Since summer's still sticking around you may as well start checking off everything in the list of things to do before it snows. We all know once the snow hits the ground in Ottawa, it basically becomes hibernation season for most of us. 

From time to time in the winter we decide to brave the cold and do something, but once we head inside we automatically remember why we don't leave the house. Right now the weather isn't that bad, you can go outside for a whole day and come back in without any issues like wet socks or frozen fingers. It's time to take advantage of this fantastic round 2 of summer, here are 33 outdoorsy things you can do before the snow takes over!
