Visit and explore Fort Erie and surroundings Tourist Region: "Niagara" Canada, Ontario, tourism, travel guide
Lake Erie is always spectacular. You only have to wear appropriate clothing or stay in your car.
One of the view restaurants with a nice view on the lake. You will find it in Crystal Beach!

Naturally, summer offers more even when most of the good events which they once had in Fort Erie are not any longer offered. Most of them were depending on volunteers and I do not know the reasons why they are not coming any longer.
The last event which we had visited with our German guest was a small music fest which was not attractive to an older crowd. So we did not stay very long to get away from the terrible noise. I had to use my hearing as ear plugs!
Everybody from our small group consumed only one ice cold coke.
After the Canadian anthem was played in a modernized form we left
This was not a pleasant encounter - we had this later in a nice restaurant with good food and beer
We used our trip to Crystal Beach to show our guests some of the improvements which were achieved since their last visit. It is a slow process and I hope it will work. It has lots of potential when the right things are done, but you have to know what is right! I think everything which attracts good people who come as visitors and love clean nature and clean entertainment.
Ridgeway was already an attraction when I came over thirty years ago to Canada. I considered it to be the best part of Fort Erie. Whenever I needed some thing special I found it her most the time.
Today I am not any longer in need of such things, but we still enjoy visiting Ridgeway.
Naturally also Fort Erie has changed. Certain hang outs which we visited after work don't exist any longer. A new restaurant became our favorite place when we have to celebrate something or just because we are hungry. You will find it in downtown in a former bank building.
As I already said less events which attract us. That was really much better in the early years - you could sit in the grass and listen to the legion band and talk to other people.
An exception was a Powwow which was performed indoors at the "Fort Erie Native Friendship Centre" because of the poor weather. Don't miss such an event. We included it in our travel guide, but no web site or video can replace the real thing!
Lot of money was spent to built a brand new "Old Fort Erie Interpretive Centre" and the prices had been increased, but the Fort is still an attraction.
Why do they compete against fast food chains - I would have preferred a place with a historical flair, food and clean entertainment from the past.
