Niagara On The Lake is featuring their annual Niagara Ice Wine Festival during 3 weekends in January. Let's check out the Icewine Village which is open from 11am-5pm. Also, we can grab lunch somewhere.
Admission is free to this event with a charge per tasting. There is also a $40 Discovery Pass available if you're interested in visiting wineries.
Note: Either a NY State enhanced drivers license or Passport is required to enter Canada!
Note: Dress for the weather since this event is outside!
The group went to this once before and noted that it's a little pricey so please be prepared. Also, Niagara on the Lake is a great place to walk around even if you don't drink. There are many local shops, ice sculptures, etc.
Car pool anyone?
