Ottawa travel tips

Let us help you with the best tips about Ottawa

How to get around Ottawa

Ottawa makes travel easy, especially with the abundant public transportation options and walking paths. Ottawa has two city bus systems. The first is the OC Transpo, which operates on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River. The second is the Société de Transport de l’Outaouais, which operates on the Quebec side. A day pass with OC Transpo is $10.25 CAD per rider and gives you unlimited trips. That same day pass is also valid as a Family DayPass on the weekends.

Deciding when to go

Typical of Canada, Ottawa has changing seasons, and if you want to see the city in full bloom, March – May is the ideal time to book your hotel and flight. Some of the most beloved events kick off at this time too, including the Canadian Tulip Festival. If bargains are what determine your travel, go in the winter, but just bring along some heavy winter gear and get ready to go for a skate on the Rideau Canal.

Free stuff to explore in Ottawa

Ottawa has enough free attractions to keep you busy for the entire trip, or you can purchase a package from Ottawa Tourism for discounts on popular attractions.

Where to stay in Ottawa

Best places to stay in Ottawa

Ottawa is an extensive historical centre on its own, and the capital of Canada. It is home to a large number of immigrants, which helps feed the diversity and culture of the area. The metropolitan area of Ottawa has a population of just over 1 million and is the fourth largest metropolis in Canada. It is easiest to navigate your way through the city by having a good understanding of the different neighbourhoods.

ByWard Market

ByWard Market is the historical, unique neighbourhood where you find eclectic shops, boutiques, and gourmet restaurants sitting along historic sites. Stay at the Andaz Ottawa Byward Market, which has elegant styling, decorative architecture, and puts you in between Dalhousie Street and York Street.


What would a metropolitan city be without a Chinatown in the middle of it? Ottawa’s Chinatown is vibrant and a rich combination of residential and commercial. The quaint rows of shops and eateries are nestled together neatly, making exploration easy. Chinatown does not have many hotels, but on the outskirts, you have McKellar Park Suites, which offers furnished apartments.

Downtown Rideau

One block from Parliament Hill, you stroll into the arts, fashion, and theatre district. The cultural activity combined with easy access to the National Arts Centre and the Ottawa Little Theatre make the area a place where you could spend an entire weekend. In the downtown area, stay at the Novotel Ottawa Hotel or the Lord Elgin Hotel – Ottawa.


Glebe is a relaxed, historic neighbourhood with shops, restaurants, and pubs running along Bank Street. To keep with the theme of historical sites, stay at Rideau Inn, an Edwardian home situated in the quaint Golden Triangle area.

Little Italy

On Preston Street, you find Little Italy. The neighbourhood has tree-lined streets, al fresco dining, and award-winning Italian cuisine. Most of Little Italy you can explore on foot, and if you need public transportation, you have buses running through the neighbourhood and into the other areas of Ottawa. In Little Italy, stay at a modern hotel with an indoor pool at the Courtyard by Marriott Ottawa East.

Cheap hotels in Ottawa

Ottawa is a popular tourist spot, but that does not mean it cannot cater to the budget-conscious traveler. Here you have cheaper hotel options mixed in between the luxurious 5-star accommodations. While they are budget-friendly, these hotels are also safe, clean, and offer easy access to local attractions. Affordable options include the Holiday Inn Ottawa East on Joseph Cyr Street and the ByWard Blue Inn on Clarence Street.

Learn about attractions and sights in Ottawa

No matter the season, Ottawa offers attractions and events throughout the year. Even though most festivals are in the spring and summer months, you will still find plenty to see and enjoy in winter. If you are short on time, put these items on your must-see list:

  • ByWard Market is one of those areas where you just stroll, people watch, and window shop. Buy fresh produce, then jog up the canal and venture towards the lake. Possibilities are endless in this district, and if your hotel is located here, you will have much within walking distance.
  • Drink up some craft beers at local breweries and pubs throughout Ottawa. Bicycle Craft Brewery, CRAFT Beer Market, and the Tooth and Nail Brewing Company are great places to start. For a Canadian pub experience, head over to the Clocktower Brew Pub or Brother’s Beer Bistro. If you are a scotch enthusiast, you cannot miss a night at Ottawa’s most convenient, well-known and popular scotch bar downtown, the Highlander Pub.
  • While you are here, you need to taste the eclectic cuisine of Ottawa. Play Food & Wine specializes in small plates and serves all wines by the glass. For the freshest oysters, stop in at The Whalesbone on Elgin Street, Kent Street, or Bank Street. Allium offers modern Canadian cuisine but fills fast due to its romantic setting complete with low lights and dreamy music. To get a table, you must make a reservation ahead.
