20 Things To Do In 2020!

We have put together the ultimate checklist of 20 things to do in 2020!

1. Head to the beach

With Rideau River Provincial Park and Baxter Conservation area nearby, there are plenty of opportunities to stay cool once it heats up again.

2. Hike every season

Check this one off over and over again. With over 150kms of trails, you can take different routes every season!

Whether in a boat, kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard, the views along the Rideau River and Kemptville Creek are a must-see.

5. Attend a star-studded music festival

Trips to Big Sky Ranch, Alpaca Tracks, and Saunders Country Critters are a must!
