Start the morning the right way

Grab yourself a morning treat, whether it’s a hand-crafted espresso from Starbucks up March Road, or a full breakfast of waffles or crêpes from Luna Crepes & Cafe minutes away at the Kanata Mews Plaza. On your way home, take a few moments next to Shirley’s Brook, the creek that runs right through Morgan’s Creek. It’s a calm and meditative water feature that’s home to a lush ecosystem of greenery right at your front door. Kick off the rest of the day by grabbing your bike from the large foyer storage closet (the newest feature in the Chai and Jasmine) and spend some time cruising along the area’s best multi-use paths and trails. 

Hit the trails

Kanata North has excellent biking trails whether you prefer road cycling or mountain biking. The City of Ottawa has many resources and maps to help you plot out your trip and choose a difficulty level or follow the City’s suggested route. There’s even a winter cycling network in place to keep approximately 40km of pathways cleared during those snowy months. 

One of the area’s favourite spots for mountain biking is the South March Highlands, minutes away down Klondike Road. There are several trails and loops at varying degrees of difficulty for those who want to escape the street and peddle through kilometres of preserved woodland full of mature trees, ponds and swamps.

End the night with a bang

If you’re still energized after an afternoon on the bike, there’s always something happening at the Canadian Tire Centre to cap off the evening with friends. If you’re a hockey fan, the Ottawa Senators play host to teams from around the NHL for most of the year. If you want to catch some live music and performances, global superstars from all genres are always hitting the stage. Either way, you’re in for an unforgettable night.

Sunday shopping

When you need to do your weekly grocery shopping, make all your stops in one place. Steps away from your front door, north on March Road, the RioCentre has a number of neighbourhood amenities like Sobeys, Rexall Drugstore, LCBO and more. If you’re looking for some retail therapy, Tanger Outlets and Kanata Centrum are a 13-minute drive away. Both centres are full of world-class brand name stores, great factory outlet options, and restaurants. Go on, you’ve earned it.
