V isual Art Experiences & Shopping Over 80 artists and artisans call the Rideau home, from painters and potters to glass blowers and wood craftsmen. Some display and sell their works in galleries, while others open their studios to the public. Art lovers will enjoy the galleries of Kingston and Ottawa, the vibrant artist’s community of Merrickville, and the many studio tours and art festivals held along the route. Other unique Rideau shopping experiences include treasure hunting at antique stores and shows, and exploring the charming retail shops of our smaller communities. F all Colours A tapestry of fire and brilliance erupts along the Rideau every autumn. For breathtaking fall colour viewing, visit Spy Rock lookout on Foley Mountain overlooking Westport – or Rock Dunder near Morton. For more fall colour information visit www.rideauheritageroute.ca! Dining There is no better way to celebrate the region’s culture than through its exceptional dining experiences.
