Airport Car Rental
The capital of Canada is not as famous as Toronto or Montreal, but can be a very fun place to visit - if you know where to look. Not only the location of the Canadian government, it boasts quality museums and a busy cultural scene. Located on the border between Ontario and Quebec, it is also near a number of fun day trip destinations. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around Ottawa:
- Parliament Hill. Home of the Parliament of Canada and other government and legislative buildings, the Parliament Hill is rightfully the most famous part of Ottawa. Spectacularly located on the Ottawa river, the area is known for its Gothic revival architecture and landmarks. Tours of the Parliament are available in both English and French.
- Canadian Museum of Nature. One of the best things about Ottawa is its many high-quality museums, and there’s no better place to start exploring them than the Canadian Museum of Nature. More than 160 years old, the museum has nearly 15 million exhibits on display as a part of the permanent collection, and also hosts many rotating exhibitions dedicated to all things wild.
- Gatineau Park. Located in the neighboring Province of Quebec, but only a 20 minute drive north of Ottawa, Gatineau Park is one of the nicest green areas in the immediate vicinity of the capital. Characterized by its hills, woodlands, and lakes, as well as a network of hiking trails and wildlife like white-tailed deer and turkey vultures, it has all the necessary ingredients for a relaxing day outdoors. The park is said to be especially scenic during the autumn months.

- Toronto (440 km / 273 mi). The most populous city of Canada, Toronto is a hub of business, culture, and innovation. Travelers love its many museums like the Art Gallery of Toronto, the Royal Ontario Museum dedicated to the province of Toronto and Ottawa, and the Hockey Hall of Fame. Other landmarks include the CN Tower and the Toronto City Hall.
- New York City (708 km / 440 mi). The largest city of the neighboring United States, Big Apple is a destination like no other. There are more world-famous landmarks than it’s possible to mention, but visiting the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and Times Square should be on every traveler’s agenda. To go from Canada to the USA, you’ll need to cross the international border, so ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it. Also, make sure you don’t need a visa to visit the USA.
- Montreal (196 km / 122 mi). The largest city of the neighboring Quebec Province and also the largest French-speaking city in the Americas, Montreal is a classy and sophisticated destination. Full of museums, well-preserved architecture, and performance venues, it has enough attractions to keep you entertained for days.
- Detroit (794 km / 493 mi). The largest city of the US state of Michigan has been through ups and downs, but during the last decade has started to reinvent itself. There are many things for a traveler to enjoy here, from historic city areas to museums dedicated to Detroit’s great industrial and musical past. As with New York, ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit you crossing the border with the USA.
- Halifax (1,444 km / 897 mi). Something of an unknown quantity to international travelers, the capital of Nova Scotia can be a great travel destination if you give it a chance. Landmarks include the Halifax Citadel, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and the city’s beautiful waterfront.
- Quebec City (456 km / 283 mi). The capital of Quebec Province, Quebec City is one of the most picturesque cities in Canada. The Citadel, the Palace of Justine, and Chateau Frontenac are some examples of its iconic architecture. If you're interested in Franco-Canadian culture, this is the right place to visit - in Quebec City, it remains even stronger than in Montreal.
