Spring has arrived, and now is a perfect time to take your gal pals on a socially distant road trip to beautiful Starved Rock Country.

The Ottawa Visitors Center has partnered with some of the town’s top group tours, delicious dining destinations, luxurious lodging options, and even a relaxing spa, to offer customizable Girls Getaway group excursions.

The special limited-time promotion is an ideal way to get some R&R during this stretch of mild weather. With just a few simple clicks, you’ll be on the way to planning your trip.

Head to to take your pick of available hotels or cottages in the package, offering deeply discounted two-night minimum stays. Then while you’re there, look through the package details and choose your personalized getaway. You and your road trip companions can choose from a variety of restaurants, spa services and activities as you immerse yourselves in the charm of small-town Ottawa.

Once you’ve selected your add-ons, ranging from Wine Through Time historical drinking tours, offered by Awesome Ottawa Tours, to a serene salt cave session at Ottawa’s own Salt Tree Yoga, you’ll be able to pre-pay for meals at some of the area’s most exciting restaurants.

Featured drinking and dining partners include B.A.S.H. Burger and Sushi House, CatsEye Wine Bar, Iniga Pizzeria Napoletana, Jeremiah Joe Coffee, The Lone Buffalo by Tangled Roots Brewing Company and Red Dog Grill. Several of these restaurants offer socially distant outdoor dining spaces for added comfort.

After adding all your stops and including additional options like custom-curated wine and beauty baskets, you’ll receive a personalized itinerary and basket including all your purchases, presented upon check-in at your lodging accommodation.

This package does have a strict cancellation policy due to the scheduling of certain activities and events. People are asked to give at least 48-hour notice for a cancellation. Participants must be 21 years of age.
