A major center of technology nicknamed "Silicon Valley North," Ottawa offers visitors a modern flavor with its range of trendy hotels, shops, and restaurants.
When in Ottawa, make a side trip to see Omega Park in Montebello, approximately Montebello away. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Parliament Hill and Buildings, take in the spiritual surroundings of Notre Dame Basilica, hike along Gatineau Park, and see the interesting displays at National Gallery of Canada.

For ratings, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Ottawa online holiday planner.

It's home to a diverse population and perched on the River Thames, but that's where the similarities end between the city of London in Canada, and it's much more famous British counterpart.
Change things up with these side-trips from London: Grand Bend (Pinery Provincial Park & Grand Bend Beach), Rock Glen Conservation Area (in Arkona) and Guelph (Royal City Church, Guelph, Donkey Sanctuary of Canada, &more). Pack the 30th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Storybook Gardens. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Stones 'N Bones Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Old St Thomas Church, walk around Canatara Park, and delve into the lush surroundings at Medway Valley Heritage Forest.

To find more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the London day trip planning tool.

Traveling by flight from Ottawa to London takes 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. The time zone difference when traveling from Ottawa to London is minus 1 hour. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
