Visit and explore Lanark County and surroundings
Tourism Region:
"Haliburton Highlands to the Ottawa Valley"
Lanark County, Canada, Ontario, tourism, travel guide

The Lanark County in tourism region: "Haliburton Highlands to the Ottawa Valley"

The "Lanark County" is another tip for tourists who prefer nature and outdoor activities to bustling towns and spending excessive money for shopping, gambling or in discos.
Swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, watching animals in summer, cross country skiing, snowmobiling in winter are only a few of the things which you can do here.
Lanark County is not very densely populated and most of the villages we passed through were very small. They merged to so called municipalities for economical reasons.
Lanark Highlands is the largest of these municipalities.
We loved it. Unfortunately we lost all of our own pictures when our computer was stolen. With the pictures we also lost some of our memories of little details and events.
We have been here for recreation but we also traveled through this area when we returned from Kanata where we had been on a business trip.
I think, we have to come back to refresh our memories.
However, I remember Carleton Place because I made jokes because it is located on the Mississippi.

We regretted that we had stayed in a hotel in Kanata which did not even offer a breakfast. An accommodation in the country side like Carleton would have been preferable.
We could have visited the historical downtown in the evening instead of watching TV.
This is how I gain experience.
We did not have enough time to visit the Mississippi Lake.

This place took its name from the Scottish city when settlers from Scotland settled there. Lanark County "is not very densely populated and most of the places are quite small, so they have joined forces to form administrative communities. We show places through which we came. Unfortunately, most of the pictures are not from us. Our were lost for the most part. Save now like the better! Dieser Ort hat den Namen von der schottischen Stadt übernommen als sich dort Siedler aus Schottland niederließen.
Lanark County" ist nicht sehr dicht besiedelt und die meisten Orte sind recht klein. Sie haben sich deshalb zu Verwaltungsgemeinschaften zusammen geschlossen.
Wir zeigen Orte durch die wir kamen. Die meisten Bilder stammen aber leider nicht von uns. Unsere gingen zum Großteil verloren. Jetzt sichern wie die besser!

Almost all of our visitors purchased maple syrup. Most of them in the Niagara Region, but some of them also direct from the producers when they traveled.
The Lanark County is one of the areas in Ontario which is also well known for maple syrup. So keep your eyes open or ask for producers. Don't buy it in the fancy eye catching tins! They look like antique cars or locomotives. We and our visitors made a bad experience with those. The syrup was not any more good after a short time. Better are glass or even plastic bottles. When you buy it in normal properly sealed tins pour the syrup in a glass bottle after opening the tin and store it in a fridge.

I have been several time in Perth. Always on business and never for pleasure. I liked it there and I had a great lunch with a business partner there.
For Canadian standards it is an old city. It was founded in 1816 to accommodate soldiers who were fighting in the previous war against the Americans.
Settler from Scotland and Ireland came a little bit later.

Smiths Falls (often called "Smith's Falls" or "Smith Falls") is located on the "Rideau Canal Waterway".
This waterway connects Kingston on Lake Ontario with Ottawa. It has a length of about 200 km and is an attraction not only for boaters. It is formed by rivers, lakes and canals. It is one of the "National Historic Site of Canada".
Use the Internet for more information. It is another of my dreams to tour it, but without getting any money out of my travel guides it may never be possible for me to realize the dream
Smiths Falls is double the size of Perth. It is home of the "Rideau Canal Museum" and the "Heritage House Museum".
Get here information about the oldest waterway in North America and learn how people have lived in the past.
Don't miss to visit the "Blockhouse Museum" in Merrickville. The "Blockhouse" was originally built to defend the locks in case of an attack. Today it is an attraction for tourists from all over the world.
Please visit also Merrickville. It is a very pretty little town
Many thanks to the "Friends of the Rideau" for the picture on the left side. Also many thanks to the producers of the videos below. They add so much flavor to our web site. For that reason I purchased a new digital camera which produces better quality videos and allows zooming during recording.
Now I have to learn to use it properly. Our cats and my wife are the actors!
The video "Sketches of Our Town-Smiths Falls", which you will find below, gives you a very good impression even if it does not have HD quality. The video has been converted from a 1986 VHS tape -many thanks for doing that.
