Another weekend is on the horizon and we're here to make the most of it. So if you're looking for things to do in Ottawa this weekend, August 21-23, look no further. From epic outdoor adventures to cozy patio dates, the capital has you covered when it comes to good times and chill vibes. 

You can admire your city from new heights this weekend with a sky-high tour on one of Ottawa’s adorable biplanes. 

And if heights aren't your thing, don't worry. You can take in parts of the capital while floating on a tube down the Ottawa River.

Now, that’s what we call living our best lives. 

The sunflowers at The Experimental Farm are blooming now as well, so you can wander through golden fields and snap something cute for the 'gram.

And if you're hungry, you can dine next to a stunning waterfall or grab some liquid nitrogen ice cream. 

Basically, there's a little something to excite everyone.

So take a peek at the list below, and start mapping out those weekend adventures ASAP.
