7 Things To Do In Ottawa This Summer

Whether you’re an Ottawa local, or thinking of making a day trip into the city, try out some of these awesome things your Nation’s Capital Region has to offer while the weather is warm!


Kayak at Dow’s Lake

You’ve probably skated on the Rideau Canal. But have you kayaked on Dow’s Lake? Enjoy this man-made lake in the heart of the city and soak up some some sun on the edge of Little Italy.




Kayak too slow for your taste? Try whitewater rafting trips near Parliament Hill. You’ll test your wits and physical limits all while seeing the Hill from a different angle.



Nordik Spa

OK. It’s not Ottawa, but it’s so close it makes the cut. Treat your special someone or grab a group of friends and enjoy the great outdoors in a glamorous and relaxing setting.



Lights on Parliament Hill

When the sun goes down, the lights go on to illuminate the Hill. See amazing light displays that showcase many things that make Canada great.




Ottawa isn’t Niagara or Prince Edward County, but we do have some tasty grapes in the area. If you’re in the east end, check out Domaine Perrault Winery in Navan. In the west end, check out KIN Vineyards or Jabulani Vineyard in Richmond.



Yoga on the Hill

Make the most of your day and health by using your lunch for some good. Yoga takes place on the Hill every Wednesday as long as the weather is decent.



Calypso Theme Waterpark

Take a short trek down the 417 and enjoy a day of water, slides and rides.
