Get the best of both at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Cairn Croft Hotel

Posted by on Dec 26, 2011

When it comes to the winter season there is just one thing I love….staying warm. But how do you stay warm in below zero temperatures? How about going for a swim? I know what you are thinking…”are you crazy?” In the courtyard of the Cairn Croft Hotel, you can enjoy swimming in the pool or relaxing in one of the two hot tubs available even on the coldest of days! Of course, this is made even better when you are surrounded by friends and enjoying one of the delicious cocktails and appetizers from the poolside bar. The Best Western Plus Cairn Croft is the perfect hotel...

Sledding at Fireman’s Park

Posted by on Dec 23, 2011

Looking for things to do in Niagara with the kids? Or maybe you are just looking for something to do with friends during the Winter season. Why not go sledding down at Fireman’s Park? For years this has been a popular hang out for families and teens to go sledding. Make sure to watch out for all the trees around, it’s best to try and spot a straight line down the hill with no trees. This is more so a problem on the steeper hill, so be careful! Another thing to watch out for–that I found out the hard way–is any snow jumps that people create that you can’t really notice...

Candlelight Stroll in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Posted by on Dec 2, 2011

With Christmas right around the corner, what a better way to get in the spirit then participating in the Candlelight Stroll in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Dozens of children and adults will gather in front of the Court House at 6:00pm and wait for the stroll to begin. Queen Street is blocked off and the Mayor will give his opening welcome. The streets become filled with light from the candles as the flame from the first candle is passed onto the next and the next and so on.  It is a guided tour through historical Old Town, with carolers singing your favourite holiday songs. This event has no...
