Ottawa Day Trip Ideas

Though you could never run out of things to do in Ottawa, you’ll miss some great experiences if you don’t venture to see what the surrounding area outside the city has to offer. Here are some of the best day trips from Ottawa.

Upper Canada Village

Drive an hour and half outside of Ottawa to experience life in the 1860s. This small historical village includes beautiful gardens, farmland, and authentic buildings from more than a century ago. Learn about history, enjoy a picnic, and get some great photos.

Bonnechere Caves

To get a taste of the outdoors and thrill of the unknown, head to The Bonnechere Caves. This destination is also 90 minutes from Ottawa and offers something totally different from city life. See bats, waterfalls, fossils, and feel the thrill of total underground darkness in these natural caves.

Perth, Ontario

If you head one hour outside of Ottawa, you can experience the quaint and charming scenes of Perth. This tourist town has festivals going on all throughout the year, as well as endless boutiques, coffee shops, and walking paths to help you enjoy life at a slower pace.

Luxury Car Rental
