OTTAWA

Ottawa is brimming with culture, history and attractions, a growing gay village in the heart of the city, and to top it off, is throwing a massive year-long party in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday. Let one of Ottawa’s welcoming accommodations direct you towards some capital fun. One of the newest on the scene, the Andaz Hotel Ottawa ByWard Market is a sleek hotel with stunning city views. ARC The.Hotel is another chic downtown option. Try the Gilmore Inn or the Rideau Inn for a cozy, home-away-from-home experience.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS
