Fall Season: Eastern Canada  (11 Answers)

Myself, plus two companions, are currently planning a trip to the Eastern Canadian cities of Montreal, Ottawa, & Quebec City for September 2016. I wish to travel at a time when the 'Fall Season' is in progress; not earlier. My companions, however, insist that Mid- September would be fine. I am saying: LATE September / early October. I am aware that Canadian Thanksgiving would be the PEAK time to visit in respect to Fall Season, but for reasons irrelevant to this post we have to travel PRIOR to Thanksgiving. I have shown my companions the average temperature readings for the region- but they still believe 'Mid- September' rates as 'Fall Season', while I myself do NOT. So my question is: Would Two weeks make that much difference really ? ( My guess is: Yes, it would) - Thank You !

Places to visit and best to stay for the winter?  (1 Answer)

Was planning to visit Ottawa in August but kids came with an idea of seeing the Winterlude festival. When searched about it, I've also liked the idea of it, but I think it comes on Feb. So, thought will plan and book the rooms now itself.
First and foremost, which all places are the best to visit in Ottawa, especially those which one shouldn't miss in winter?
Second will be a stay, comfortable, and near to Rideau Canal, which I hope is a good idea. I've heard of MAC Suites ( /ottawa/the-suites-of-ottawa ), where does it located exactly? Heard some good reviews, but didn't mention anything about their location. If good, I think the stay will be fine there.
Ok, any good place for me and my husband to hang around for sometime, say a good pub or something, for a private time just for us? :D

Pub for large group  (5 Answers)

Flying in from Seattle for a bit of a high school reunion. We are in our 50's and want to meet in a pub @ 4ish on a Saturday in October (not the long weekend). People will be driving in from all parts of the area like Orleans, Nepean, South Grenville. Looking for a place that has easy parking, easy to get to and good pub food. There will be 14 to 20 of us. I have tried Irene's but they cannot take a large group. Was thinking of Pub Italia or Prescot...suggestions are welcome. Prefer to avoid chain pubs.

Thanks,
Sue.

In September, on which days are the Ottawa-Toronto trains the least busy and least crowded, where my chances of having no passenger next to me are highest? I assume Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays would be most busy, but perhaps Mondays as well? Thanks.
