The Niagara-on-the-Lake Effect

"The Niagara-on-the-Lake Effect" is a feeling that many people describe as unique to Niagara-on-the-Lake. It's a feeling that's difficult to put your finger on, but it all starts with our agricultural roots, stunning vistas and our Heritage District — the centre of the Town's shopping area, home to Landmark Shops.

The Heritage District showcases the Town's history and the buildings tell the story of the architecture of years past. Enjoy the live view you see here and contact our helpful staff at to make your own plans to visit and experience it in person.
