Let the festivities begin! Our first visit will be at the beautiful Casa Loma. Originally home to Canadian financier, industrialist and military officer Sir Henry Pellatt, the castle is curated to offer everyone a unique perspective on life in Toronto and North America in the early 20th Century. Toronto’s Castle is full of secret passages to explore; soaring towers to climb, and views of the cityscape. And don’t forget, decorated for the season!
After our visit we head back to the city for the entire afternoon and evening free for everyone to indulge in the Christmas Market. Food, entertainment and one-of-a-kind European items to purchase await. And don’t forget the beer!

Nearby Toronto is the quaint old-world city of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Sitting on the shores of Lake Ontario, Niagara-on-the-Lake is best known for its wineries and the summer Shaw Festival, a series of live theatre productions. The flower-filled (in season), tree-lined old town features 19th-century buildings, mainly along Queen Street and very near to our elegant accommodations.
The Queens Landing Hotel is a Georgian-style hotel with an 1831 dockmaster's house annex. It’s a quick walk from the shops and restaurants of delightful, old-world Queen Street. This afternoon finds us experiencing more of what this city is known for, live theater. The uplifting musical Holiday Inn will be performed on stage for our holiday enjoyment. Later, indulge in the delicious cuisine of our host hotel at our sophisticated included dinner.
