Whether it is the cutting-edge museums or the authentic cuisine, the colourful seasons or the outdoor pursuits, care hire is the best option for experiencing Ottawa. Collect your rental car from Ottawa Downtown or at Ottawa airport and prepare to be awed.
Ottawa is located in the province of Ontario and it is the Canadian capital. The city was chosen as the capital by Queen Victoria as a compromise as it couldn’t be decided if Montreal or Toronto should be the capital. Ottawa has grown from a simple lumber town to the 4th largest municipality in Canada. As a relatively young city, with a large number of immigrants, you will find that Ottawa is full of energy and optimism.
While you are visiting the city there are a number of important sites worth visiting such as the Parliament Hill (which also does a Sound and Light Show), the Canadian War Museum, the Museum of Civilization, Gatineau Park, and remember all the museums are free access; though can be very crowded in the summer. The city also runs a large number of festivals throughout the year such as the Ottawa Jazz Festival, the Winterlude and the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival.
