Why should I visit Ottawa?
Ottawa is known for being both welcoming and walkable. Explore the distinctive local neighbourhoods, including the historic ByWard Market: by day this area boasts a bustling farmers’ market and chic shops, by night it hums with activity at the restaurants, pubs, and nightclubs.
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 and e 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.
Frontier’s Personal Experience
If you are visiting Ottawa and especially if you are there in May for the Tulip Festival, head to Landsdowne Park for an evening out. Lots of bars and restaurants with a great atmosphere. Also where the main Tulip Festival events are held.Julie Thompson, Frontier Canada
