Skating on the Rideau Canal is probably the best thing about winter in Ottawa. I mean where else can you skate on a historic UNESCO World Heritage Site canal through the centre of a city? Stretching 7.8km the Rideau Canal is the world’s largest naturally frozen skating rink and my favourite thing about winter here in Ottawa.
I’ve lived in Ottawa my whole life and I really love my hometown. As much as I love to travel I really couldn’t live anywhere else. Ottawa is the capital of Canada with so much to offer but it still feels like a small city. Maybe you’re new to Ottawa or coming to visit, or maybe you’ve lived here for a long time like me but haven’t really explored the many great neighbourhoods of Ottawa. I hope that I can share with you how great Ottawa is so you get out exploring and if you’ve never been I hope I can convince you to come check it out! So here are a few photos of Ottawa and stay tune for more to come!
