Niagara-on-the-Lake is a charming town surrounded by lavender fields, vineyards and a spectacular view of Lake Ontario. On a clear day you can see the Toronto CN Tower in the distance.
First stop, on the edge of town, is the fragrant Lavender Boutique. The sight of purple and the scent of lavender fills the senses.
My son noticed the shop owner was in one of the photos on display. Melissa greets you with her lovely smile and a sample of delicious lavender cookies. YUM!!
I bought some edible lavender to sprinkle on my toasted bagel for breakfast, lavender tea with a wonderful blend, lavender lotion, lavender body wash and lavender sachets for my drawers and pillow. You can order online.
The Trisha Romance Gallery, in the heart of the town, is a magical wonderland of romance. Trisha’s beautiful paintings adorn the house. This Victorian house was once her home, but now showcases her unique nostalgic artwork and her daughter, Tanya Peterson’s amazing paintings.
Strolling around town is like stepping back in time: flowers to enjoy, benches to relax, shops to explore, fine dining at the Prince of Wales Hotel (we went to Tim Hortons and I had a veggie panini). This is a fantastic place for a day trip or weekend getaway.
A great view of Fort Niagara, USA from the sandy shore of Lake Ontario.
There are several wineries to go for wine-tasting, Frogpond Farm has organic wine.
Time to relax and smell the lavender!
