The Niagara Parkway from Niagara-On-The-Lake to Niagara Falls is a lovely scenic and fairly quiet drive along the Niagara River (with views and bridges across to the USA) with a bike path alongside. There a scenic lookouts, attractions such as the gondola ride over the Whirlpool, an Art Gallery and Museum, Tea Room, a couple of Inns, some shops SEVERAL Wineries with Tastings including Ice Wine. Brock's Monument National Historic Site on the Queenston Heights, historic Fort George National Historic Site, Laura Secord Homestead and other Sites (all the National Sites have free admission in 2017) and of course the Falls.

The Niagara Parkway takes you north towards Niagara on the Lake and south to Fort Erie and either way it is such a pleasant drive. There are very few other cars on the road, no trucks or vans and all along the Parkway are places for you to stop to enjoy the view, have a picnic, observe nature and to just make the most from the drive. The busiest part of the Niagara Parkway is Niagara Falls. You go under the Rainbow Bridge and Peace Bridge and all through Niagara Parklands.

Beautiful birds such as swans duck geese owls etc. Gorgeous scenic drive. Pretty in the winter time as well as spring summer or fall.

After the falls, drive toward Niagara On The Lake via the Niagara Parkway, which goes along the Niagara River on the Canadian side. In the spring, plenty of deer with fawns. On the driver's side, look for the unexpected huge Temple of the Ten Thousand Buddhas. Hidden inside the Botanical Gardens is the Butterfly conservatory ($) with hundreds of butterflies flying around, good gift shop. When you get to the traffic circle, keep to the right where there is a rest stop to view the Niagara River. In the fall, lots of stands with local fruits and jams, plus pumpkins! Continue down the hill and after approx. 7 minutes, watch for the teeny white cathedral on the left.

Just before you turn right and head down towards Niagara on the Lake and the many Wineries is a Scenic Lookout that we have driven past many times without stopping. We happened to have relatives from England visiting and turned off hoping they would enjoy this different view of the Niagara River. We had no sooner parked than a bus and 4 other vehicles pulled off. The view was spectacular, the leaves had just started to turn and the American side of the river a great backdrop . Don't miss it. it truly is one of the best vantage points along teh river.
