Our feature e ABCs of Summer Festivals (p. 14) tunes you up for the five biggest festivals, highlighting Grade A performances and tips. Meanwhile, an A-Z Guide (p. 17) spells out the city’s top attractions.
’Tis the season for BBQ. Given backyard grills don’t travel well, our BBQ and burger guide (p. 35) serves up the best local fare – grilled and smoked. Looking for less sizzle? ere are plenty of ways to keep cool. Surprisingly, Ottawa-Gatineau is a beach town, so take a dip (p. 50). For more than a swim, get wet and wild on giant water slides (p. 49) or the Ottawa River’s whitewater rapids.
Shopping for something out of this world? Try Fluevog’s spacey shoe designs, or the Royal Canadian Mint’s Star Trek coins (p. 26). Speaking of Captain Kirk, beam up to the Enterprise at e Starfleet Academy Experience (p. 54). For more earthly battles, Napoleon conquers the Canadian History Museum (p. 49) while Deadly Skies — Air War (p. 62) drops at the Canadian War Museum.
e sunny season is short. So light it up with Northern Lights at Parliament (p. 50) or the Lumiere Festival (p. 11), and follow us at @whereottawa for more top grade entertainment suggestions.
