Why do people say Ottawa is best seen on foot?

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.

During dusk, go to where the Rideau Canal gates are and sit on the ledge to over look the Ottawa River. It's a spectacular view with the sunset, river and city lights. It's definitely a romantic feeling to be in.
