19 Things To Do In Ottawa To Have The Best Summer Ever If You Don't Drink

You don't need to drink to have fun.

"Let's go get drinks and catch up!"

"This weather makes me want an iced cold beer."

We get it. It's the 'cool' thing to do when it's summer. Sangria on a patio, or a day spent at the beach day drinking. It is so much fun to involve alcohol, but having fun definitely doesn't need to involve alcohol either. 

If you're someone who doesn't drink for various reasons, or you're trying to save money by limiting your drinking, this article is for you. There is no law that says you need to drink to have fun, and definitely not in Ottawa. So here are 19 things to do in Ottawa to have the best summer ever if you don't drink.
