Welcome to Winterlude in Ottawa! Bienvenue au Bal de Neige à Ottawa!
By Danielle Zehr Perspectives – Sales Associate
A few weeks ago, Ottawa Tourism welcomed Travel Trade workers for 4 days (plus a weekend, in the case of this Perspectives Rep!) to come and see the attractions that Ottawa has to offer when the cold and snow have arrived and Winterlude is in full swing. I had the pleasure of attending, and here are some of my experiences.
Highlights included a walking food tour with C’est Bon Cooking, the Nature Museum, Snow Slides at Jacques Cartier Park with the obligatory BeaverTail. We also checked out a lot of hotels to get a better idea of what is around to offer clients, as well as tried out many different and delicious food spots.
A favourite activity is hard to choose, but my top three have got to be Parc Oméga, Escape Manor and the Aviation Museum. (Wait, top four: Le Nordik Spa!)
Here are some photos of the week:
How about having a red deer come up beside your bus? Would you feed him a carrot?
