Family Friendly Hotels in Ottawa
Ottawa has been described as one of the most beautiful capitals in the world. Less than an hour's drive from the
American border, Ottawa enjoys the attributes of a major center for the visual and performing arts, as well as
other big city attractions. Yet, it still maintains the accessibility, atmosphere and charm of a smaller
city, in addition to access to spectacular park and wilderness areas located within and around the city.
From humble beginnings, Ottawa has evolved into Canada's cultural capital. The most difficult problem visitors
have when visiting Ottawa is choosing what to do first. There are over 50 galleries and theatres in the region,
showcasing the best of Canadian and international art, theatre, music, and dance performances. The city's
museums, heritage buildings, parks, and monuments paint an exciting picture of its colorful past, while
also allowing a glimpse of its future.
If it is entertainment visitors are looking for, the city has offerings to suit every taste. The ByWard Market
and Elgin Street are well-known for their night clubs, pubs, dance clubs, and live music halls. Ottawa has
five theaters staging plays, musicals, operas and classical concerts. The Corel Center, an 18,500 seat sports
and entertainment facility, offers NHL hockey, music's biggest stars, figure skating, and many family events.
