On the Niagara Peninsula where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario is Niagara-on-the-Lake, an important area in the history of Canada.
Niagara-on-the-Lake is home to the oldest Anglican and Catholic churches in Ontario, and the oldest surviving golf course in North America. Today, Niagara-on-the-Lake draws tourists with quaint colonial-style buildings, the Shaw Festival, Fort George, beautiful wineries, an outlet mall on the highway, and great proximity to Niagara Falls.
Visitors to Niagara-on-the-Lake can experience its agricultural roots, stunning vistas and the Heritage District — the centre of the Town’s shopping area, home to Landmark Shops. The Heritage District showcases the Town’s history and the buildings tell the story of the architecture of years past.
