My family have done the Canal trip a few times and always enjoy it. This time was no exception. Jones Falls is a nice stop as is Chafey's Lock.

The Jones Falls and the Rideau Canal area is a great spot to view Canadian history. The area is just beautiful with a number of trails around the National Historic site. I would highly recommend taking a look at this scenic and historic spot.
