Lewiston & Lockport
Plan to set aside a whole day to spend in Lockport and Lewiston, which are hubs of arts activity in the Niagara region. The crown jewel of Lewiston is Artpark, a 150-acre park that hosts 150-plus events every summer; since its opening in 1974, the park has seen luminaries from the New York Philharmonic and Ella Fitzgerald to Sting and the Bolshoi Ballet. Then make a stop at Our Lady of Fatima Shrine to check out the exquisitely detailed statues. In Lockport, start at Art247, which houses galleries, art classes, studios and a gift shop. With a constantly rotating gallery schedule, there’s always something to see, do or buy! End your day with a show at the historic Kenan Center, an arts complex stretching over 25 acres. Choose between Jazz at the Taylor, the Carriage House Players or the family-friendly Tales at the Taylor.
