Ottawa Guide – Part 2

Hi Everyone, welcome back to Part 2 of my Ottawa guide. If you missed Part 1 you can catch it here. Let’s jump right into the second half of my travel list for Canada’s Capital City of Ottawa:
Governor Generals House – The home you tour is the actual Home of the Governor General and his family. Depending when you visit, some of the grand children maybe playing around the house. Rideau Hall is part of the grounds for the General Governors Home. Lovely for walk and completely free.

Fairmont Château Laurier – Over looking the Rideau Canal and a short walk to Parliament the Fairmont is a stunning building. We didn’t stay here but certainly wished we could afford it! An iconic spot for Ottawa.

Ottawa River & Ottawa Locks – No matter where I go, I find myself by water. Yes the world is 70% water, 30% land, but there is something so relaxing about being near it. We walked along the trail and the views at the end were well worth it.

Downtown Streets – With shops, restaurants, and tiny one off places it was nice to explore this area for breakfast. We also quite loved ByWard Market.

Centennial Flame – In Celebration for Canada’s 100th year as a Confederation this flame has “burned”. We are celebrating 150 years on July 1st!

There were a lot of people around, this photo is thanks to Google!
Notre-Dame Basilica – Visting Notre-Dame has become a tradition wherever I travel to and luckily the girls were okay with this trend. Tours aren’t offered inside so we walked by it.

What we didn’t see this time but will have to go back to tour:
Haunted Walk – One of the top haunted walks this tour takes you inside a haunted jail turned hostel. Remember this freaking me out on my Grade 8 graduation trip.

Canadian Museum of NatureCanadian War Museum – One of a kind museums with lots to see. If you’re into history these should be on your list, especially the War Museum.

We will be back Ottawa, but until then it’s time to explore more of this world. In the process of research more places, maybe mountains this time. Suggestions are always welcome.
Thanks for reading.
Talk to you tomorrow,
