This year’s Grape and Wine Festival was nothing short of spectacular; with vineyards from all over the Niagara Region featuring their best red and white collections. Dozens of travellers and locals gathered together to test many different types of wines (from Ice Wine to Merlot to Chardonnay).But that’s not all, the live entertainment and the beautiful weather sure made this festival run smoothly. But this Festival is not just for wine drinkers, this festival was able to provide a warm and safe place for children to play with its child friendly activities. Not to mention many venues...

Syndicate is a local bar located near the Best Western Plus Cairn Croft Hotel—owned by the popular Taps Brewery—which features Niagara made beer. From light lagers to delicious reds and cream ales, this bar and grill will change the way you enjoy beer. But this is not the only thing Syndicate offers; great dinner selections (3 courses) starting as low at $20, or try their other lunch and dinner selections. Hayley and I decided that we wanted wings and we must have chosen the right day because we were able to get 2lbs of medium wings with a pitcher or beer for $15 plus taxes. Now...

Take a hike down the Niagara Glen

Although Niagara Falls is a popular tourist destination, many tourists leave the area without truely seeing the beauty that lies here. But Hayley and I have had the pleasure of getting up close and personal with many Niagara sites that most people miss out on. One of those sites being the Niagara Glen. We were so excited to hike down one of the many trails towards the Niagara River. We were even lucky enough to see the Niagara Jet Boat pass through. We also thought it was appropriate to check out the waters temperature. It was a bit chilly, but totally worth it because it was extremely hot...

Mini-Putt at The Super Putt

Posted by on Sep 9, 2011

A date night turned intense mini-putt competition. My boyfriend and I decided it would be fun to play a round of mini-putt and the loser would buy the other a drink. He is an avid golfer and I am.. well.. not. I tried to warn him that I was surprisingly good at mini-putt but I don’t think he believed me until we started our game. The Super Putt offers 18 holes of different green layouts and is conveniently located down Lundy’s Lane from The BEST WESTERN PLUS Cairn Croft.  Adults play for $7 and Children 12 and under play for $6. The holes all have funny little names. My favourite,...
