A major center of technology nicknamed "Silicon Valley North," Ottawa offers visitors a modern flavor with its range of trendy hotels, shops, and restaurants.
Step out of the city life by going to Rideau Canal National Historic Site and Sir John A. MacDonald Parkway. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at ByWard Market and Canadian War Museum. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Parliament Hill and Buildings, see the interesting displays at Canada Aviation and Space Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Notre Dame Basilica, and do a tasting at Domaine Perrault Vineyard.
