Well, we can say spring has finally arrived at Globetrotters Bed and Breakfast in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Fruit trees are showing off their pink, white and mauve blooms and that beautiful spring green that I so love covers the landscape.

If you haven’t checked us out on Facebook, please do so. We’d love for you to “like” us and help us promote our bed and breakfast.

Whirlpool Jet Boats
Another sign of spring . . . Whirlpool Jet Boats are open for business. The company had to wait a couple of weeks longer this year because of the ice that was on Lake Erie. That ice flows over the Falls and down the Niagara River to Lake Ontario where the company’s boats are moored. If your date loves water, speed and thrills, this trip is for you. I highly recommend it. You’ll get wet though so be prepared by bringing a full change of clothing (underwear and all)!

Movies in the Vineyards
You’ll never view movies the same way again. During June and July, join Trius Winery at Hillebrand for wine country’s version of a drive-in movie. Imagine driving up to a winery for your movie date, handing him or her a glass of Trius wine and some of Chef Frank Dodd’s snacks to share, and relaxing on a couple of vineyard lawn chairs to enjoy a classic film favourite under a blanket of stars. Now that’s romantic! Of course, if you really want to impress your date, plan on dinner and a movie. Check out the movie lineup here.

Sip and Sizzle
Every weekend in May, take your date for lunch at Small Talk Vineyards for a garlic-braised BBQ chicken pizza with sour cream, chives, homemade mozzarella, red wine marinated onions topped with green spring onion, paired with a delicious glass of Faux Pas wine. At the end of May the Small Talk Bistro opens and Chef Collin Goodine will be serving tapas at their tasting bar and on the outdoor patio. He’ll also be heading up the Small Talk Speakeasy for an exclusive private dining experience. Stay posted for details here.

Sip and sizzle your way through lunch at the Small Talk Bistro & Speakeasy in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
