Ottawa is Canada's capital city and with UNESCO World Heritage Site status for the Rideau Canal, Ottawa really is a city of waterways. Add the majestic Ottawa River, and the fast-flowing Gatineau to the placid Rideau although no waterway has defined Ottawa like the Rideau Canal. It is, in fact, the reason Ottawa exists.
Visit the wonderful Museum of Canadian Civilisation, a fantastic modern building with an excellent display of First Nation's Art and gives a good insight into the early pioneering days.
On top of this, the Parliament buildings, the Governor's House are well worth a visit as are the myriad restaurants. The Ottawa River has some excellent white water rafting and canoeing - just head upriver to Beachburg for a great adrenalin boost.
