Walk into the 19th century at Battlefield House Museum in Stoney Creek. The Battle of Stoney Creek was waged on this land in 1813 during the war of 1812. Every year there is a re-enactment in June but, don’t let that stop you for enjoying the grounds throughout the year. 

Starlite Drive-in Theatre – 59 Green Mountain Road East
Take in a movie under the summer sky. Showing the latest films, it’s a great opportunity to take in two movies in one night! Stop by the concession stand to stock up on snacks too!
