Stretching 202 kms (125 miles) in length, the Rideau Canal is the oldest continuously operational system in N. America. It opened in 1832 and still operates as it did 100 years ago. Rideau Canal has been recognized as a National Historic Site of Canada, a Canadian Heritage River and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Canal consists of a beautiful winding scenic waterway connecting Kingston and Ottawa through numerous rivers, lakes, and lock along the way. A trip down the Canal makes for a delightful journey, allowing for some time to take in the scenery and tranquil beauty of this historic region.
Some wonderful views of the capital, I would love to visit one of these days
