Let's Travel Canada ~ Lake Ontario

#26 on the Let's Travel Canada list is Lake Ontario. That seems a bit of a broad geographical area so I'm going to make a list of the places I recall visiting along the shores of Lake Ontario.

Niagara-on-the-Lake ~

The Olde Angel Inn is the oldest operating inn in Ontario. The Olde Angel Inn was established in 1789 and rebuilt in 1815 after the War of 1812. We enjoyed a wonderful English meal there one day so I was shocked to see they have absolutely no idea how to make a proper cup of tea.

Wineries -- Lots and lots of wineries. We spent an afternoon on a wine tour at Chateau des Charmes where we learned how to taste wines and then enjoyed an afternoon of cheese and wine pairings and an extra bottle of brut (can't call it champagne because it isn't made in the Champagne region of France) because it was our anniversary. 

Heritage District -- loved the Niagara Apothecary Museum. So charming.

We've been to the Fort George National Historic Site of Canada several times in the past few years and each time we see and learn something different.

Brock's Monument National Historic Site at Queenston Heights Park

St. Catharines ~

Lakeside Park Carousel in the historic Port Dahousie district takes you back in time and still just 5 cents a ride

Jordan ~

As we cruise down the QEW we always stop to visit the Old Weasel

Stoney Creek ~

Memphis Fire Barbeque Company - amazing bbq food

Devil's Punchbowl Conservation Area

Battlefield House Museum & Park -- we've been there a few times

Hamilton ~

Dundurn Castle

so many waterfalls

HMCS Haida National Historic Site

GTA -- Toronto and its associated municipalities are so full of interesting places to see and things to do that it would be ridiculous to try and list them all in one blog post. That is a project for another day.

Colborne ~

Life is just not complete if you haven't visited the Big Apple

Kingston ~

the Waterfront

Fort Henry National Historic Site is so worth the trip. It has been beautifully restored

Iroquois ~

watching the ships pass through the lock

Morrisburg ~

Upper Canada Village

I know this isn't a full list. There is so much more that needs to be seen and done along the Lake Ontario north shore and hopefully we'll be traveling that way again soon.

In the meantime if you have any favourite places to add to this collection I would love to hear from you.  Please leave me a comment.
