Almonte, Ontario

A series of waterfalls along the Mississippi River brought power and industry to the scenic mill town, located just under an hour west of the Nation's Capital City of Ottawa. It seems to be a small town full of giant buildings built in the 1800s. Plus I didn't know that Canada had its own Mississippi River.
"Our 19th century main street offers galleries, boutiques and antique shops. We have several first-class restaurants and a variety of inns and B&Bs, most located in historic structures along the river. We’re also home to some fascinating museums, and we host excellent summer festivals."
Eastern Ontario along Highway 7, or the Trans Canada Highway is gorgeous. Small lakes and tree covered hills would be spectacular in the fall.
