Welland certainly is a central hub even for us here in Niagara. There is always something happening in Welland to draw you and I as well as big business.

Back to you and I — the Rose Festival and the Niagara Regional Exhibition are a couple of my favourites, not to mention the canal, great shopping, food and entertainment happening each month. There is always something that draws me to Welland on a weekly basis.
I remember as a teen trying to figure out how to get to Welland to go rollerskating, (the Welland rink had the best floor at the time – I know, I’m dating myself but…) not to mention all the time I spent in class at Niagara College. One thing I’ve noticed recently is pretty much every visit to Welland I make, I find something new – a new business, a new development, something… How about the brand-spanken new Welland Toyota dealership on Niagara St. That seemed to pop up out of no where. Like I said – something new consistently!
Below is a video I ran across on twitter a month or so ago, and while it does traverse the complete Canal, it is a unique visual of the Welland Canal as if you were on a ship, rather than driving the roadways that follow its path.
