As the capital of Canada, Ottawa is welcoming any time of year. During the winter, rent some skates and take to the Rideau Canal – the world’s largest skating rink and a Unesco-listed site, or take in the ice carving competitions at the Winterlude Festival. Springtime brings the Canadian Tulip Festival and chairs start to appear on the patios of the city’s many brewpubs. Don’t miss a visit to Parliament Hill – especially on Canada Day, when the sky is lit up with fireworks and flags. In fall, hike the Gatineau Hills as they explode into color or raft the Ottawa River. Ottawa is waiting for your next adventure, especially with a stay in one of these amazing vacation rentals – bookable on Culture Trip.
