The Niagara Peninsula in Southern Ontario lays between the southern shore of Lake Ontario and the northern shore of Lake Erie. With the mighty Niagara River on its eastern border the peninsula stretches 90 km (55 miles) to Hamilton in the west.
The natural setting for the orchards, vineyards and wineries along the Niagara Escarpment, the region features many destinations of historical significance. The Niagara Parkway was described by Sir Winston Churchill as "the prettiest Sunday afternoon drive in the world."
Excursions are within reach of the beautiful Kawartha, Haliburton and Muskoka regions of central Ontario, the rolling countryside of southwestern Ontario to the Blue Mountains of Collingwood and up to Tobermory at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula.Within an easy day's drive across the International border are the picturesque Finger Lakes region of New York state, the winding roads of Pennsylvania and Ohio and the unique New England states.
