If you are staying in the Niagara Region of Ontario you should also spend some time for sightseeing. This can be very relaxing and does not cost very much.
One of the many tours which we recommend is along the Grand River.
This web site gives you a little impression what to expect and what you can do. It is up to you how much time you want to spend. One day or several days if you stay in certain places longer or participate in one of the offers activities.
I assume that you will start from the Niagara Falls area. For that reason our proposal for the tour begins in Maitland on Lake Erie where the Grand River ends.
The best way to reach Maitland is through Dunnville which means you have to drive this short distance twice.
For Dunnville we have created a separate web site.
Dunnville on the Grand River - a boat launch
But let us first visit Maitland. The lower picture shows the Grand River before entering Lake Erie. You will find free parking. Watch the fishermen, walk around, take pictures - just take it easy. There are no tourist traps, just a few small stores.
The Grand River ends here
Quiet and peaceful, except one truck with young people who gave a brief performance. But nobody was impressed!
Visitors and fishermen enjoy the warm weather in June
My walking is getting really bad, so I enjoy the good zoom of my camera
The police is occasionally showing presence
I hope that sailboats become more popular and that you can rent them sometimes. Friends from us wanted to charter a yacht for several weeks, to sail on the Great Lakes, but nothing was available.

Before you return to Dunnville you should explore Maitland. Drive slowly along the shore of Lake Erie and see how nicely you can live here.
I will come back in winter to see the ice built up on the lake.

On your way back to Dunnville you will see on your left side the former airport. There is still a nice museum.
All flying and sky diving activities have been stopped because of wind turbines which will supply clean energy.
I will visit the museum again to add some more information to my travel guide.
We also recommend to visit Byng Island located in Dunnville in the Grand River.
It is a beautiful conservation area with a large and clean pool. Rent a boat, explore the marsh.
