There’s so much to do! Ottawa’s ByWard Market is bursting with a myriad of chic boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and nightlife. There are so many things for you and your teen to explore. For shopping, the Rideau Centre offers a choice of more than 150 stores, as well as views overlooking the Rideau Canal. If you want to sample some fresh local produce, the Ottawa Farmers’ Market, open every Sunday, is perfect for sampling local fare. Feeling adventurous? Take a day trip to Mont Tremblant ski resort, which offers over 100 ski trails for the beginner and the expert!

The ByWard Vista Social Club
It might still be winter but you and your older teen can feel like you’re in a tropical paradise at the 16th floor lounge of the Andaz. Take in the scenery, the live music and the Havana Club rum cocktail specials and a special ceviche menu. Every Thursday in March, the lounge hosts Bueno Vista Social Club, which includes a Cuban inspired menu, live band, and Havana Club Craft Cocktail specials. http://bit.ly/ByWardVistaSocialClub
