Ottawa is Canada’s enticing capital and Ontario’s historic and cultural hub, boasting picturesque waterways, excellent food hubs, stunning architecture, world-class museums, lush gardens and parks, colourful neighbourhoods, cocktail bars and happening festivals. This multi-cultural city is also home to many iconic attractions and landmarks; Rideau Canal adds to the city’s charm, a beautiful World Heritage Site that first opened in 1832, significant to Canadian heritage. Here you can enjoy a relaxing cruise along the canal, go fishing and take advantage of its surrounding attractions including cycling and walking paths, dining venues, picnic spots and more, which are best enjoyed during the warm summers. In the winter the canal freezes over, which is also an interesting sight as it becomes the world’s largest outdoor skating rink! Another icon of Ottawa is the bustling ByWard Market; it’s one of the city’s most iconic attractions which is home to a range of shops, boutiques, market stalls and food shops, as well as restaurants, pubs and bars – it’s very atmospheric and great for people watching.
