This episode we are exploring a fun and unique family travel destination: the capital of Canada – Ottawa. We sleep with wolves, go on a hunt for the best ice-cream (and an escaped skunk), zip-line between two provinces and skate on the longest skating rink in the world. Mama Knows Best. We join Julie Findlay, writer of award-winning blog ‘Momma in the Know’, the ideal person to take us on a perfect family weekend in Ottawa, filling us in on the best museums, hotels, neighbourhoods, restaurants, ice cream and more. Don’t Take Our Word For It. We’re throwing the kids in with the wolves. Well, kind of … We’re joined by Keira, 11, and Cailin, 14, as they tell us about a truly unique experience sleeping with the wolves at Ottawa’s best wildlife experience Parc Omega.
Families Asking Questions Who’s the best person to ask questions for a family podcast? Kids, of course! Two kids show up our presenters in an interview with a wildlife expert from Parc Omega. Want to know what to do with a runaway skunk and how a bison beats a snowstorm? You’re in the right place. Bedtime Story Brace yourself. Local writer Laura Paquet, author of the Ottawa Road Trips blog, takes us step-by-step on zip-line ride across the Ottawa River. It’s the only zip line in the world that crosses two provinces from Ottawa to Quebec and is the best way to see both cities in a single spectacular trip. We also hear about the best day trips and weekends away from Ottawa’s capital.
