at one of the town’s many hotels or bed and breakfasts, you will find plenty of options for brunch, delicious coffee, and even high tea.
