Outdoor patios are a beautiful thing because they offer you a sense of peace and tranquility all the while taking in the beauty of the sights and sounds of the location where the outdoor patio is. What is so wonderful about The Niagara Region is that there are a variety of restaurants that, during those warm summer months, open up their patios and let their restaurant span to the curb side. With the cold months behind, tourists and locals seem to fall in love when they know the patio is opened at Boston Pizza or Fresco's as it can only mean one thing, summer is around the corner. Sitting outside while enjoying a meal with the ones you love enlightens all your senses. The sweet smells of your dish, mix with the sweet smells of summer, the sounds of the birds chirp high above, and you get to enjoy a little extra time outside, just the way you like it. From Italian to traditional American dishes, each of these outdoor patios will have you visiting The Niagara Region every spring. Think of these outdoor patios as one of the best places to kick start your adventures all summer long, or better yet, think of these restaurants as the one place where you can kick back and enjoy the beauty of the hot sun.
