A water lover's fantasy land with the added bonus of outdoor concerts, festivals, regattas and boat races, Saint Catharines is alive whatever the season of the year. From wine festivals to maple syrup harvests, whether you are a die-hard foodie or outdoor junkie looking for an adrenalin rush, you will find something to do. Known as "The Garden City" because of having 1,000 acres of parks, gardens and trails, it is the central heart of the Niagara Region. Manufacturing is the backbone of its economic base with General Motors of Canada being the city's largest employer. Saint Catharines has a history going back to the late 18th Century and the city is shaped by its historical architecture juxtaposed with a dynamic modern vibe in stunning scenic surrounds.
You can take a walk down the ghostly past in one of the historical districts and visit the Saint Catharines' Museum, the Victoria Lawn Cemetery or the Underground Railroad site that saw many freedom seekers escaping slavery. There are numerous heritage properties such as the Morningstar Mill, the Lakeside Park Carousel, the City Hall and the Merritton Town Hall to meander around to glean a peek back in time. The 4 Welland Canals are a definite must see for the old anchor bollards, canal walls, locks and the boats sitting on the canal's water.
For a day away from the bustle of the city, take to the wine route or get serious and walk along the Waterfront Trail that runs from Niagara to Quebec along the lake. The harbor front village of Port Dalhousie, home to the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta, has quaint streets lined with shops, cafes and eclectic boutiques. It is also where you will find the smallest jailhouse in Ontario. Another must do is to enjoy the center of the downtown city where there is mega shopping for those that must shop, one of the oldest farmers' markets to explore and a plethora of restaurants to choose from.
