Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, is in the state of Ontario and is great to visit at any time of the year. It is a city rich in culture, and features attractions such as Parliament Hill which is home to neo-Gothic buildings set on the bank of the Ottawa River. From Ottawa Airport to Ottawa it is approximately 20km. Summers in Ottawa are warm and humid, while winters are very cold and commonly sees snowfall and ice.
Ottawa is steeped in Canadian pride which is very evident at Parliament Hill. It has beautiful gothic buildings where you can hear the Peace Tower’s bells chiming at each quarter hour. The canal system of Ottawa has been added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to its historical significance. If you would like to see Ottawa from a different angle, taking a cruise along the canal is a great way to do so. Winter is magical as the canal turns into an outdoor skating rink. In terms of shopping, Byward Market is the place to be as here you can find everything from fresh produce to local handicrafts and as well as an abundance of snack bars and cafes. The Notre-Dame Cathedral is the largest and oldest church in Ottawa and is best seen from a river cruise. Ottawa has plenty of recreational activities on offer, including museums, theatres and the neighbourhood of York Street where you can dance the night away! Ottawa is a jewel in Canada’s crown.
Ottawa is a great holiday destination for people of all ages. The children’s museum will be sure to leave young history buffs amazed, while couples and solo travellers will also be well looked after with tours of the city or even a kayak trip on the river.
