How to Spend Your Family Day in Ottawa


The first long weekend of the year is here, and what better one to start the year with than Family Day? After the longest January, and the most snow we could possibly imagine, this glorious day to sleep in, relax, and spend time with your family arrived just in time. Question is, how should you spend your Family Day? Well, we have some ideas for you!


We live in Ottawa, and the Rideau Canal is one of our favourite landmarks. Winter or summer, it’s a beautiful strip to explore. Strap on those skates and get out there! And yes, you deserve all those Beavertails you want to eat. If you’re still feeling a little treat after your skate and beavertails, check out some of the best places in Ottawa to grab hot chocolate!


Whether you cozy up inside or want to head out for a treat, movies are a great way to spend your day. Get your favourite snacks and veg out.


Who doesn’t love a good brunch? And with a long week, that’s one more brunching opportunity for you to take advantage of. If you missed our post last weekend about the best spots for pancakes in Ottawa, you can check it out here to help give you some brunch location inspiration.


Family Day marks the last day of Winterlude. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, this is your last opportunity! Check out the Snowflake Kingdom for a winter wonderland dream come true.

Regardless of how your spend your Family Day, we hope you are able to sit back and take a few hours to relax!
