For a child is there anything more fun in the world than playing? Pay is a time filled with discovery, growth, and creativity.  Outdoor play is just as essential, if not more so. Playing outdoors not only promotes well-being, but physical development as well. According to reports children who are given ample amounts of time out doors have less stress then those who remain indoors.

There’s a  growing range of outdoor play equipment and exploratory items which helps the learning needs of our children. For instance, toddlers can Outdoor Sandbox with Canopydiscover a world of new things while digging in the dirt. A well positioned sand box becomes the ideal place for children to enjoy time outside. This adorable wooden sandbox from KidKraft  is made of weather-resistant wood and comes with a mesh cover that protects the sand in inclement weather. It also features a canopy that helps keep kids in the shade and out of the hot sun. Once children begin to play in the sand they will often be outside for hours. On a bright sunny day, this can cause issues, and a sandbox with a  canopy is really a great idea.

Looking for a delicious meal in Ottawa? With so many great places to eat, it’s impossible to to say which are the best restaurants in Ottawa. My son an Ottawa resident has some recommendations for the Ottawa traveler.

Located on bank street the Clock Tower Brew Pub is a two-level corner pub featuring a large patio for summer lounging. They have five mainstay beers available year round, with a number of seasonal beers being served throughout the year. Food is a mixture of traditional pub-grub and more exotic dishes.

The Fox & Feather Pub and Grill is a downtown Ottawa pub located on Elgin St. Established in 1995, the restaurant is housed in a 100 plus year old heritage building and spread out over 3 floors. 14 different beers from around the world are on tap and they offer a great selection of food.

Located in the historic Byward Market and Ottawa’s west end, Zak’s Diner, an authentic 50′s style kid friendly diner is a local favorite, featuring bright colours, checkered decor, and cushioned booths. The menu is packed with all-day breakfasts, club sandwiches, burgers and Zak’s famous milkshakes.

The Works: Gourmet Burger Bistro

The Works

Located in Westboro, The Works is a Gourmet Burger Bistro. Named “Best Burger” in Ottawa 9 years in a row, this is the place to dine. With 68 wild & The Workscrazy Burger toppings, to four bun choices and  7 sensational Burger Patty choices from Certified Organic Beef and Ground Turkey; to Ground Beef and the health conscious Fresh Chicken Breast, Veggie Burger, fresh portobello mushroom cap, and the low fat domestic free elk, The Works doesn’t fall short on choices. For those  who are starting to think gluten is everywhere- you will find a gluten free menu just for you.  

Start your meal off with  breaded  deep fried dills or how about  the Works world famous Tower-O-Rings?  Crispy breaded onions rings served with 2 dipsticks for dippin’ is a great appetizer.

I have previously dined at the Works in Kingston, Ontario on several occasions with my husband. This was my first time dining at The Works in Westboro. Parking is ample in the area, with lots of  side streets to park on. Read more…

Expect Even More at Delta Ottawa City Centre

Ottawa is a unique and beautiful city that offers an abundance of things to do. Admire the view from the Champlain Lookout in Gatineau or cruise along Canadian Museum of Naturethe Rideau Canal. Take a tour of the Supreme Court of Canada or if you’re interested in history, culture and arts, visit Ottawa’s impressive galleries and museums that feature stunning artifacts.The newly renovated Canadian Museum of Nature offers free admission on Thursday nights from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Situated in the business district, Delta Ottawa City Centre is a seven min walk to Parliament Hill, where every summer morning at 10:00am, you can experience the Changing of the Guard.  While on Parliament Hill, experience the “whispering wall.”  If you have someone stand or sit at either end you can hear what the other person whispers. 

My son who lives in Ottawa along with his girlfriend who was up visiting from Kingston took in the bilingual Sound and Light Show on Parliament Hill. The show takes place every night after dark between early July and early September. Huge images are projected onto the Parliament Buildings, using them as a giant screen.

Leave your vehicle parked in the underground parking at Delta Ottawa City Centre and take a 20 min walk over to Rideau Centre,  Ottawa’s premier shopping destination with over 150 stores. After a morning of shopping, buy fresh bread, fresh cold-cuts, cheese and vegetables from ByWard Market, then have a picnic at Major’s Hill Park, a 20 min walk or a short drive from Delta Ottawa City Center.Delta Ottawa City Centre

Take an afternoon swim in Delta Ottawa City Centre indoor heated saltwater pool, or have an afternoon cocktail at the Lift Restaurant’s bar located inside of the Delta Ottawa City Centre.

After your afternoon swim relax in your deluxe,  modedeluxe or  modeclub hotel room.

On our recent trip to Ottawa we stayed at the Delta Ottawa City Centre in a mode-deluxe room situated on the eighth floor. One thing  I should note if  this is the first time staying at the hotel opt for valet parking. Valet Parking is available for $27.00 + tax, while self parking is available for $22.00 + tax. Self parking is a confusing hassle. We had to circle the block several times, before we could figure out how to get into the underground garage. Once in the garage we had to figure out where to park and how to get into the hotel.

Customer service seems to be very important to this hotel, which is very refreshing. From check in to check out staff insured that our stay was enjoyable. The concierge went so far as to give a brief history of the area and a map so we wouldn’t get lost.

Upon check-in our daughter received an age-specific “Kids’ Essentials” kit, which is given to all children from infant to age 7.
