Jordan and its surroundings are a very lovely part of the Niagara peninsula.
Nestled between vineyards and fruit gardens it is one of my favorite destinations when we have visitors and I want to show them our area.
The village has a relative long history and all the old houses are nicely renovated. Many of them have been converted into small galleries, stores and boutiques. I was especially attracted by one which sells sculptures and other art work created by the Inuit and Iroquois.
You found the right store if you are interested in great collectibles
Ninavik - Native Art - a view into the store
More native art...
From all over the country
No mass production!
Ask about the artists
I was surprised when the owner showed me a brochure in German about some of his products.
Eventually you go wine tasting first. This may help to improve your spending mood when you go shopping after. You will be surprised that Canada offers a variety of good wines. I am not a real wine drinker but I was always interested to try different food and the gourmet restaurant always attracted me and eventually we will have a meal there during one of our next visits to Jordan.
Auch In Jordan gibt es auch ein Weinrestaurant - ich habe es aber noch nie besucht
Use the large public parking lot to have a relaxing walk
The surrounding of Jordan is also an attraction for hikers. I was told that you can also rent bicycles if you prefer biking instead of walking, but I never proved that.
Check also the newer part of Jordan. I think it is a nice place to live.
Accommodation is also offered in this village. We always prefer such places to explore a certain area. Jordan is part of the community of Lincoln.
The area around Jordan was also settled by Mennonites. During the American revolution many left Pennsylvania and found here a new home. In 1801 they founded the first Mennonite church in Canada.
One house of these settlers has been moved to Jordan. Together with an old school it forms a small but very interesting museum which shows many details about the live style in the past.
