Ottawa, Ontario: Canada’s Artsy, Accessible Capital City
Canada’s bright and friendly capital city lies along the southern banks of the Ottawa River. The best sights are conveniently located in close proximity of one another, in the sparkling center of town. The Canadian Parliament conducts the business of governing the country in the imposing Gothic Revival buildings on Parliament Hill. Outside, statues honoring Queen Victoria, Father of Confederation George-Étienne Cartier, and about a dozen other important figures from Canadian history dot the grounds.
After paying your respects to the country’s most influential leaders, you can visit the nearby National Gallery of Canada. Before stepping inside, make sure to snap a photo beneath Louise Bourgeois’s massive Maman statue—a giant spider with bronze legs that seem to rise as high as the Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica next door. For lunch or dinner, head to the ByWard Market, a huge public marketplace packed with hundreds of produce stands, restaurants, and food stalls selling cuisine from around the world.
