Jordan Station is a picturesque small town in Ontario full of hidden gems
Jordan Station is a quaint and charming destination in the heart of Niagara's wine country, with a slower pace of life that feels like it was frozen in time.
Often overlooked for the larger nearby town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Jordan Station has a rich history and stunning natural beauty which also deserves its due.
Nearby, you'll find the community of Jordan Village, with an inviting small town feel, shops, galleries, and more to explore.
Here are some of the best things to do and see in Jordan Station and Jordan Village.
Head to Upper Canada Cheese in Jordan Station and pick up some delectable cheeses. Here, artisan cheese makers make the cheese in small batches by hand using fresh Guernsey milk and goat milk from local farms.
With its prime location in Niagara's wine country, Jordan is known for wine-tourism. In town, stop at Cave Spring Cellars' boutique wine-tasting room and shop to sample a flight.
Head to the Lincoln Museum and Cultural Centre to learn some fascinating insight into the town’s past. The museum features exhibits on the area’s history, and has a contemporary art exhibition space featuring work by artists whose work speak to the history and culture of the area.
The museum is made up of a contemporary museum building with two historic buildings, including the 1859 School House and the 1815 Fry House, a unique example of early Mennonite settler architecture which have scenic views over the Twenty Valley. A hiking trail connects from the museum site to the Bruce Trail.
Jordan Village's Main Street looks like the setting of a romance film, with flowering trees lining the sidewalks, unique boutiques and shops.
You can also follow a path through a garden off of Main Street that connects to even more charming boutiques on 19th Street.
Follow the Cataract Trail, a 1.7-kilometre-loop which follows Twenty Mile Creek through the forest continuing to the 35-foot-tall (11 metres) Upper Falls.
Give yourself more time to explore the area and stay overnight at Inn on the Twenty, a boutique stay right in Jordan Village complete with an onsite spa.
Get pampered at the inn's Spa on the Twenty, which offers everything from relaxing massages to body scrubs and facials.
For dinner, save up your money and dine at one of the hottest restaurants in the province. Restaurant Pearl Morissette is the place to go for ever-changing seasonal tasting menus that highlight ingredients sourced from the Niagara Region.
