You breathe in excitement and out indecision—will you tour lavish vineyards, collect artisan souvenirs in quaint boutiques, or charter a sailboat and cast your line for Atlantic salmon during your time in St. Catharines? This sense of unlimited possibilities is what motivates you to travel and, you could say, informs your life as well. Alas, there is no wrong decision. Mill over your proposed itinerary inside the comfort of St. Catharines hotels. Although hotel staff can’t make the decision for you, they can recommend some of their favorite ways to pass brisk Canadian afternoons.
Perhaps the best way to know a city is by simply following your feet wherever they may lead. This rationale is all you need to get behind the wheel of St. Catharines rental cars and drive to the city’s historic waterfront. A slight breeze in the air kisses your cheek as you stroll along, gazing out at the choppy cerulean water. Lake Ontario is much larger than you imagined it to be and you sit down on a bench along the waterfront trail to soak it in. Colorful sailboats bob in the water and you wave at local children skipping stones off the shoreline. Finding that hours slipped away while you watched sun beams dance on the water’s surface, you abandon your post in favor of an opulent dinner downtown before returning to hotels in St. Catharines. A fresh salmon filet served with a glass of shiraz confirm that you made the most of your day—meandering has never led you off course in the pursuit of pleasure.
Rise with the sun and blink the sleep from your eyes. With a fresh cup of coffee in hand, depart from cheap hotels in St. Catharines to glance out over the azure lake once more. Sipping on the caffeinated beverage while you traverse 32 miles to hotels in Buffalo, you’ll have ample time to reflect on the epic waterway that made your time in St. Catharines rejuvenating, instead of rushed. Perhaps sometimes your best decisions are made not by logic, but simply by following your instinct.
