Maybe you're not into road trips. Maybe you'd rather fly, boat, or you just don't enjoy being in a car for a long period of time. Well, this is your lucky day. These ice cream shops are 40 minutes max outside of Ottawa, so it's perfect for everyone!
No matter what, ice cream is always worth it. Food is always worth it. Especially in the summer, you'll be thanking me for this little hidden gems all around Ottawa. You're welcome!
