As the hot days of Summer fall behind us, Niagara becomes a season of flourishing color and rustic beauty as we embark on the Fall season. Taking a drive gives visitors a clear and captivating look at everything our region offers.
A Drive Through Wine Country
Harvest season in Niagara runs from September to November, and the journey throughout the Niagara Peninsula is rich with decadent scenery and beautiful backdrops. Fall brings us the Grape & Wine Festival and the “Taste the Season” signature event which occurs on weekends in November at over 15 wineries throughout the region. Niagara’s wine route extends from Niagara-on-the-Lake straight through to the beautiful town of Grimsby. Start your journey along the Niagara Parkway through Queenston and the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, and along Lakeshore Road. With over 80 wineries, a drive through wine country is a feast for your senses.
The Treasure Hunting Road Trip
With its origins rich in history from the War of 1812, Niagara’s Daredevils and tightrope walkers, hydro-electric generating stations, and Niagara’s role in the Underground Railroad, it’s no wonder that antiquing within Niagara unearths a treasure trove of relics to be discovered!
Make it a day trip of exploring through Niagara’s hidden gems for some vintage finds. We compiled a list of amazing Antique stops, in which you can easily spend an entire day winding through our lush hills, gardens, and countryside views on your way to finding a special souvenir.
It’s no secret that Fall is a captivating time of the year for photo-taking opportunities, but it’s also one of the best months to travel due to cheaper hotel rates and less crowds.
Autumn is the prime time to visit Niagara’s historical landmarks. Enjoy the crisp Fall air and wide-open scenery as you visit famous historical sites such as Brock’s Monument, Chippawa Battlefield, Fort George, and Old Fort Erie.
If your mission is to take in all the abundant colours, the landscape to view the landmarks and monuments serves up stunning vistas set against the backdrop of the twisting Niagara River. Make a pitstop at Dufferin Islands which explodes with colour every Autumn.
