Many visit the city for its unparalleled lineup of museums, galleries and festivals and Ottawa is a natural for sports, recreation, and outdoor pursuits, with its beautiful natural setting of waterways, parks and pathways. In this stress-free urban setting you can find fine dining, relaxing spas and a variety of shopping experiences before heading out for a night of entertainment and cultural events. It is the perfect location to visit for business and pleasure.

In the fall, particularly, under the vibrant colours of autumn, there are some memorable activities to include in travel plans such as “Fall Rhapsody” tours and activities and menus featuring local harvest products at Ottawa restaurants under the Savour Ottawa initiative.
