This beautiful and historic town used to be home for Ontario’s parliament and it has the distinction of having the world’s first anti-slavery law passed here in 1793.

Niagara-on-the-lake offers many interesting attractions on the main street and surrounding area. Take a walk up and down the main street, admire the colonial architecture and explore the many rustic shops and eateries of this historic town.
