“The best Sunday afternoon drive in the world”
Located in the Niagara Peninsula's southwestern corner where Lake Erie enters the Niagara River, the town offers the best of both worlds blending small-city living with the convenience of two large metropolitan areas, Toronto and Buffalo, just a short drive away.
Fort Erie boasts approximately 42 kilometers of waterfront. The shoreline ranges from sandy beach, to rocky shoreline, to developed parkland and recreation trails. Along the Fort Erie shores of the mighty Niagara River winds the Niagara River Parkway, famous for being “the best Sunday afternoon drive in the world”, according to Sir Winston Churchill.
