The city is in the centre of of the Regional Municipality of Niagara and located within a half-hour driving distance to Niagara Falls.  It has been traditionally known as the place where rails and water meet, referring to the railways from Buffalo to Toronto and Southwestern Ontario and the waterways of Welland Canal and Welland River.
