    NHL All-Star Game... Ottawa, Canada

    I have heard most opinions on the topic, however, I would like to inquire as to any insight from Bruins fans in the Ottawa area.

    My wife and I have won flight, tickets and accommodations to the game. We arrive Friday evening and leave Monday evening.
    During the down time, is there anything we should or should not do while in the Nation's Capital?

    Been told to bring skates and skate the Canal. Anything else?
    Other than drink alcohol
    .

    If you like Junior hockey sarnia is in town against the 67s on friday night. Always entertaining hockey there. Parliment hill, not sure what access you get on weekends and yes for sure the skate on the canal, always a treat.Not sure where your from and if you have access to a rental car take a few hours and visit the 1000 islands 50 miles south of ottawa.

    From London On. Flying up with Wife. Friend driving up with his wife.
    (6 hours)? We will be going to Game while wives "shop". Didn't realize the 1000 islands were that close to Ottawa. Good idea there Wally, thanks

    Thanks for the link Gilles. Heard to do the Museums, just not sure where they were.

    I'm a massive history geek, so each time I'm in the Capital I kind of blow all my time in the museums.

    This is a decent directory for them

    My personal favourites are Civilization, the National Gallery, the Museum of Nature, and for something really different, the Deifenbunker Cold War Museum.

    Maybe my favourite museum in the country, purely for the absurdity of it.
