Located across from Ottawa City Hall on Sussex Drive, these pretty falls mark the end of the Rideau River's journey from the St. Lawerence River. Although not as spectacular as Hog's Back Falls, the Rideau Falls are still picturesque in their own right, especially when they are shimmering lit up at night. The falls are located in Rideau Falls Park, within walking distance of 24 Sussex Drive and Rideau Hall .

I did not do the cruise, however, so cannot comment on that. Everytime I go with out of towners, we just walk up to the top and view it from above.
