Gloucester Vacation Packages
Gloucester is a great place to stay while you are exploring Ottawa as a large number of the area’s star attractions are close. Two destinations that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Canada Aviation and Space Museum and the iconic Canada Science and Technology Museum. Also worth checking out are the Place D'Orleans Shopping Center and the Promenades de L'Outouais.
Gloucester has plenty of museums, exhibits and show venues nearby that allow visitors to really get a feel for the area. Take the time to see some of the museums such as Bytown Museum, Currency Museum and the Museum of Nature. To experience the city’s dynamic artistic culture, book a show at one of the acclaimed cultural performance centers such as the National Arts Centre. There are plenty of popular art galleries to visit including the Ottawa Art Gallery, the Galerie SAW Gallery and the National Gallery of Canada.
When it’s time to take a break from the noisy streets of Ottawa, visit the nearby outdoor areas. Enjoy some of the scenic city parks such as Lansdowne Park, Strathcona Park and Confederation Park. Hike around the grounds of the Major's Hill Park.
Go to Rideau Centre, the St. Laurent Centre and Byward Market for some retail therapy.
Discover Gloucester’s heartland at Frank Clair Stadium. This is home to Ottawa Redbacks football team in summer and the Ottawa Fury soccer team. Relive the match’s greatest moments with local fans after the game in a nearby pub.
