We arrived in Ottawa from Toronto to attend the Governor General's Decoration of Bravery ceremony this past Friday morning. My husband was one of the 41 recipients of the Medal of Bravery award. To start Rideau Hall is so historic and beautiful and should be enjoyed and shared when visiting the Ottawa area. The staff during the event were nothing less than amazing! The history of Rideal Hall is quite amazing and extremely interesting.

When in Ottawa, this is hands down the coolest thing to see and it's free. We had an awesome guide who was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. Top notch! She took us to both the house and senate chambers as well as the library and some other amazing spaces. She had a perfect blend of commentary and group engagement. She also was a very succinct and excellent speaker with a strong voice.

I highly recommend the white glove tour if you are a lover of history and/or antiques. From the moment I entered this grand house to the time I had to leave it was mesmerizing and time flew by. My favourite rooms were the dining room and the library. So many wonderful artifacts (such as Mary Queen of Scots prayer stool and Robbie Burns chair) paintings, furniture and architectural details like the fabulous plaster ceiling in the dining room.
