Local Attractions

As capital cities go, there are plenty of things to do in Ottawa, arguably the most visitor-friendly capital in the world. Small enough that everything worth seeing is within a brisk walk or an inexpensive cab ride, the city is also large enough to have something to offer nearly every taste whether it be cultural, culinary, athletic or historic.
Traveling for business? Sheraton Ottawa Hotel is in the heart of the business district near the city's major institutions, perfect for Ottawa government travel.
