I toured all over Ottawa on foot. Lord Elgin was walking distance to Parliament, Byward market, the Rideau Canal, Canadian Mint, and the Museums (Nature, Bytown, War, Art, and Civilization). I was also able to walk to Little Italy on Preston and Chinatown on Somerset. Some places took a half hour to walk to but I enjoy walking. I saved a ton not getting a car rental or buying gas.

Winter is a good time if you are willing to brave the cold. Weekdays between 12 and 4.

Walking is the best way to seeistof Ottawa. Some things you need a car for.

The artitectural and history behind these amazing historical buildings.

Sir John A Pub - across from hotel, great food, great atmosphere

fee free visits to museums on Thursday between 4:00-8:00pm.

The tumble of the unknown soldier.
