5 Reasons to Explore the Niagara Region

We know just how lucky we are at FamFun Cabin Rentals to be located in one of the most beautiful places to visit in Southern Ontario, the Niagara Region. From winery tours, to brunching at cafes, to golfing and eating delicious fresh fruit, there’s no shortage of culture and exciting ways to explore the region. Here are five reasons why you should consider visiting Niagara with your family, your partner, or even as a solo traveler:

     1) Wine Tastings and Tours

With an abundance of Canada’s most renowned wineries, the Niagara Region is a fantastic place for wine tastings and tours. Niagara is host to wineries such as Henry of Pelham, Westcott Vineyards, Flat Rock Cellars and many more. These wines are great for bringing home to share with family and friends or to give as a gift. We highly recommend you bring back a nice bottle to the cabin when you book your stay with FamFun.

     2) The Watering Can Flower Market

One of the favourite places that we recommend our guests visit is The Watering Can Flower Market. This European inspired cafe and market is bursting with tropicals, cacti and succulents at every turn. They offer a delicious lunch, dessert and drink menu and also host a variety of interesting workshops – it’s an  essential fun-for-the-whole-family stop when visiting Niagara. Being a family-run business, it’s no surprise that The Watering Can is full of character and charm that is unique and memorable for all who visit.

     3) Top Notch Golf Courses

What better way to enjoy the sun than out on one of Niagara’s fantastic golf courses? You know what they say, a bad day of golf is better than a good day of work! There are many great courses to check out, including Sawmill Golf Course, Peninsula Lakes Golf Club and Twenty Valley Golf & Country Club, to name a few. Then when you’re finished for the day, you can head back to your cozy cabin to eat dinner on the deck and get the fire going for some roasted marshmallows!

     4) Local Fruit and Hiking Trails

There’s nothing quite like biting into a fresh, juicy Niagara peach! The region is home to some of the richest soil in the country, so we always recommend our guests check out the incredible fruit stands for an afternoon snack. Not only does Niagara have incredible farmland, but there are also beautiful trails for hiking. The Niagara Gorge is a must-see when visiting the region – the dense forest overlooks the rushing downstream of the iconic Niagara Falls! Whether you’re into bouldering or a casual hike, there’s  something for everyone at the trails along the Niagara River.

     5) Niagara Falls

We would be remiss if we didn’t recommend visiting the breathtaking Niagara Falls. It’s one of the most scenic places to visit not only in Canada, but in the entire world – it’s another must-see on our list! Niagara Falls consist of three waterfalls that span the border between Canada and the United States. The largest of the three is located on the Canadian side of the border and is called Horseshoe Falls. No matter the time of year, it’s a spectacular sight to behold. After you’ve seen the falls, there are tons of family-friendly attractions in Clifton Hill to check out before heading back to the cabin! With no shortage of places to see and things to do in Niagara, it’s a great place to visit with your loved ones. Why not book a cabin at FamFun so you can have a luxurious and comfortable place to stay while you explore the region?
