The Weather in Niagara is always Wine.

Our popular Niagara Seasonal Weekend GO Train Service is back for the summer. The service runs June 22 – September 3 and October 5-8 on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway to experience some of Ontario’s best wineries or the excitement of Fallsview Casino, there’s no better way to travel to the falls.

Depending on when you’d like to head to the falls, there a few different trains you could take. If you’re looking to head out Saturday morning, you can catch our 9 a.m. train, getting you to the falls for 11:05 a.m.

If you’re not departing from Union Station, not to worry. There are five other stops along the way – Exhibition, Port Credit, Oakville, Burlington and St. Catharines. Click here to plan your trip!

On board the train

The trip to Niagara Falls takes approximately two hours from Union Station. Grab a coffee in the York Concourse to enjoy during the ride and plan out the details of your weekend. Once you arrive in Niagara Falls, catch a WEGO bus to take you to wherever you’d like – the tourist area, the falls, or Niagara-on-the-Lake. Click here to see a detailed WEGO bus schedule.

Something for everyone

On Saturday, head to wine country in Niagara-on-the-Lake for some winery tours and tastings! If you’re up for a late dinner, head to R5, conveniently located at Fallsview Casino. Grab a spot on the patio to get a view of the fireworks show that starts at 10 p.m. nightly! After dinner, head to the casino. We’ve teamed up with Fallsview to offer a $10 slot offer included in your travel package!

On Sunday, you can head to a spa for a relaxing couples massage and lunch in the falls.
