Beyond the Falls
With more than 30 miles of pristine shoreline along Lake Ontario, world-class sportfishing, derbies and tournaments are a favorite here. East of the Falls, the Village of Wilson is known for yacht clubs, marinas and spectacular views. Nestled between the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario you’ll find the region’s best wineries along the Niagara Wine Trail. Our boutique wineries offer a diverse selection of traditional vinifera styles, native, late harvest and ice wines, as well as unique styles such as award winning fruit wines and meads (honey wine). Lockport still retains its 19th century charm, and many of the locks continue to function as they did over 150 years ago. A collection of artifacts are at the Niagara County Historical Society.
Just seven miles north of the Falls are the villages of Lewiston and Youngstown. You’ll enjoy waterfront parks and the splendor of the lower Niagara River throughout the area. The Niagara Power Project’s Power Vista features exhibits on energy, electricity and local history. Youngstown was one of the first settlements to grow outside Old Fort Niagara, the site of historic battles and sieges, trading and conquest.
