Shaw Festival Introduces New Niagara-on-the-Lake Vacation Packages
The Shaw Festival Theatre features seven “In the Village” packages, highlighting quaint Niagara-on-the-Lake
25 June 2009 -- Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario -- The Shaw Festival's new Niagara on the Lake vacation packages underscore the areas most attractive qualities—the unique charms of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada; world-renowned wine; and the remarkably beautiful, and fascinating, Niagara region. Hence, twelve new packages are offered with the themes: "In the Village," "In the Vineyard" and "In the Vicinity."
With over 50 wineries, a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake offers an ideal opportunity to enjoy a wine lunch or dinner prior to a Shaw Theatre performance. The Hillebrand Winery Package and the Peller Estates Winery Package offers a pre-theatre dining experience, one glass of wine, an introduction to the Resident Sommelier, and a Shaw Theatre performance, while a third package by Riverbend Inn and Vineyard includes overnight accommodations, a wine tasting and a Shaw Theatre performance.
Visitors have much to see beyond the old town of Niagara-on-the-Lake — from St. Catharine's to Niagara Falls — and for explorers, Niagara hotels in the vicinity have created enticing packages. The Holiday Inn in St. Catharines features a Shaw Summer Festival package with overnight accommodations, a welcome gift, a dining credit and a theatre performance. Visitors interested in a vineyard trip may opt for the Holiday Inn's Niagara Wine Tours. Also "In the Vicinity," White Oaks Resort & Spa offers superior accommodations with a bottle of wine, breakfast at LIV restaurant, shuttle service to the Shaw Festival as well as a theatre performance.
