I will go stir-crazy if I am stuck at home

Help me get away for the weekend! I'm in Ottawa and need to get out of town. Problem: it's Columbus Day/ Thanksgiving and everything is booked everywhere.
I'm stressed and overworked and have decided to take an extra day off, either Friday or Tuesday, to give myself a full four day weekend (Monday is Canadian Thanksgiving). Yay! But where should I go?
My boyfriend and I are in Ottawa; we originally wanted to go camping in the Adirondacks (Adirondak Loj at Lake Placid) but completely forgot that it's Columbus Day weekend in the States. And leaf-peeping season. Needless to say, everything is booked everywhere.
Metafilter, where should we go, what should we do? Camping and hiking is preferable but really the main requirement is to be somewhere we can relaaax and decompress. Fairly budget-friendly would be nice and I prefer to be out of the Ottawa/ Gatineau region so I can literally escape for the weekend.
