The Niagara Parkway runs from Fort Erie in the south through Chippawa where Betty’s Restaurant is located, through Niagara Falls where you can park to enjoy and take photos of all of everything the Falls area has to offer, and on to historical Queenston and Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Then follow Lakeshore Road out of Niagara-on-the-Lake right into St.Catharines and Port Dalhousie.
A beautiful drive of perhaps three to as many hours as you like, depending on what you do.
Stop along the way for lunch and dinner, sample our wines, theatre in Niagara-on-the-Lake and, with ice cream cone in hand, take in the sunset as you roll out on the pier into Lake Ontario at Port Dalhousie.

Open air theatre with concerts and special events held throughout the summer.
