St. Catharines Travel Guide
Welcome to St. Catharines!
St. Catharines, known throughout Ontario as the —Garden City—, is a lively community located to the north of Niagara Falls. Mirroring Toronto on the shore of Lake Ontario, St. Catharine's draws much of its character from its visual appeal: lush parkland, colourful floral gardens, historic Victorian buildings and sparkling waters. Chock full of activities and brimming with personality, this city attracts a wide gamut of people. The St. Catharines Museum offers visitors a glimpse back in time and an opportunity to further explore the Underground Railroad, the sport of lacrosse and other topics of interest that were integral to the development of the region. Stroll down the city's historic downtown, visit a winery, play at the waterfront, relax at a spa, participate in a festival—but above all else, enjoy the friendly atmosphere and small town air. This city's unmistakable energy calls visitors back time and time again.
The Welland Canal is one of Ontario's most impressive man-made structures, circumnavigating Niagara Falls through a series of eight locks.
