The town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is a beautiful place all year round. One of the most magical times is during the winter season. We have visited a few times during the ice wine festival as well as to see the Christmas lights.
One store located on Queen street celebrates Christmas all year round. Just Christmas has everything you could need for holiday decorating. Even a C3-P0 wearing a scarf to keep him warm.
Right next door to Just Christmas is the court house and in the middle of the street stands the memorial clock tower. They both look nice all lit up during the night.
Out front of the court house stands a mailbox marked Letters for Santa. You can put your Christmas wishes inside.
Two toy soldiers stand guard outside of the court house keeping a watchful eye on everyone. You had better not be naughty while mailing your letter to Santa.
On the next block stands the Prince of Wales hotel. The Victorian hotel has seen many winters since it was built in 1864. It looks lovely in a small blanket of snow.
As you enter the Prince of Wales to warm up you are greeted by another toy soldier. This one is most likely a member of the royal guard.
The lobby of the Prince of Wales is always inviting. At Christmas time the sculptures and stained glass are joined by poinsettias, wreaths and decorations.
Looking out the window across the street at snow covered Simcoe Park makes us feel like we have entered a warm, fuzzy Christmas movie.
Out front of the hotel a trolley arrived to keep guests warm while they travel around town.
Around town you can visit the gazebo that sits beside Lake Ontario.
Enjoy the solitude of an empty road surrounded by snow covered trees.
And of course warm up a bit while you enjoy some ice wine at one of the many wineries found in the region. Niagara-on-the-Lake truly is a winter wonderland.
