    ByWard Market

    12 reviews

    ByWard Market is the tourist trap hangout spot in Ottawa. This place has tens of restaurants, shopping, and outdoor things to buy, from maple syrup to clothing and everything in between. If the rest of Ottawa is fairly dead, this area is somewhat alive. Check it out.

    National Gallery of Canada

    4.5
    12 reviews

    This is probably Canada's best art gallery. The collection is strong on Canadian artists and has some major Modern and contemporary works. Otherwise, it is pretty modest in its holdings. Unfortunately, it does not compare with the best museums in the United States which are older, bigger and have had more generous patrons.
