About

Do you live in or around Ottawa? Are you looking for fun excursions for a day, a weekend or longer? Then Ottawa Road Trips is for you!

On this site, I write about daytrips, weekend getaways and serious road trips for fun-loving explorers of all sorts: families and singles, history buffs and thrill seekers, foodies and music lovers, and more. Whether you want to go to Wakefield for the afternoon, Prince Edward County for the weekend or New York state for a week, you'll find ideas here.

And who am I, you ask? My name is Laura Byrne Paquet and I'm an Ottawa-based freelance travel writer. I've been writing about Eastern Ontario, West Quebec and points beyond for over 20 years, for publications as diverse as National Geographic Traveler, Chatelaine and the Ottawa Citizen.
