Also, check out these cool facts and photos of Ottawa that our hosts shared with us!
· Ottawa is the capital of Canada. It is the second largest city in Ontario and the fourth largest city in the country. Ottawa is located in the Ottawa Valley in eastern Ontario. It lies on the banks of the Ottawa River, which divides the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The mouths of the Rideau River and the Rideau Canal are both located here and have played a major part in the history of Ottawa. The Rideau Canal is the world's largest skating rink and is used by Ottawa residents and visitors alike.
· Walking around the ByWard Market is an enjoyable, relaxing activity for everyone. The ByWard neighbourhood has a fascinating history as one of the earliest settled areas in the city and also as a rather infamous neighbourhood! The current ByWard Market is a beautiful and classy place to live, shop, and dine, and now has a reputation as a première spot to see in Ottawa.
· Only steps away from Parliament Hill and the Rideau Centre shopping mall, you will find market stalls with fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as delicious European cheeses, meats and other specialities in the shops.
· Also you can immerse yourself in nature at Gatineau Park, the Capital's Conservation Park! Discover the Park's stunning natural features, unique plants and wildlife, and beautiful heritage sites and enjoy the tranquility of being in nature. Gatineau Park is a woodland and lake land district in the hills of the Canadian Shield alongside the River Gatineau, large areas of which are still primeval forest. Tour the magnificent Gatineau Hills, renowned for its breathtaking landscapes and fall colors. This extensive conservation park is just 15 minutes from Parliament Hill and the heart of the Capital.
Don't know about anyone else, but we are ready for a Road Trip!! :) :)
