Ottawa's Prettiest Spots to Fall into Autumn

With September steadily underway, it's time to accept the fact that our fleeting summer season is coming to a close. However, if you're in Ottawa then you're in luck because Fall sights, activities, and foods are rolling out and you don't want to miss this! So dry your tears, grab that scarf, and make sure you add these pretty locations to your bucket list as we fall into Autumn in Ottawa!

Byward Market

Usually when we think of farmer's markets our minds wander to summer, however Ottawa's Byward Market is open year round! This makes for the perfect downtown location to stroll through up to 175 stalls selling things like plants, veggies, flowers, maple products, and arts and crafts! You can't ask for a better Fall backdrop for the 'gram than this!

Saunder's Farm

If you're looking for that perfect pumpkin patch picture, look no further than Saunder's Farm! This Ottawa staple for the Fall season is brimming with photo ops around every bend from the classic pumpkin patch picture, to mazes, hayrides, food stands, and haunted houses. No matter what vibe you're going for this Fall, Saunder's Farm has you covered!

The Nordik Spa 

If you're looking for something a little bit different this Fall, consider visiting The Nordik Spa across provincial lines for some warm relaxation with a view. The Nordik focuses on thermotherapy and relaxation through saunas, baths, saltwater floatation pools, and an infinity pool (who doesn't love a good infinity pool pic?). Depending on your commitment to finding all that is instaworthy - they also have amazing cottages you can rent on site with all of the cozy falls vibes! 


A visit to Pumpkinferno is guaranteed to provide you and your feed tons of Fall content this year! An annual outdoor art exhibit in Ottawa that runs from late September through October that features 7000 handcrafted pumpkins lit all night along a 1km path. It is held in the historic 19th-century Upper Canada village that adds another picturesque element to the event. Flex your evening photography skills and wow your followers at this unmissable Autumn event!


Major's Hill Park

Maybe you're amongst those looking for that no-effort insta shot this fall (hey, we're not judging!). If you're looking for an easily accessible location for that Fall colour infused shot look no further. Standing just above the Rideau Canal, with the classic Ottawa Parliament buildings across the way is Major's Hill Park. Gather those pretty leaves and capture all that is Ottawa right here!
