The scene of many battles during the War of 1812, Fort George was originally built by the British Army in the late 1700's. A new fort was completed in 1802 and this became the headquarters of the British Army and the local militia.

Visit Niagara Falls!
The Clock Tower or Cenotaph is widely known as a key landmark in Old Towne Niagara-on-the-Lake. Located in the center of Queen Street, the Clock Tower is a favourite location for guests to place as the backdrop for their photos.
Hornblower Niagara Cruises
Niagara Falls is a must-see. Enjoy a scenic drive down the Niagara Parkway. It will wind alongside the picturesque Niagara River as you head south through Queenston Heights, past the Sir Adam Beck hydro generation plant, past the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls and along the tourism district to the world famous Falls.
As a visual landmark as to where to go, simply look for the Skylon Tower which was erected to stand right above the Falls. Bring a rain jacket if you plan to walk to the observation area right by the Horseshoe Falls - it gets pretty misty there almost to the point of feeling like rain. Ladies you have been forewarned!
