This website features pictures (stills and videos) of the Niagara Region. It’s also a Directory for those looking for services in Niagara Falls and the Niagara Region.
There’s more than a half million people that call the Niagara Region home. Situated between Buffalo New York, and Toronto Ontario, it is a busy place, especially since Niagara Falls is the home of one of the world’s most admired and known tourist destinations, because of the Falls at Niagara. But there is so much more to the area, and this website is being put together to help you understand all the things you can do and see while visiting.
For instance, we have one of the most admired and successful wine regions in the world. Not only is the area known for it’s red and white wines, but also world wide for our ice wine. It takes a special climate to grow the grapes that are turned into ice wine, and we have that climate. Then there is Niagara on the Lake, Upper Canada’s first capital and a beautiful historic town right on the Niagara River.
Within this site, GatewayNiagaraFalls.com, you’ll also learn about the communities that make up the region, the incredible Welland Canal that was first built in the early eighteen hundreds, to allow ships to get around the Falls. The Falls are fed by the waters of the Great Lakes, which house over 21% of the fresh surface water of the world. Many great cities depend on the lakes for supply lines by ship, going deep into western Ontario and Minnesota, some 2,000 kilometres from east to west.

The Gateway Niagara website has been active since 2004, and throughout 2018 we continue a complete rebuild of the site to bring you more about Niagara than ever before such as a detailed business directory.
