Ottawa

Proudly Canada’s capital, and the second largest city in the province of Ontario, visitors can find anything their hearts desire in Ottawa. With an unlimited selection of fine dining, historic attractions, new age attractions, museums, galleries and festivals this vibrant city showplaces the best of Canada and its history.

Boasting of Canada’s brave beginnings, several major national attractions have a certain lure when in Ottawa. So, put a few historic stops on the trip list, for instance; the Canadian War Museum, the Museum of Civilization, the National Aviation Museum, the Canada Agriculture Museum, the Royal Canadian Mint or Parliament Hill.

Jump on the scene for entertainment like the jazz and blues venues throughout the city, the National Gallery, the Science and Technology Museum (great for families) and why not take in some of the thrilling festivals. Throughout the year, hot or cold, the seasons bring celebration in no better way – festivals! Consider partaking in one of these summer events - the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival (one of the largest in the world), Canada Day (Canada’s birthday July 1st), the Bluesfest, or The Fringe Festival .
Winter brings on of the best known Canadian snowy festivals Winterlude with talented ice carvers and snowy sculptures. And, as a gift from the Dutch, spring time begins with what they call The Tulip Festival.

Pleasantly, travelers can tour much of Ottawa’s fare on foot. The city is exceptionally pedestrian friendly. Walk to explore or walk to shop. Some highlights include; The Byward Market and its day time restaurants, souvenir shops and fresh goods, the pedestrian oriented Sparks Street which is one block over from Parliament Hill. Another great stroll would be through the Westboro Village, a popular tourism and shopping zone, and includes several outdoor stores (for clothing or equipment), restaurants and plenty of coffee shops to stop at and put your bags down.

If guests are looking to delight in the arts or if the weather calls for some entertainment indoors enjoy the National Arts Centre, the Great Canadian Theatre Company, the Ottawa Little Theatre, or Ottawa’s Irish theatre, Tara Players.

Whatever your pleasure, Ottawa offers everything at your leisure.
