Third Night Free promotion

24 Feb

Thinking of coming to Ottawa for the Canadian Tulip Festival? Maybe to catch the Pop Life exhibit at the National Gallery of Canada this summer? Maybe for Canada Day, or the rockin’ Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest?

Maybe for the grand reopening of the Canadian Museum of Nature in May, or the opening of Calypso Waterpark in June?

Well, hop to it, because if you book your Ottawa getaway before March 5, 2010, you can get your Third Night Free at participating hotels.

What a deal!

Le Cordon Bleu chocolate demonstration!

16 Feb

Mmmmm… chocolate. Is there anything better? Well, what about learning to make fabulous chocolate creations from a Le Cordon Bleu chef? That’s what you’ll see in these videos!

Chef Christian Faure, who holds the impressive designation Meilleur ouvrier de France, and who is one of the world’s great pastry chefs, held court recently at Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa‘s facility. Enjoy! (And yes, it tasted as good as it looked!)

Have you booked your Winterlude getaway?

26 Jan

Despite unseasonably warm temperatures yesterday that have temporarily closed the Rideau Canal Skateway, it’s full steam ahead for Winterlude 2010, to be held on weekends from February 5-21.

Have you booked your Winterlude getaway yet? Ottawa Tourism offers a romantic Winterlude Rendezvous for Two package as well as a family-friendly Winterlude Family Getaway package. Both offer accommodation at a range of hotels and the ability to add admission to a variety of cultural attractions, such as the National Gallery of Canada, Canadian Museum of Civilization, Canadian War Museum and more!

As most Winterlude activities are free, that makes for an amazing weekend away! And when you think that many hotels offer a Third Night Half Price option, your weekend getaway just got even better!

See you on the ice!
