Summer staycation

What's a staycation you ask? Well, it's very simple a vacation at home. Not your immediate home but your hometown and surrounding area. Most people have never taken advantage of the many activities and events in their own city and Ottawa is one of the most active cities around. Here are some great suggestions for your Ottawa staycation.

The Changing of the Guard. Takes place at Parliment Hill from June to August every morning at 10am (weather permitting)

The RCMP Musical Ride. At the RCMP stables minutes form downtown. May to October between 10am and 2pm, tours occur every half hour.

Ottawa Sunday Bike Days. The Ottawa River Parkway is closed every Sunday morning from 9am to 1pm starting Victoria Day weekend until Labour Day weekend. Bike, Inline skate, walk or run but get out for some fun!

The Ottawa Dragon Boat Races. At the Canoe and Kayak club at Mooney's Bay from June 19-21.

Ottawa International Jazz Festival from June 25 - July 5. Acts include: Al Green, The 3 Tenors, and many many more.

Bluesfest July 8 - 19. This year's acts include: Blue Rodeo, KISS, Our Lady Peace and many many more.

Other great activities: padle boating on Dow's Lake, Free Thursdays at all Ottawa Museums, hiking at the Lac Philippe caves in the Gatineau Hills, take a boat cruise along the canal or Outaouais river, Le Nordik spa (for adults), Park Omega and taking in the food and culture in the ByWard Market.

A staycation is a great way to connect with friends and family and the great city you live in!
