Fort George Ghost Tour
Local legend suggests that Niagara-on-the-Lake is a haunted town, with many reports of paranormal activity happening at the Fort George National Historic Site – the site of several deadly battles during the War of 1812. You can find out about the hauntings first-hand by touring the fort by candlelight at night, with guided ghost tours being offered on Sundays at 8:30pm from May to June. The fort also offers special Halloween ghost tours in October and additional tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July to August.
A great way to get active while exploring some of Niagara’s best wineries is by embarking on a winery bike tour. Available through a number of different tour companies, cycling around Niagara-on-the-Lake and stopping for wine and food at award-winning wineries has become a popular and quintessential Niagara experience. Some popular winery bike tours include “the ultimate wine, beer & foodie bicycle tour” offered by Grape Escape Wine Tours, the “afternoon wine tour” from Zoom Leisure, and numerous Sip n Cycle tours offered by Niagara Wine Tours International.
