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!
3. Stuff your face
Need we say more? Whether you have a sweet tooth or are looking for a fine dining experience there is something for everyone.
4. Get out on the water
Whether in a boat, kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard, the views along the Rideau Ricer and Kemptville Creek are a must-see.
5. Attend a star-studded music festival
Kemptville Live is a weekend full of tunes, friends, and fun.
6. Visit the Farmers’ Market
Another one you will want to cross off multiple times. Visit the Kemptville Farmers’ Market every Sunday May through October.
7. Get your bike on
Ride along groomed trails or rural routes for a scenic afternoon.
8. Shop until you drop
Visit a number of unique and eclectic shops and boutiques.
9. Relax with a beverage, or two
Grab a glass of your favourite bevy, whether in a warm, music-filled pub on the cooler nights or at Green Gables Vines in the summer.
10. Get up close and personal with wildlife
Trips to Big Sky Ranch, Alpaca Tracks, and Saunders Country Critters are a must!
11. Explore history and heritage
With our quaint villages and hamlets, and our Old Town, history is alive and well. Take a step back in time with our Heritage Walking Tours.
12. Fish on the Rideau River
Hook, line, and sinker. Plenty of good fishing spots means this is a must-do over and over again.
