Winterlude packages now available!
I know, I know — you don’t necessarily want to think about snow and ice while it’s still October. However, for those of you who plan far in advance, or who know they’re going to be in Ottawa for business or pleasure in February… you should know that our Winterlude packages are now available.
Winterlude is a fun, mostly free festival celebrating winter in Canada’s capital region. Most programming happens on weekends between February 4 to 21 (Family Day), 2011. Skating on the 7.8 km (4.8 miles) of the Rideau Canal Skateway (weather permitting) is a key activity, but so are outdoor performances, snow and ice slides, ice sculptures, restaurant promotions and more!
The Winterlude Family Getaway is aimed at, well, families and includes accommodation at your choice of hotel and a Rideau Centre Savings Directory (for some great downtown shopping!). In addition, you can add on a family visit to your favourite museum: whether it’s the Crazy Kitchen at the Canada Science & Technology Museum or the creepy critters of the Animalium exhibit at the newly renovated Canadian Museum of Nature.
Meanwhile, the Winterlude Rendezvous for Two also includes accommodations and the Rideau Centre Savings Directory, plus the chance to add on a museum visit (maybe the permanent collection at the National Gallery of Canada, or the poignant stories of the Canadian War Museum) or maybe you’d prefer a $50 gift certificate for Holtz Spa, tickets to an Ottawa Senators games, a meal at Le Cordon Bleu Bistro @ Signatures, or a performance at the National Arts Centre. You choose what works for you!
Hope to see you in Ottawa this winter!
