Getting to know YOUR Ottawa: Manotick

Located just 15 kilometres south of Ottawa, there’s a warm welcome awaiting you in Manotick, a charming village on the Rideau River where old-fashioned, small-town service is alive and well! The perfect place to venture to this weekend and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Here are some activities for you to do in Manotick this weekend:

Watsons Mill: Watson’s Mill is a unique 1860’s grist and flour mill located in Manotick, on the shores of the Rideau River.  A working industrial heritage site in greater Ottawa, it has a remarkable history linked to local politics, the building of a country, and a tragic love story.   The WMMI mandate is to preserve Watson’s Mill as a working historic grist and flour mill, and a social, cultural and educational focal point for the community and visitors. Just in time for Halloween, the mill is apparently haunted by a ghost!

Black Dog Bistro: Right in the heart of Manotick is a fantastic restaurant with a wide array of food and drink options. Make sure to try their scallops and shrimp penne and have a glass of wine in a relaxing environment.

Nin Collection Boutique: If you feel like shopping up a storm this weekend, make sure to take advantage of the great little boutiques in Manotick! A great one in particular is NIN Collection Boutique. Filled with unique pieces, you’re sure to find something you’ll want to take home with you!
