LIGHTS, SHOPPING, HOLIDAYS!
If you need a little help getting into the holiday spirit, take a quick shopping getaway to Ottawa! In early December, the Christmas Lights Across Canada bathe the Capital’s national sites and landmarks including Parliament Hill and the Rideau Canal in dazzling colour. The hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights provide a magical backdrop for sightseeing and shopping. If you’re looking for unique shops and boutiques, head to the historic ByWard Market district, then step inside the 160-store Rideau Centre-both are just a short block east of Parliament Hill. At the end of the day, discover the surprisingly diverse and accomplished culinary community that’s making the Capital a favoured foodie destination, then take in a command performance of music, dance or theatre at the National Arts Centre. Book a Festive Delights package and come back for the holidays!
