Canada's capital city, Ottawa sits on the south bank of the Ottawa River at the confluence of the Rideau River and canal. The primary attraction for most visitors is Parliament Hill, and the government provides most of the employment in the city with many of the impressive gothic downtown buildings being occupied by many government offices and administrations.
The city of Hull in Quebec sits on the other shore of the Ottawa River and just like everything in Ottawa is within easy reach.
Unique as a North American capital, the city is bilingual. English is the first language of a majority of the population, but French is the first language of a significant number. Staff in most stores and restaurants speaks both well and, in general, bilingualism is common.
Ottawa is home to many of the world's cultures as thousands of immigrants from around the world now call Ottawa home. The city has become one of the fastest growing cities in North America owing to the booming high-tech business sector. All seasons have events to suit every taste, so be on the lookout for deals that include hotels and tours.
