NOTL downtown is very picturesque with it’s shops and restaurants. The core is small enough to walk up one side and down the other in no time. We enjoy taking a stroll popping into the shops and usually grab a bite to eat.

Beautiful town about 30 min North of Niagara Falls. Beautiful drive with wineries along the way this small town sits on Lake Ontario and has a lot of small shops on the main road.

This place reminded me of the small towns you'd see on television. The historic town has great jobs and plenty of nice places to eat. Just because the town looks historic doesn't mean it is.

I don't find this area to be touristy. It is quaint and comfortable. The landscaping is stunning, as are the buildings. The only thing you will notice is how busy it is, but again its quiet and friendly.
