"Clothing for all weathers" Weather Tip by hullian
Weather, Ottawa: 13 reviews and 3 photos
Luggage and bags: rucksack and holdall
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: in the summer ottawa is a beautiful place and t-shirts, shorts and sandals can be worn anywhere cos its so damn hot (up in the high 20's and even 30's at times!!) - the best times for this are between June and September. Just sitting outside a pub holding a beer was hard without pouring with sweat. But in the winter 4 months later in December it is such a contrast, snow and ice can cover the paths and its hard to survive the sub-zero temps without gloves, hat, scarf and a big thick duffel coat.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: can be bought there but is best to take your own such as toothbrush, toothpaste, shower gel, shampoo etc..
Photo Equipment: a decent digital camera i found was best to take photos of places but a disposable one works just as well for the cheapos out there!!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: the beach in summer is a very good idea just remember factor 30 but the beach in winter - dont bother!! its too cold, icy and snowy , although gorgeous to look at.
when camping in winter just remember lots of warm clothes and a decent sleeping bag for the coldness and in summer a thin sleeping bag would do fine and you could even bivvy it it gets so warm.
outdoor gear for ottawa city itself skis, skates for riding the rideau canal.
