Owning or renting an apartment in Ottawa provides you with a wide range of things to do in the city. This statement is especially true if you happen to live in an apartment in the downtown core of Ottawa. With quick access to the Gatineau hills, Ottawa’s south side, and the LRT heading eastwards, there is a seemingly endless amount of activities in Ottawa to participate in. 

The long list of fun things to do in Ottawa gets even longer when fall arrives. Fall activities in Ottawa are typically fun and engaging for families, couples, and friends who are looking to make the most of their city’s most beautiful season. 

Pink Lake Ottawa

We’ll be listing 3 things to do in Ottawa this fall season – we hope you can take the time to enjoy all of them!

Enjoy the Views

The views surrounding our capital are not to be missed. We’re lucky enough to be situated between vast natural areas, such as Gatineau Park and the Greenbelt, that contain diverse species of flora and fauna. Trees change, animals scurry to gather supplies for winter, and humans take in the views! Here are three places to visit before the snow arrives:

Gatineau Park

Despite its location in the neighbouring province, Quebec, Gatineau Park is a short drive from Centretown and offers residents unmatched access to wildlife. Walk around the rim of Pink Lake and awe at the contrast between the lake’s pristine waters and the beautiful changing leaves.

Mer Bleue Bog

Mer Bleue Bog

While in a similar setting to Gatineau Park, Mer Bleue Bog’s experience could not be more different. Enjoy a walk on the Bog’s boardwalk and appreciate a different side of Ottawa’s outdoors. In addition to gorgeous views of the trees, the boardwalk over the water offers visitors a unique outdoor experience. Just don’t fall in!

Hog’s Back Falls

This one is for those who are city folks at heart. Conveniently nestled between Mooney’s Bay and Vincent Massey Park, visitors can enjoy a nice view of the waterfalls and the surrounding rock and tree formations. The convenient location means your Ottawa apartment is just a stone’s throw away!

Visit a Spa

Speaking of Gatineau Park, you’ll want to visit Le Nordik Spa in Chelsea to get the full Gatineau Hills experience. This destination is modeled after the Scandinavian approach to spas and hot springs. If you and your better half are searching for fun things to do in Ottawa, look no further!

Get Spooked on a Haunted Hay Ride

Starting from humble origins in the Gloucester Shopping Centre, this spooky attraction has grown into Ottawa’s #1 destination for spooks are scares at Proulx Farms. The haunted hayride is included in the price of a ticket and takes you on a trail through a haunted forest with horrifying beasts and creatures lurking in the shadows. Enter if you dare…
