Why Ottawa? As the capital city of Canada, Ottawa is a vibrant, safe community ...
offering visitors tradition, historic sites, monuments and beautiful parks. It is considerably smaller than other major cities in Canada such as Vancouver and Toronto, and for this reason it is often an attractive choice as it is a more manageable size and often cheaper. It still has a lively feel and should not be dismissed for its nightlife, which still beats into the early hours of the morning. Cold winters can not be escaped in Canada, so why not embrace them, and in Ottawa you can do just that with skiing, skating and even snowshoeing options to keep you entertained on a chilly day!
