  • Totally gnarly homestead and I wish we had gone in season... looking forward to going in the summer and meeting Laura Secord and tasting her world famous Superkid ice cream. That ice cream won us the war of 1812.
  • A historic national site cannot miss if you enjoy colonial history of Canada. lots of parking and big clean bathroom. A favourite place for cyclist to stop by for a break and enjoy refreshments and great selection of ice cream. Oh did I mention they are very generous with the scoop size of the ice cream. Yum! Yum!
  • A quaint attraction with an over priced gift shop attached. Great little spot to get a bit of history. The guides didn't bother to hide their frustration at the Laura Secord Chocolate co. who had owned the homestead previously and spun quite a few yarns to unsuspecting tourists. You could also hear the pride in their voices when they talked about Laura's journey, and the subsequent defeat of the Americans (at least in the battle of Beaverdams). The Laura Secord Homestead is a refreshing bit of old fashioned charm, away from the flashy tourist spots near the falls.
  • We just finished a tour with Amanda. She is great. Very knowledgeable, animated and passionate with her story telling. I highly recommend the tour. Wonderful history on the War of 1812.
  • Always stop here for ice cream treat or souvenir. Love this shop. Always getting new items and staff friendly.

Where to stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake abounds with accommodations that can be more affordable than those just a few minutes south in the city of Niagara Falls. The town's grid-like streets offer an array of choices, with Mary Street, Mississauga Street, and Queen Street among the most popular. If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious and don't mind paying extra, stay near the lakeshore and enjoy waterfront views from your bed and breakfast.
