Things to do in the Outaouais in April
In April, we welcome the good weather with open arms. The snow slowly gives way to grass, and the brighter sun and longer days energize us. There are more opportunities to get out of the house, and we stay up later. It’s official: spring has arrived and summer will soon be here!
Visit the chocolate shops
The hunt is on! Continue the Easter Bunny’s proud tradition and organize an Easter egg hunt for your children.
Kill two birds with one stone and support local businesses by sampling their chocolate surprises. The Outaouais has several chocolate shops that will delight the whole family, so you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Relax at the spa
Make way for total well-being thanks to the spas of the Outaouais. When it comes to pampering your body or enjoying a relaxing massage or an unparalleled spa experience, give yourself over to the calm of the Outaouais. In the largest spa in North America or on a downtown rooftop, live the present moment to the fullest and find peace of mind!
Until April 27, it’s two for one at Amerispa Spa Nordique Cantley! On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, get two admissions to the thermal experience for the price of one. Here’s your ultimate opportunity to relax at the spa with a loved one. Namaste.
See a show
In the Outaouais, we laugh out loud, we dance to the sound of flawless musical performances, and we attend plays that make us think. Comedy, music or theatre, there’s something for everyone!
With their exceptional acoustics, comfortable seats, iconic stages and diverse programming, the Outaouais’ performance venues have memorable evenings in store for you. All that’s left to do is buy one or more tickets to see your favourite artists!
Tour the microbreweries
Sunny days can also give you a thirst for a refreshing glass of beer! And good local beer means craft beer. The industry is booming: discover the Outaouais and its flavours through its hops! Head to one of our microbreweries to sit and socialize over a cold one, or stock up on beer to enjoy later in the comfort of your home.
Do a little shopping
Spring is also about renewal! We change our wardrobe, our décor and our lifestyle.
Spring shopping is your ticket here. Browse boutiques with a unique cachet in search of your next find, or stroll through the Promenades Gatineau, a major shopping centre that’s home to over 150 stores.
