Parliament Hill and the National Gallery of Canada are part of the thriving heart of this city. Well respected by locals and tourists alike, these renowned attractions should be non-negotiable fixtures of your itinerary.

You won't have to worry about feeling bored in this lively city. Rideau Canal and the Canadian War Museum will keep you entertained. The University of Ottawa and the Canadian Museum of History are just a few more fantastic sights that'll capture your imagination.

If these walls could talk! Just imagine the power grabs and heated arguments that have occurred at Supreme Court of Canada. Catch a tour and get a better look at this seat of governmental power. There's a wonderful range of things to do in this destination. If you're interested in discovering the area's history through its architecture, stick Royal Canadian Mint on your list. Be sure to stop and read any plaques or signs which reveal the fascinating stories behind it. Still have some time on your hands?
