From grabbing your morning brew to going grocery shopping and keeping your kids entertained, Niagara is chock-full of exciting local spots.

Go for Date Night at R5 Patio & Bar

Located in Fallsview Casino Resort, R5 Patio & Bar offers creative cocktails, a delectable tapas menu and an unparalleled level of service. Only a 22-minute drive away from Empire Calderwood and Empire Legacy, this patio and bar is the perfect place to unwind and connect.

Pick Up Your Morning Brew at Starbucks

They say when you get a Starbucks in the area, you’ve made it. Empire Calderwood and Empire Legacy residents enjoy a 4-minute drive to their local Starbucks in the morning, where they’ll meet the familiar faces of local commuters and go-getters.

Entertain Your Kids at Clifton

Niagara Falls’ world famous Street of Fun is a must-see, with its wide assortment of attraction and entertainment offerings. Clifton Hill is located just a block from the Falls and just 20 minutes away from Empire Calderwood and Empire Legacy. We recommend a ride on the Niagara Skywheel, with its picturesque views.

Go Grocery Shopping at Niagara Falls Farmers’ Market

Nearly 50 years running year-round, the Niagara Falls Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings features the famously delicious produce of the region as well as fresh breads, jams, honey and more. It’s just a 20-minute drive from Empire Calderwood and Legacy, too.

Get Grammable Photos at Niagara-on-the-Lake

Called the loveliest town in Ontario, Niagara-on-the-Lake combines scenic and historical beauty with modern attractions. Theatres, festivals and a historical business district straight out of a move set continually grace the squares of Instagram. Take a 30-minute road trip from Empire Calderwood or Legacy to see it for yourself.

Buy Birthday Cakes at Moodie’s Bakery

From great daily treats to specialty cakes and cupcakes, Moodie’s Bakery is a favourite for Niagara locals. We love their fair prices and fresh-baked smell. Pro-tip: Call ahead for specialty cakes and enjoy friendly service at its finest. For our residents living at Calderwood or Legacy, we promise that the 23-minute car ride is well worth the trip.

Workout at LA Fitness

With a kid’s club, trainers on site and a full schedule of community classes, Niagara locals love this internationally-recognized chain for its high-quality equipment, spacious facilities and knowledgeable staff. It’s just a 20-minute car ride away from Empire Calderwood and Legacy, making it easy for our residents to fit their late night gym sessions in too.
