Top 5 Fall Great Date Ideas in Ottawa (with Video)


As we kiss summer goodbye, we look forward to cooler weather but, a beautiful city filled with colors and unlimited things to do! Fall is my favorite time of year, not only because of the leaves changing a multitude of colors but because I can get my boots and jackets out, get cozy with some warm drinks while I take walks feeling the cool breeze against my face. There’s also lots of food and beverage festivals to attend. So much to do! I can’t wait!! There’s so much to do in Ottawa during fall. Here are my top 5 fall date ideas in Ottawa … would love to hear your ideas too!

Top 5 Fall Great Date Ideas in Ottawa

1. Gatineau Park

Just a stone’s throw from downtown Ottawa is a whole different world. If you love nature and beautiful scenery, you can’t miss heading out to Gatineau Park for a hike or a walk. Bring some warm drinks and comfortable shoes and enjoy the beauty the Laurentians have to offer. Along the Champlain Parkway, there are several lookouts for great photo ops. You can also visit the Mackenzie King estate as well as attend Fall Rhapsody in October. So much to do.

2.  Beverage Festivals

If you’re a foodie and you love trying new foods and beverages, then fall is a great time to discover a new favorite! There’s the Whiskey Festival (my personal fave), the Wine & Food Festival or for beer aficionados you won’t want to miss Oktoberfest.

3. Enjoy Delicious Food

If drinking isn’t your thing, or you’re on a budget then walking through one of Ottawa’s Farmer’s Markets is a must! You can visit the different vendors, pick up some fall flavors and the best part is that you’ll be supporting local! Different restaurants in the area also offer local product menus, so check them out. You can also go apple or pumpkin picking or visit a cranberry farm.

4. Haunting Fun

If you love Halloween, then you’re in luck because there are some really fun things to do around Ottawa. If you like to be spooked then you can’t miss Ottawa’s very popular Haunted Walks. The best part is that during their various tours, you learn about Ottawa’s dark and shady side along with some great historical facts. You can also go to Saunders Farm where their “Haunting Season” and “Fright Fest” is sure to get your heart racing (and your date a little closer to you).

5. Exploring a New Neighborhood 

There are so many gorgeous neighborhoods in Ottawa and I’ll bet you really haven’t explored all of them. Go for a walk, window shop and look at the houses. Finish off your date and warm up by grabbing a hot drink at a local establishment. Check out areas such as the Glebe, Preston, Island Park, Westboro, Hintonburg or even Rockliffe Park. You can even walk down Colonel By or Queen Elizabeth Drive.

Ottawa isn’t where fun went to die! It’s actually a great place to date. There’s so much to do and discover if you only give it a chance! All these suggested dates not only give you something to do, they also are a great way to get to know the person you’re on a date with. How? Well, the activities make you less nervous because you have something to focus on other than being on the date AND these activities give you countless things to talk about / comment on with your date.
