Ottawa trip suggestions

Hi,

We will be in Ottawa for 2 nights stay in June, arrive at 7p.m on the 1st night, leave at 12:30 p.m by train on the 3rd day. So we will have 1 1/2 day + 1 evening in Ottawa. With such a short time in Ottawa, what are the must-see and must-do we can fit in? We will travel by public transport or by foot. Please give us the best advices and suggestions?

Thank you very much.

As noted in your Toronto post, do some research by looking at other on-going threads and posts in this Ottawa forum.

Give us an idea of what you are interested in and like to do. Ottawa is the nation's capital - lots of national musems and galleries, outdoor markets, scenic walks, etc.

If you would like to visit museums you can get a combo ticket for Museum of History and Museum of War.

The outdoor light and sound show at the Parliament might be already in operation when you visit.

I would start downtown with Parliament, then a stroll through Byward Market, stopping for lunch at one of the many great places in market. Then I would move on to the National Art Gallery followed by a walk along the canal. Lots of great dinner restaurants near your hotel, El Camino on Elgin is great, and right down the street from your hotel (they don't take reservations and the lines are long but it's worth it).

Since your hotel is on Elgin, I would spend your half day strolling along there and Bank Street, maybe stopping by the Nature Museum if you have time.

Have a great trip!
