Your loved one will definitely say that of all the beautiful stones you saw that day, their favorite ones were the ones they got to keep. And what's even better about proposing somewhere in the museum is that you can host your wedding and exchange your wedding bands there too!

If you and your dearest like nature but would rather be out in it, then consider going to one of the beautifully landscaped areas of the Central Experimental Farm. There are five different areas, the largest of which is the Arboretum; this features stunning views and 35 hectares of stunning trees and shrubs, some of which were planted in 1889! The Ornamental Gardens display a wide variety of flowers, the Macoun sunken garden, and has been open since 1880. Perfect place for wedding photos after you exchange those carefully chosen wedding bands from Knox Jewelers. The Canada Agriculture Museum showcases the unique agricultural heritage of Canada. A Tropical Greenhouse might be the perfect spot to propose to your sweetie during the cold winter days; you can pretend that you're on a romantic vacation and explore the 500 different kinds of tropical plants. Finally, the Fletcher Wildlife Garden contains natural habitats which are maintained by volunteers. No matter which of these special locations suits your personalities best you are ensured to have a beautiful back drop for photos after you propose with the engagement ring that you chose from Knox Jewelers. Your new fiance will love the special piece of gemstone or diamond jewelry that is a reminder of how amazing you think they are.

The Rideau Canal has a lot of history. It is the oldest continuously operated canal system in North America and has been registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are so many interesting things and activities to do along the Rideau that it is hard to know where to start; it runs between the capital, Ottawa, and the beautiful limestone city of Kingston. On the canal itself you can partake in a variety of activities such as fishing, wildlife, parks, hiking, cycling, canoeing, group tours, shopping, museums, dining, interesting communities, marinas, golfing, skating, skiing, snowmobiling and more.
