Ottawa

Trip Planner Canada  /  Ontario  /  Ottawa

Silicon Valley North

A major center of technology nicknamed "Silicon Valley North," Ottawa offers visitors a modern flavor with its range of trendy hotels, shops, and restaurants. Appealing to immigrants from around the world, the city is officially bilingual, the majority of its residents fluent in both English and French. A vacation in Ottawa lets you discover impressive architecture, with the majestic Parliament Building one of the world's finest examples of Gothic Revival. At the heart of most Ottawa tours, the city's Rideau Canal earned a place on the World Heritage List as North America's oldest continuously operated canal system. Along this scenic waterway, you can find bike paths and jogging trails, as well as the longest skating rink in the world. Ottawa is in Ontario. Our Canada trip planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
