Grimsby is a special place, nestled between beautiful Lake Ontario and the majestic Niagara Escarpment (a unique topical formation). From its roots as a service centre to Niagara's thriving agricultural industry, the town has developed to become a preferred place in which to live and do business in Niagara.
Although less than an hour's drive from Toronto's world-class cultural milieu , Grimsby is the personification of a small town. It's quiet, tree-lined avenues, its rural area, the natural Niagara Escarpment which winds through the town's centre, the beaches on the shores of Lake Ontario, and its many parks define "home" to the town's 19,000 people. There are two marinas in town, and a free boat ramp, so there's no excuse for not taking part in the fabulous fishing and boating available on Lake Ontario.
Feel like a nice, quiet walk in the woods? We've got that too, on the Bruce Trail, which winds along the Niagara Escarpment. In the spring, there's the Hawk Watch, taking place at the Beamer Conservation Area.
Beamsville Bench and surrounding areas have created some great wineries, taking advantage of the favourable microclimate generated by the Escarpment. Some of these wineries have excellent restaurants looking over the vineyards.
