Canada's capital city is stunning in more ways than one. It is not only beautiful but also culturally and historically rich. Each of the city's neighborhoods has its own unique atmosphere, from the historic ByWard Market to the authentic flavors of Chinatown and Little Italy and the trendy cafes and restaurants of the Elgin Street district. With an Ottawa car rental, you have the freedom to explore at your own pace and even be a little spontaneous when the mood takes you.
Driving in and around Ottawa
Flying into the city, you'll arrive at Ottawa International Airport, located nine miles from the center of Ottawa. You can pick up an Ottawa airport car rental for a little extra convenience. Ottawa hotels provide the ideal base from which to explore "Bytown," as the city was once known. This large and diverse city truly has something for everyone, as reflected in its many museums, which include the Agricultural and Food Museum, the Aviation and Space Museum, and the Canadian Museum of History, as well as the National Gallery of Canada, which has the world's biggest collection of Canadian art. If you're in the mood for outdoor fun in spring or summer, drive out of Ottawa and head west along the river for a white water rafting adventure or north to Papineau-Labelle Wildlife Reserve for hiking, fishing, and wildlife-watching, as well as winter-time activities such as skiing and dog sledding.
