Hey Ottawa friends! I am thinking of spending a day in the capitol this weekend because *gasp* I have never been.

Any advice on the best things to do and how to use my time efficiently would be much appreciated Smile

So many options!

Lots of great museums in town: the Science and Tech museum is newly renovated, museum of Nature, History or War, and then there's the National Art Gallery.

If you like wandering in the city, the Byward market area is great, as well as Sparks Street.

If you like nature, Gatineau park has tons of walking trails.

Have fun!

Thanks Kat! I'm leaning toward the war museum. I might try the market for dinner.

Agreed with points from Kat.

I would add if you want nice walk along the canal, start at lansdowne park (they also have a nice placed called Local with more fusion pub food), original exhibition building there too!

I really enjoy the museum of nature (small for museum, but nicely curated and great old vs modern architecture in harmony)

If you want shawarma, go to "Shawarma Palace" on Rideau right downtown likely where you are within walking distance if exploring downtown.
