Visiting the Bench
Start your day Niagara Benchlands adventure by heading to Revalee Brunch Café. A local favourite offering modern brunch fare and unique vegan dishes from Matcha Raspberry French Toast to Shakshuka, Revalee will easily become your new favourite brunch spot.
After brunch, stop and smell the roses at Niagara's Favourite family-run Flowershop, The Watering Can Flower Market. A flower shop like no other, the Watering Can is bursting with unique finds. While you stroll, pick up a warm drink and pastry made fresh in-house.
Once you've browsed the market, drive 12 minutes across the picturesque Niagara Escarpment to Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery for a walk-in tasting, including three tastings of sustainably grown wine plus a bag of buttery popcorn.
After lunch, check-in to Contemporary Vineyard Barn on the Water. A mix of modern architecture and old-world charm makes this stunning century old barn, perched over 16th Mile Creek, an inspired vacation destination and offsite work location.
On your way home, stop by Upper Canada Cheese Company to browse their wide range of award-winning cheeses made fresh with Guernsey milk and quality goat milk from local farms. A delicious souvenir from your adventure!
Visiting St. Catharines
Start your day with a walk through Short Hills Provincial Park. Sedimentary deposits and glacial till once filled this valley until Twelve Mile Creek sliced through, forming the “Short Hills.” Choose a route and enjoy a morning surrounded by nature!
After your nature bath, make the two-minute drive to Henry of Pelham winery for a private tour (reservations required, book here). Learn about the history of the winery, the grape lifecycle process, and much more while sipping on our 100% Estate grown wines.
Check in to The Juniper Inn, Niagara’s first boutique hotel where life’s little luxuries and respect for the environment meet. Located in Port Dalhousie on the shores of Lake Ontario, it's steps away from the Marina, beach, and Royal Henley rowing course.
Before you leave town pick up a warm drink at Balzac's Coffee Roasters. With your drink in hand, stroll the brand new pier while checking out the Lake Ontario waterfront views. On a clear day, you can see Toronto!
