Dixie Chicks in the Spring
Anyone who loves country music has heard of the Dixie Chicks
. They came out with Wide Open Spaces in 1998 and Fly in 1999, which won them numerous Grammy awards. Over the years, they've won 13 Grammys and have sold over 30 million albums. While it could be said they are the best selling female country singers, they're actually the biggest female band in sales across the U.S.'s entire history. The country powerhouse trio will be touring in April when they'll hit the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa. They'll also be in Montreal and Hamilton in April. The Canadian Tire Centre
has other performers like The Weeknd on May 28, 2017 as well as events like the Monster Spectacular in June.
When your favorite band or event tour bus rolls into the city, you can also roll in on your own rented bus with all your family and friends aboard. It eliminates the need to find parking for all the cars you'd need to transport the group. A bus rental can be split among the entire group, which will likely be a savings versus trying to find and pay for parking at the event.
Jabulani Vineyard and Winery
Whether you have an event like a wedding or other family event, you can visit the Jabulani Vineyard and Winery
with your entire group. There's no restaurant on site, but they welcome guests to bring a picnic lunch. It's a gorgeous location with a tasting patio and retail store. They have tasting sessions during the day with tours happening in the summer. When you visit Jabulani, you'll be seated at an oak barrel table overlooking the stunning view of the vineyard. It's quite a special view to take in with good friends and loved ones.
The tours start in June and last approximately 2 hours. Tour guests will be able to walk among the vines and learn how the vineyard makes its wine. After the tour, there's a wine sampling with 10 wines as well as lessons on how to taste the wine as well as learn why you taste certain flavors. There are a sampling of cheese, fruits and breads available at the wine tasting too. Tour tickets must be purchased in advance, and large groups will need to request special tables.

There's a lovely park in the area where you'll be able to soak up the history of this location.
The Rideau Canal and the Locks
are a great way to spend a few hours. They are large wooden doors that are opened and closed by hand much as they were when installed in 1832. You can sit and watch the staff open and close the locks using a hand crank on either side of the lock as boats wait to enter.
There could be a dozen in your group or fifty, and you'll all enjoy yourselves on a trip to this wonderful area of Canada where you can take in a concert without worrying about the parking situation or costs or spend the day touring Parliament Hill and the Rideau Canal and the Locks.
