9. Old Fort Erie

Old Fort Erie is one of Niagara’s fascinating heritage sites. It was built in 1764 and was the first fort built in Ontario by the British. It was used as a base for British troops, Loyalist Rangers and Iroquois Warriors during the American Revolution. Sadly, it was Canada’s bloodiest battlefield having over 3,000 soldiers killed and wounded during the Siege of Fort Erie. It was also the major crossing point for the Underground Railroad from 1793 to 1865.

With re-enactments of the War of 1812, you will get to experience all the sights and sounds associated with the times. The fort houses over 200 years of history with soldiers getting ready for the battle. During the summer of 2015, Friday nights will serve as movie night at the fort with flicks like award-winning classic movies and recent releases with cultural significance presented in the grand and storied venue so you can experience it as well as watch it. Who says history can’t be interesting and fun?
