Sensational Smiths Falls has much to offer anyone looking to invest in the tourism industry: location, heritage, natural attractions, recreational activities, and visitors.
The engineering marvel of the Rideau Canal -- Ontario's only UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site -- draws thousands of visitors each year. Festivals, events, and special guided tours throughout the summer celebrate how the Rideau Canal was built and the roles of the grist mills and railway system in bringing prosperity to our ancestors.
