Here’s how to plan
your getaway to Niagara-on-the-Lake this holiday season.
1. The Annual Candle Light Stroll starts at dusk on Friday December 1st with everyone lighting a candle in front of the clock tower and walking the neighbouring streets singing Christmas Carols. Take time to admire all the homes decorated for Christmas.
2. Looking for that special gift? No problem. Plan your weekend getaway to downtown Queen Street to shop local artisan one-of-a-kind gifts and treasures. Still want shopping, take a short drive to The Outlet Collection Mall for name brand items. After shopping head downtown to Queen Street for a relaxing dinner at one of our many restaurants and pubs.
3. December 1st & 2nd make sure you have your tickets to the Annual Holiday House Tour, featuring 6 professionally decorated homes. This is the 19th season for the Rotary which draws people from all over the province and parts of the USA.
4. To help you get into the holiday spirit, The Shaw Theatre presents ‘A Christmas Carol’ from Nov. 15th to Dec. 23. Get your tickets on-line or at the box office.
5. Niagara-on-the-Lake is home to some of the best wines and ice-wines in the country. Wineries are open everyday except Christmas Day for sampling and tours.
- 6. NOTL’s Santa Claus Parade is the largest parade in the region. Saturday Dec 9th the parade starts at 11am. Watch for marching bands from the province and the USA. Members of the Bed and Breakfast Association will be walking and handing out candy along the route.
7. Fort George is home to outdoor skating again this year (weather permitting). If you forgot your skates, don’t worry they rent skates. Treat your family to some hot chocolate too.
8. And if you still can’t find a gift for that very special person on your list, give them a gift card to demi’s place and let us take good care of them.
When Ed and I made the decision to move to Niagara-on-the-Lake and open a bed & breakfast we had no idea how much we were going to love this life style. The fact that we can spend so much time with our family while running the b&b is just a bonus. When our kids or our grandkids are visiting they frequently come into the dining room to say “good morning” and meet our guests. We consider ourselves very fortunate that our guests love interacting with them too.
Thank you to all the guests we met over this past year, it was our pleasure to have you stay at demi’s place and we hope you will choose to stay with us again.
We will be closed for a short time over the holidays for some family time and open again in the new year. Please check our booking calendar for our 2018 availability.
From our family to yours, have a safe and happy holiday,
Ed and Demi
