Great food .. Greek and Canadian dishes. On Sunday they have a nice special of Roast Beef dinner or Fish N Chips. Not too far from the Cottage, plus they have an outdoor patio. Nothing to see as far as views, but we like this place a lot , especially with family.

Adult eatery and bar. Busy local spot where food is very good and you don't feel like a tourist. It tends to get kind of noisy so if you want a quiet spot, this isn't it. Try the calamari app.

Entertainment & Activities
Live butterflies fly around you in this oversized terrarium. A great thing to do in the winter to escape the cold and feel like you are in the jungle. A nice experience but don't plan on more than about an hour here. In the better weather, you can extend your visit here by walking the parks surrounding the museum as they are part of the Horticulture School .

You can take the Spanish Aero Car over the Whirlpool rapids for some fantastic views. Once the water travels over the Falls, it continues down the Niagara River and the Whirlpool where the water swirls around before it continues its journey to Lake Ontario. Worth visiting !

You are on top of the escarpment and you hike down to the Niagara River. You must be in reasonable health and fitness to do this.. It's great with kids starting at ages 6 and up. It's Otherwise you may have to carry them at certain times. This is an experience the whole family will remember for years to come. It's not your typical experience... it can be dangerous and your kids must listen well. Please remember to pack water , snacks, sun lotion and hats ! A picnic lunch is also nice. This will take a half a day to enjoy properly. All the local people take their kids here.. we used to do it a few times a year.. the kids really love it ! Do not go in the water..the current is too swift.

Dufferin Islands Park is a great place to take kids for a nice easy walk ( no big hills to climb ) and there are ducks to feed and wildlife to observe. This park is behind the Horseshoe Falls and you can get some great views from behind the Falls for a different perspective. Free parking.
