    Excellent at telling the story of the base and the units that have been stationed there. Interesting section dedicated to the Airborne Regiment as well. The Museum is worth the stop.

    This beach located in Petawawa on the mighty Ottawa River is a great place to catch some rays, and cool off in the river. Also great for boat watching and Sunsets. You can also fish around sunset for Pickrel as the river is deep near the point towards the boat launch.

    There is a lovely stretch of rapids that runs through the park. I tried both fly-fishing and also using a spinner.

    There were plenty of fish around, small bass and then another kind of fish that I had never caught before. They were plentiful and easy to catch. I think that they may have been Grass Carp (an invasive Asian fish).

    The park has a few picnic tables and is a good place to have lunch.

    We visit the village during the regular season as well as their special events. Halloween is a lot of fun, Christmas is magical. Everyone should visit this place.

    This course is on base however you do not need to go through security to go there. It has lovely views of the Ottawa River where it meets the Petawawa River. Hidden gem!

    This is a fun, interactive shop with lots of good-quality games and toys to try out. It's locally owned, and the service is awesome! Just the other day, my mother-in-law ordered a gift for my daughter and it showed up at our door SEVEN MINUTES later! (World record!?!) When we called to thank her, she was baffled: "But I JUST ordered it!" Sooo much better than a big box store or mega online retailer!

    Great escape room, thought provoking, challenging with lots of surprises, well worth the time and money to tackle this challenge. Will definitely return to future rooms!

    I take the 2 hour road trip often to this quaint store that is packed to the ceiling with wonderful quality country decor with the best prices in the Ottawa region. They have signs, country stars, bedding, candles, country dishes, clocks of all sizes and the list goes on - the owner always gets the most trendy of things in country decor. The staff are always friendly and helpful and for those who can't drive there they have a Facebook page and post pictures of new arrivals almost every other day.
