Things to do in Niagara

Welcome to Beautiful Niagara

Niagara District Airport is located in the heart of the Niagara Peninsula, conveniently close to an abundance of world famous attractions including premier golf courses, wineries, theatre and the arts, country inns and hotels, historical sites, casinos, the Welland Canal and of course, the Niagara Falls themselves.

There are festivals held in communities across the peninsula throughout the year celebrating the arts, food, culture, heritage and more. Some notable examples are Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Shaw Festival Theatre and Niagara Falls Winter Festival of Lights. Check the Niagara Festivals and Events website for listings by month and location

In addition to these local attractions, Niagara District Airport is just over an hour's drive away from the world class shopping, sports and theatre of Toronto, and the major league sports attractions of Buffalo, NY.
