"Ontario contains many excellent recreational waterways including: the Great Lakes, the Rideau Canal, the Trent-Severn Waterway, the Ottawa and St Lawrence Rivers."
"Cutting a swath through the city is the Rideau Canal, a magnet for houseboats and cabin cruisers in summer and a scene out of a Dutch painting in winter, when the citizenry takes to the ice on sleighs and skates."
"The BEST way to get downtown from Carleton is to cycle -along the bicycle path all along the Rideau canal."
"It's an eminently liveable city, well-planned, traditional in style and spacious, with an abundance of recreational and cultural activities, but apart from the National Museum of Civilization, the fantastic National Gallery and various performing arts centres there isn't much here that a tourist must do...unless you're a skate freak, in which case the 5 mile long rink of the Rideau Canal, particularly during the Winterlude festival, is made for you."
"The city is also accessible via the Rideau Canal ,now recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site  ,and which runs from the St. Lawrence River at Kingston to the Ottawa River at Ottawa where it empties via a series of locks."
"During this time, a winding, frozen five-mile stretch of the Rideau Canal (the 125-mile-long canal, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, connects Lake Ontario and the Ottawa River) is the record holder for the world’s largest ice-skating rink; it’s slated to open this season on February 10."
"Boat cruises along the Rideau Canal, Rideau River or Ottawa River are also a good way to see the sights."
"Ottawa stands at the confluence of the Ottawa and Rideau rivers, and is also the starting point of the Rideau Canal linking it to Lake Ontario."
"It runs south from the Ottawa River Parkway through Baseline Road to Prince of Wales Drive towards the communities of Manotick and Barrhaven."
"Samuel de Champlain and Étienne Brûlé ,assisted by Algonquin guides, were the first Europeans to travel up the Ottawa River and follow the water route west to Georgian Bay that was be used by French fur traders for the following two centuries."
"In fact, the Queen's advisers had her pick Ottawa for three important reasons: first, it was the only settlement of any significant size located right on the border of Canada East and Canada West (Quebec/Ontario border today), making it a compromise between the two colonies and their French and English populations; second, the War of 1812 had shown how vulnerable the major cities were to American attack, since they were all located very close to the border while Ottawa was (then) surrounded by a dense forest far from the border; third, the government owned a large parcel of land on a spectacular spot overlooking the Ottawa River."
"The city is also accessible via the Rideau Canal ,which runs from the St. Lawrence River at Kingston to the Ottawa River at Ottawa where it empties via a series of locks."
"Its location, on the Ottawa River, is one of the most spectacular in the region offering amazing views of Ottawa's skyline and river shores."
