The Recreation Bike Trail, A Whirlpool, Golf Courses & The Floral Clock
There are bike and running paths, a whirlpool, woods, cliffs, a river, golf courses, B&Bs, and is adjacent to a wine country and one of the World’s Natural Wonders of the World.
It’s the Niagara Parkway, a spectacular stretch of roadway leading from Niagara Falls to the quaint town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, which itself leads to the Niagara Wine Country.It add to the beautiful bounty that is the Niagara Falls area in Ontario, Canada.
The are also places for bird watching, the Butterfly Conservatory, a public golf course and one stop-for-a-picture place, the Floral Clock, a clock made of flowers where every tourist stops to snap a few photos.
Running parallel to the parkway is the Niagara River Recreation Trail, a running and bike path (note, it is not designed for rollerblading).
There are also dozens of Bed & Breakfast Inns along the way in converted houses across the parkway from the river.
It seems to go on, and on and on, but in reality is 35 miles (56 km). It is a two-lane road, ideal for a casual afternoon drive. It’s well worth extending a Niagara Falls vacation by a day to explore this area.
Time it to have lunch at one of the many restaurants in Niagara-on-the-Lake, then make the slow return to Niagara Falls in time to see the rainbow over the Falls as late afternoon gives way to early evening.
