Ottawa is a major city in Canada and is known for having beautiful views. Ottawa is also known for having one of the largest central public gardens in the world. The Dominion Arboretum is quite unusual to be in the middle of a city but here you will find 10 acres of green that is surrounded by a beautiful stone wall. It is absolutely massive and has plenty to see in it, including Japanese garden, a pond, lawns, stone paths, streams and waterfalls. You can also relax in a lounge chair and enjoy the beauty of the park all around you. For more information on the garden, visit: https://friendsofthefarm.ca/plan-your-visit/attractions/. Ottawa also offers many interesting things to do, including the Rideau Canal, which winds all the way from the Ottawa River to the St. Lawrence River.
Things to see in Ottawa
Firstly, Ottawa is a capital city of Canada and home to Parliament Hill, which dominates the cityscape from miles around. But you’ll also find some of the finest museums in the country right here in Ottawa. Build it and they will come. In the past, Ottawa has been somewhat of a sleepy backwater. Not any more. Thanks to one of Canada’s biggest tourist boosters, the National Capital Commission, and its new Light Rail Transit, which boasts 100 miles of track, Ottawa has never looked as dynamic. Be sure to catch a ride on the train, or bike along the nearby canal, which connects the beautiful Ottawa River. If the weather is not your thing, Ottawa is known for the National Gallery of Canada.

Thirdly, Ottawa is one of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations. It is located in the beautiful Ontario region and surrounded by water on every side. However, if you are looking for something more tranquil, you might consider the nearby mountains. Gatineau Park is about an hour north of Ottawa and offers hiking, camping, skiing, snowmobiling and wildlife viewing. I went down to Gatineau and had an excellent day exploring the park, hiking, camping and seeing some rare black bears. I couldn’t have been happier with my visit to Gatineau Park.
In summary, Ottawa is a beautiful and active city filled with wonderful things to see and do.
