Welland Travel Guide
Welcome to Welland!
The days of wine and roses are not far off in Welland. In late September upwards of 60,000 visitors swell the reservation books of the city's restaurants during the Niagara Food Festival. Food and the fruit of local vineyards are everywhere, accompanied by a street life chiming with tunes from buskers and the sound of children's games. In the month of June the fresh bloom of roses takes over during the Welland Rose Festival when parades and a lobsterfest accompany summer's start. In early May French culture is on show during Francofest, a film festival showing the best of French cinematography. One attraction a visitor will be hard pressed to miss is Welland's murals. Some reach three storeys high and 8 m (25 ft) across. There are more than two dozen murals decorating the city's streetscape. Welland is conveniently located only 77 km (48 mi) from the Greater Toronto Area.
The Welland Canal is one of Ontario's most impressive man-made structures, circumnavigating Niagara Falls through a series of eight locks.
