The relationship Ottawa shares with Canada’s history of course begins at Parliament Hill.
Even for residents who walk by them every, these splendid Victorian Gothic sandstone structures offer inspiration, as they look over the Ottawa River. But anyone whose stepped foot in the nation’s capital will tell you the love affair starts with Rideau Canal. The 200 km stretch of water is one of Canada’s most picturesque sights. Initially, this waterway was meant for military strategy, coming to fruition in the War of 1812.
There are cruises and boat tours during the summer. And during the winter, the recreation gets kicked up several notches for festivals, skating, and the famous, delicious Beavertails.
Ottawa is lodged in the Southeastern side of Ontario on the south bank of the Ottawa River. It is bordered by Gatineau, Montreal in the north, Embrun and Limoges in the east, Kemptville and Chesterville in the south, and Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills in the west.
