Celebrate summer with Sunday's Travel
The News-Herald's June Travel section comes out on Sunday with lots of great ways to celebrate summer. Preview some of them here by clicking on the color text.
You'll need a passport to reach Niagara-on-the-Lake's Shaw Festival, but what a treasure is found in this village that made Canadian history long before becoming home of a summer long group of professional productions inspired by George Bernard Shaw and his contemporaries. Go backstage for a look at what makes everything work so well then stop for a spot of afternoon tea. It's just three hours away east on I-90.
Also catch my blog and video about afternoon tea at the Prince of Wales and find out from guest blogger Joyce Wagner about her favorite places to eat and things to do in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Drive just two hours to experience the Chautauqua Institution, opening for the season next week with concerts, lectures and lakeside summer fun. Writer Elizabeth Lundblad got to know Chautauqua like the back of her hand when she worked for the Institution's newspaper. Her takes on the community with its brick paths, Victorian homes along shady streets and incredible opportunities for fun against a backdrop of learning are a great guide for newcomers and veterans.
Jean and Paul Mitrovich are longtime Chautauqua regulars, and she blogs about their favorites in the Jamestown, NY. area.
