Fort George National Historic Site

Facing both the shores of Lake Ontario and the banks of the Niagara River, Fort George is located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, in southern Ontario.

Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory

While known for the incredible waterfalls, the Niagara Falls area is home to a wonderful attraction. The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory features more than 2,000 tropical butterflies from forty-five species, including the Blue Morpho, Gulf Fritillary, Monarch, and Banded Orange. This southern Ontario conservatory is located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens.

Visitors have enjoyed strolling through the 11,000 square foot climate-controlled greenhouse, on self-guided tours, since its opening in 1996. This impressive greenhouse is the largest glass-enclosed conservatory for butterflies, in America. Take your time walking on the 600 feet of pathways, past the waterfall, while capturing pictures of the free-flying butterflies. 

Niagara Riding Stables

Recreational enthusiasts have a wonderful variety of options to choose from to see the beautiful, wooded area of the southern Ontario Niagara region. A wonderful viewpoint of the area is from the back of a horse, from Niagara Riding Stables. Your horseback experience allows you to travel slowly along the Niagara Escarpment, while taking in all of the beauty of the peaceful surroundings.

Schedule approximately fifty minutes for a guided trail ride and be sure to bring your camera, to capture the Canadian wildlife you spy along the trail. Relax and enjoy the calm ride, as the horse saunters down the path. After a fun day on the horse, make a full day of it while exploring the rest of Niagara On The Lake.
