A few weekends ago (Labor Day weekend actually) I had the chance to visit Old Fort Niagara for the first time ever! Not only was I excited to see the fort, but I was able to go with my Dad and catch the War of 1812 Encampment. Lewiston is so beautiful, so walking around the fort and catching the sunset and boats in the water was an added bonus.
Both my Dad and myself enjoyed the fort and the show. It was nice father/daughter time out and anyone whether you are a history nerd or not would enjoy this amazing place and its right in our backyard.
If you're an educator looking to provide your students with a hands on experience in history this would be a great place to take them. The fort is also located inside a park, so if you are looking for a fun place to go on a date this would be great, set-up a nice picnic and then head to the fort after.
When visiting the fort make sure to wear comfortable shoes (such as sneakers) and be aware that if you are walking around the fort at night be cautious as there is little outdoor lighting walking from the fort to the parking lot.
Check out the Haunted Fortress event on October 19 and 26 here.
