Welcome to Fort Erie!

In 1943, Sir Winston Churchill drove down the Niagara River Parkway. Impressed by the majesty of the Niagara River, he said it was the best Sunday afternoon drive in the world. The road still follows the Niagara River from Fort Erie all the way to Niagara-on-the-Lake and takes a detour into nearby wine country. For those staying in Fort Erie, the history of Canada is an an open book. A critical strategic point, Fort Erie abounds with the remnants of conflict and trade. The original Old Fort Erie played a dramatic role in the War of 1812 and today offers a glimpse to those days through re-enactments. There is also a rail museum and the Ridgeway Battlefield Museum. Straying a little from the serious topic of history, visitors will find the open and vast waters of Lake Erie a tantalizing mix of cool water for play and hot sandy beaches for relaxing.
