There's Something for Everyone in Niagara

Updated: Dec 7, 2019

The Niagara Region is a major tourist attraction and has a lot to offer visitors; but what about the locals? Not to worry, Niagara also presents a plethora of activities for us residents to enjoy! I’ve listed some of my top choices; a few things you wouldn’t necessarily think to do and a few old go-to’s. Feel free to add some of your favourite activities or locations in the comments below!


Trampolines are no longer just for kids! Kids are always more than welcome at Skyzone however, but I personally love jumping around with my adult friends as well; and not to worry, they normally separate adults and young children for safety purposes. Skyzone is fun, exciting and provides a great out-of-the-box workout.


St. Catharines flea market

The St. Catharines Factory Outlet Flea Market is the largest indoor/outdoor market in the Niagara Region. With over 250 booths, and over 125 vendors they have a huge variety of merchandise; a lot of which is hard to find anywhere else. This is one of my favourite places to go on a lazy Sunday Morning/Afternoon, you never know what treasures you’re going to find!


Niagara Farmers Markets

No matter where you live in Niagara, chances are there is a farmers market nearby. Niagara’s farmers markets offer a wide variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables. In addition to that, some vendors offer wine, meats and pastries. The market vendors include local growers, small businesses, restaurants and more. I especially love the markets in the Spring and Summer months for homemade ice cream, fresh flowers, and all the wonderful fruits and vegetables the Niagara Region offers.
