Sir Winston Churchill really knew what he was talking about when he said that River Road was “the prettiest Sunday drive in the world.” Taking an afternoon drive along River Road, the Niagara Parkway, on a fall afternoon is a scenic drive with the colors of fall all around you. It is a quiet drive with trees lining the road and small glimpses of the Niagara River between the trees. You can look up the long driveways to each of the wineries to see amazing estates and see the well maintained farm land that the Niagara farmers take so much pride in.
Although many people often don’t just go out to drive anymore, this drive is one that should definitely be taken. Whether you are driving to the Laura Secord homestead, Fort George or one of the many wonderful wineries that Niagara has, take in the beauty of Niagara on your journey there.
