“Just interesting site when viewed from a boat on the Ottawa river”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Nothing Special about it. Ok When viewed from a boat ride on the Ottawa River... Can be more interesting when viewed during winter time, with ice around it.

“Sort of hidden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

I used to go for bike rides to the falls. It's a neat place for sure. You can walk on a bridge that goes right over the falls. That's pretty cool. Definitelt worth stopping at if you're near.

“One of Ottawa's most romantic places”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Day or night. Winter or summer...this place is great! Been coming here since I was a child. Makes a nice place to stop on a Sunday afternoon bike ride or during an evening drive. Nice place to spend some quiet time alone or with someone want to spend quiet time with.

“Rideau Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Absolutely gorgeous! The falls are located in a lovely park very near the French Embassy and a few blocks from the Prime Minister's residence. A nice view of Quebec from the lookout.
