Getting to Niagara takes about an hour and a half by car. But if you don’t have a vehicle, the region is still accessible. Let the folks at Gray Line (page 30), for example, do the driving. The company offers several excursions, including a full-day tour that includes a buffet lunch, admission to Hornblower Niagara Cruises, and free time at the falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake. Or catch a train from Union Station: Via Rail (page 69) has daily departures, ideal for day trips to the area. If you do want to drive, the Niagara Wine Route (winecountryontario.ca) helps plot a trip based on your preferred wineries. Signs along the highway bearing a bunch of grapes will also guide you to your destination.
