There's a lot of history tied up in the Rideau Canal. It was built to allow troops to bypass the St. Lawrence River in the event America was to invade Canada. We didn't invade and the canal remains. It is a great place to stroll along, or sit on a bench and chill out. I've only been to Ottawa in the Spring and Summer, but the canal becomes the world's longest ice skating rink in the winter. I will skate here some day.
