Great Summer Activities on Niagara on the Lake

There is no doubt about it that Niagara on the Lake shines in the summer.  The sunshine and warm weather are great catalysts for many of the activities that make this area one of the most visited spots in all of Canada.  One visit to the region during the summer, and you will fall in love with not only the many different activities but the region itself—as well as the friendly and welcoming people that call Niagara on the Lake home.  Here is a brief list of many great summer activities that abound in the region, including how to get in touch about Niagara on the Lake real estate.

The Shaw Festival

A trip to Niagara on the Lake would not be complete without taking in one of the many different shows that are brought to you by the Shaw Festival, a Niagara on the Lake fixture that has been part of the region for decades.  The festival is a celebration and tribute to the late Bernard Shaw meant to stir and provoke the mind and the soul by providing entertaining and exhilarating theatre performances.

Every year the festival produces between 10 and12 different plays that bring scores of people to the region to marvel in the not-for-profit theatre company’s works.  Some of the highlights for this year are Alice in Wonderland and Sweeney Todd.  For more information—and how to get tickets—please visit the Shaw Festival website at


The largest draw to the Niagara region is without a doubt its wineries.  This area is famous for its wines and produces some of the finest wines in not only Canada but all of North America and arguably the world.  A wine tour or two is a must if you are planning on coming to the area during the summer.  Almost all of the wineries cater to the tourist industry, and will happily show you where and how your favourite wines are produced.

The Great Outdoors

Early summer is a great time to get out and stretch your legs in one of the many great trails in the area.  The Niagara Park Recreation Trail is another must see while you are in the area.  This trail offers stunning views of the Niagara River, and has many great places for a picnic lunch.  The trail also offers great cycling opportunities as it stretches for over 50km and has great historic spots of interest along the way such as Fort Eerie.
