Let’s go antiquing
Sunny September weekends are the perfect time to hit the road for a day of exploration in the rural areas outside Ottawa. If vintage and antiques are your jam, take a day trip to one of myriad little towns outside our city. There are often one or two antique or vintage shops in town where you’ll score treasures for your walls.
