Ottawa Valley South, between Kingston and Ottawa, boasts a mix of outdoor adventure and quaint historic villages. The county is known for its historic stone architecture and local produce such as our award winning garlic and delicious maple syrup. Shops and eateries offer a cosmopolitan mix of arts, crafts and cuisine. Musicians, artists, and writers are drawn to the county’s scenic wilderness. There is always a pure, cool lake nearby, so take the boat out, go for a swim or simply relax and take in the scenery, or navigate the Rideau System and discover why this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
