Culture and cuisine are at the heart of Niagara Wine County in one of Ontarios historic towns.

Niagara-on-the-Lake (PRWEB) August 20, 2014

With the Canadian dollars slide to $0.91, its a great time for U.S. visitors to feel some Niagara bliss. Stay in an elegant Vintage hotel, see world-class theatre at the renowned Shaw Festival, book a decadent winery experience at Trius Winery at Hillebrand and Peller Estates Winery, 2014 Canadian Winery of the Year; journey back into history and do a little shopping in historic Niagara-on-the-Lake.

A mere 45-minutes from Buffalo, Niagara-on-the-Lake is located in the heart of Ontario Wine Country. Experiencing Niagara bliss is taken seriously in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and a weaker Canadian dollar makes the trip all the more enticing and accessible. Enjoy a truly distinctive experience at the many area wineries, shops, restaurants and significant historic points of interest before taking in some live theatre.

Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Shaw Festival offer a different experience for every kind of theatregoer. For the casual patron, enjoy a pre-show beer and burger at one of many local pubs and casual in-town eateries, such as Coach & Horses Pub at the Moffat Inn. Then, indulge in an intimate, thought-provoking theatrical experience in the indoor 194-seat Studio Theatre. This season, The Shaws Studio Theatre features Katori Halls The Mountaintop, a wondrous and heartbreaking play about the events surrounding Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Lorraine Motel following his famous Ive Been to the Mountaintop speech.

Or, for a more urbane experience, try wining and dining before the show at one of the many award-winning hotel or winery restaurants in the area, like Escabèche located in the historic Prince of Wales Hotel. A visit to the theatre isnt complete without sampling the famous Niagara wines from Peller Estates Winery and Trius Winery at Hillebrand. Enjoy world class theatre on a grand scale at the 856-seat Festival Theatre, the Shaw Festivals most popular indoor theatre space. During the 2014 season, the Tony Award-winning musical, Cabaret; Oscar-nominated play-turned-film, The Philadelphia Story; and Bernard Shaws comedy, The Philanderer will be featured in the Festival Theatre. The Shaw Festival produces ten plays from April to October, featuring 65 professional actors in four indoor theatre spaces, all within walking distance from each other.

The one thing that may deter some U.S. guests from taking advantage of the diverse and affordable experiences north of the border is driving across the border; however, visiting Canada by car is not as stressful as it seems. With a valid passport, Nexus card or enhanced drivers licence, anyone can cross the various points of entry. Its as simple as answering a few short questions.
