it is a beautifull city with lots of history. and interesting sights. it is also very clean and has a lot to offer to visitors
Parliament Hill is a must see during the day and night. There are activities like a show on the parliament hill at night during summer.
So, it is worth staying overnight here. On winter season, experience ice skating on the Rideau canal. Best time to visit and appreciate Ottawa more is during summer.
Ottawa is nice to visit, but as I'm from Toronto, as it is a smaller city to me so would recommend a weekend getaway to Ottawa to cover the sights.
My overall experience was great. The people were very welcoming and friendly, which is nice to see in a big city.
The taxis are reasonable and the bus transportation is amazing! Beware of the cold, and dress up warm and in layers! The Rideau Centre is great for shopping and you can find a nice hotel or restaurant almost anywhere you look!
Ottawa is a very beautiful city in which to walk around or bicycle. There are so many attractions and cafes that you have a hard time deciding what you want to do first.
Ottawa is one of my favorite Canadian cities to visit in the summer.
The main sightseeing places are about politics. Though not very interesting, you should see the place.
