Summer holidays (for the kids) are just days away which means we are going to be thinking of places to go and things to see this summer; you know, to keep everybody’s sanity intact and all.

Here is a list of things to do and places to see right here in Ottawa this summer that I thought you would all like! 

Museums and History.
Ottawa has several museums to check out such as the Canadian Museum of nature, the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum, Canada Agriculture and Food Museum and one of my favourites, the Museum of Science and Technology.
Parliament Hill will give you a taste of Canada with its historical buildings. There is usually a fun party on the hill for Canada Day too! 

Recreational Parks.
Jacques Cartier Park isn’t in Ottawa but a quick trip over the bridge to the Quebec side will have you loving the outdoors.

Amusement Parks.
Just outside Ottawa, you can find Calypso Waterpark (Limoges) and Parc Omega (Montebello), both of which are personal family favourites. 

In the city.
Various malls like Rideau Centre, St. Laurent Shopping Centre, Bayshore and more await your discovery.
The Byward Market also offers various activities during the summer, fresh market goods to purchase and great dining at different restaurants. If you are from out of town there are lots of great hotels downtown as well as buses to take you wherever you need to go throughout the city. 

We have been living in Ottawa for over 10 years and although it has changed over the while, we still love our city and hope you do too. What are some fun things you can do where you live? Leave a comment below, let's chat!
