19 Spots In Ottawa That Are Guaranteed To Step Up Your Insta Game This Winter

New season, new Insta. Fall leaves and pumpkin spice lattes were so last October anyway.

Now that the snow is pretty much here to stay, we’re ready to pull out our phones and VSCO to take some festive and wintery photos. Anything for the ‘gram.

I always say that Ottawa’s prettiest in the winter time. Nothing beats taking a wintery walk through Major’s Hill Park around Christmas when all the trees are covered in lights. And let’s never forget that first snowfall of the season, which thankfully came earlier this year.

Here are 19 spots in Ottawa that look extra fab in the winter that you need to check out:

1. Central Experimental Farm


The blue lights in Confederation Park always grasp my senses and make for a lovely evening walk. #photooftheday #myottawa #christmaslights #confederationpark
