Would highly recommend checking out the Fort in Fort Erie. Lovely tourist centre, with artifacts, and washrooms. The Fort itself is in wonderful condition, and they have reenactments here a few times a year.

Visited during the 1812 battle re-enactments and the kids learned a lot about the Canadian Heritage. Didn’t get to visit the fort but the battle grounds provided enough. Kudos to the volunteers and local vendors

The Old Fort Erie, is the main tourist attraction in the town. It has been updated with a new centre and the fort itself is in good shape. Showcasing the life of a solider during the 1800’s.
