ottawa canada Ottawa Canada is a culture-rich city that welcomes some seven million visitors each year. With a vast assortment of museums and architectural points of interest, most of those seven million visitors go home with a positive impression of the city. The majority of visitors use Ottawa MacDonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW) as their gateway to the city, although larger international airports in Toronto and Montreal can also provide passage. Ottawa’s airport is located about five miles south of downtown, with taxis, shuttles and hire cars serving as transportation between the two. When it comes to architecture in the city, Ottawa’s French roots are very much on display. Not to be mistaken for its Parisian counterpart, Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica is an impressive offering for any all denominations. The Chateau Laurier hotel is another example of French architecture and worthy of a visit even if you’re staying elsewhere. ottawa canadaNot all of Ottawa’s landmarks feature a French influence. Parliament Hill – the seat of the country’s government – features a neo-Gothic feel that would sit comfortably alongside some of London’s famed landmarks. The expansive building is hard to miss, and serves as a photo backdrop for tourists throughout the year. Visitors to Ottawa will find no shortage of museums and cultural institutes to visit. Among the most popular are the Canadian Museum of Nature, the Canada Science and Technology Museum, and the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum. Other popular attractions include the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the National Gallery of Canada, the Canadian War Museum, and the Currency Museum. Meanwhile, Confederation Square is home to the Canadian Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Visitors looking for something a little more rowdy should make their way to the Canada Tire Center arena when the Ottawa Senators are playing ice hockey. Alternatively, hit up Elgin Street for an evening of dining and bar-hopping. One of Ottawa’s most impressive landmarks is the Rideau Canal. Bestowed the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007, this is the oldest canal in all of North America. For an enjoyable afternoon, take a stroll along its banks, taking in some of the city’s best scenery in the process. ottawa canadaByWard Market is another popular destination with tourists and locals alike. Browse the stalls and you might find a bargain. You might also find something you didn’t know you were looking for. Families visiting Ottawa may want to make the 22-mile journey to Limoges, Ontario, home of Calypso Park, an exciting water park. Visitors planning an extended trip to Ottawa may wish to look into day trips and other excursions in the region. A number of operators offer trips to Montreal (2 hours away) and Toronto (4 hours away). It’s also possible to book a three-day tour to Niagara Falls, a destination that needs no introduction. The majority of tourists make their way to Ottawa in the summer, when temperatures are warmest. Visitors looking to see Ottawa in all its glory should visit in spring (March-May) or fall (September-November) when the city’s foliage is either blooming or turning. Winter tourism is only recommended for those capable of dealing with snow, ice and plummeting temperatures.
