Welcome to NiagaraWatch.com

It's wonderful that you're interested in the Niagara Region of Ontario. It's the undiscovered gem of the province. The region stretches from Lake Ontario to Lake Erie, and the Niagara River (Niagara on the Lake) to the east.
Within those boundaries you will find beautiful orchards, as well as vineyards, and a wide variety of farms. Where else can you drive through beautiful country side and orchards to buy fresh fruits, vegetables and organic meat right from the farm, then nip over to a shop, stop off for a walk along the Welland Canal to watch a Laker (ship) coming through the locks then enjoy a gourmet meal and take in a show at the Shaw festival - all within a 10 mile radius! 
The heart of the region is St. Catharines. With a population of about 130,000, it is large enough to offer all the conveniences (and necessities) of a "city" yet it's small enough to avoid the congestion of larger cities. 
Niagara Falls is the second largest city with a population of about 76,000 and Welland comes in third with about 48,000 people. Other communities in the region include Fort Erie, Grimsby, Lincoln, Pelham, Port Colborne, Thorold, Wainsfleet, ,West Lincoln and Niagara-on-the-lake. 
NiagaraWatch supports the people who live in the community and we are glad to have the opportunity to help visitors discover the region.
Please visit us often at Niagara Watch - we will be updating the information often. If you have comments or would like to have a review of a feature here in the Niagara Region, please email us.
