Nice place to visit. Great architecture and a place for your quintessential photo op in Canada's capital. Would interest history, politics and architecture buffs. There's a nice lookout from the back of the buildings as well. Sometimes they light up the building too, not sure of the times when that happens maybe around July 1 - Canada Day.Recommended for:
- Parliament Hill
From outside the views are fantastic. At night time it is lit with lights, perfect for a leisurely walk. During the day you may arrange tours of the various blocks that offer insight into Canadian government and history. I highly recommend the tours for families.Recommended for:

If you're into government (as an academic pursuit) or really cool architecture, this is a great place to enjoy both in Ottowa. The Canadian system of government has always fascinated me (as an American), so it was actually really neat to wander around this square and soak up the current political climate, as well as the awesome history of this great country (many non-Canadians don't know that Ottawa is actually the capital of the country as well as the province).
If you're not so much into politics, the buildings themselves are pretty neat to look at too. They're much more interesting (in my opinion) than the capital buildings in Washington D.C.Recommended for:

Home to Canada's parliament. Tours every hour, and if you go on the weekend you can see the actual chambers. Tours are also free, and if you're lucky, you'll get to see some free speech in action.

Modelled after the British parliament, the Canadian version sits ironically on the Ontario-Quebec border, representing the joining of french and english Canada. A beautiful building and the HQ of one hell of a country :)
