Family Vacation and Activities

The summer sure is flying by!  We are nearing the end of July already.  Still haven't did anything with the kids?  I've put together a few places in the Ottawa Valley for the families that are sticking close to home this year. 

Saunders Farm:

Saunders Farm is more than just ghosts and goblins.  They are open all summer long, starting June 28 until September 2, 2013.  They have 100 acres of farm-fresh fun to explore. From their hedge mazes to their pedal carts, there's something for the kid in everyone!  Located Ottawa West (Munster), close enough to enjoy just about any old time.  They are open Tuesdays to Sundays, close Mondays, except on a holiday Monday.  Open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day. 

Don't forget to stop by the Saunders Farm Shop and Bakery and check out their fresh baked goods and gift items.  There's plenty of food choices on the farm too!  Try The Farmers Table and grab a local burger or Annabelle's Ice Cream Hut and Snack Shack for a treat or cold drink. 

Head out to the farm for the day or grab a pass and enjoy farm all year long!  For more information and prices on the different passes please go to

Cosmic Adventures:

Faced with a rainy summer day or maybe it's just too hot to be outside.  Head over to Cosmic Adventures with the kids. They're open 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Located in Ottawa, Ontario.  20,000 sq. ft. multi-level playground.  Can you say F U N!  Designed for kids 0-12 years old.  Safe and clean for your little one. 

Make sure to stop by the Cosmic Starcade (specifically for the twelve and under crowd), and try out the exciting games.

With this much fun, mom and dad may need a break!  Cosmic Adventures has that covered too!  Parents can enjoy the peace and quit of the Cone Of Silence and enjoy free Wi-Fi. 

Your little ones will definitely work up an appetite, head over to the Galaxy Grill and enjoy a burger or pizza.

Logos Land Resort:

It's hot, hot and hot!  Pack up the kids and head over to the Logos Land Resort!  Located near Cobden, Ontario and open 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. weekdays and weekends.  Family oriented water park with attractions for everyone!  Now with the added feature ZIP lining! 

There's more than just the water park here!  There's so much to do you may want to stay more than a day.  If splashing around doesn't interest you, there's always golf, the beach or maybe the animal farm.  Need more adventure then try your hand on the zip line courses, or kayaking! 

Hungry, no problem there's several options there too!  The Grill House is right there on the grounds or you can head into the big Ark to The Genesis Restaurant and Gift Shop.  Beautiful picnic areas are provided also. 

Don't forget the Champlain Museum and Trail.  This is a must see park!  You won't be disappointed or bored.
