Sandwiched between Lake Ontario and the Niagara escarpment, Stoney Creek and Winona make up a scenic region that offers plenty of natural beauty with many restaurants and shops nearby. History left its mark on this area as the famous site of the Battle of Stoney Creek, part of the War of 1812.
Stoney Creek is fortunate to be on the outer edge of Niagara’s wine country. Visitors to the area can check out tasting rooms at wineries like Ridge Road, Puddicombe (fruit wines and cider) and Leaning Post. Stock your wine cellar or pick up a bottle to share with friends.
Felker’s Falls, with a stunning drop of 22 metres, this terraced ribbon waterfall is a popular spot for photographers. It’s picturesque in any season and handy to a 4-km trail that connects three falls – Buttermilk, Albion and Glendale.
Fifty Point Conservation Area, there’s a lot packed into this 80-hectare park. A marina serves the needs of boaters, while campers can spend the night at one of 76 campsites. Day visitors can happily spend the day birdwatching, swimming, fishing, hiking (featuring a new 3.4 kilometre trail) and picnicking.
