Welcome ... To Westport, Ontario ...
Westport - on Upper Rideau Lake
Westport, Ontario, Canada, is a lovely resort village on the shore of one of the Rideau Lakes, connected to the Rideau Canal System, and has many quaint shops and boutiques. It is "only" 200+ years old, making it the "youngest" of our 5 Westports - and more relaxed than most. It is near the Rideau Canal which connects Ottawa and Kingston and is only 45 miles from the USA border near the Thousand Islands. Bucolic
Like much of the surrounding area, Westport received a large number of Irish immigrants in the 1840s through the 1860s, following the Great Famine. St. Edward's Catholic Church at the corner of Concession and Bedford, built in 1859, was an early cultural centre for the largely Catholic Irish immigrants. Direct ties to Ireland.
Westport is a perfect stop and is included on our English Canada Tours and is a Stop on Our 5 Westports - The Grand Westports Tours, including Kingston via the Rideau Canal to Ottawa, and the Thousand Islands - all in Ontario Province. It is most similar to 2 other Westports in Ireland and Massachusetts - all summer vacation villages on a large, beautiful, body of water - for sailing, boating, houseboat rentals, kayaking, and just hanging-out waterside. Lovely. The last train departed in 1952.
