The capital of Canada, located on the banks of the Ottawa River in the east of Southern Ontario, is the city of Ottawa. The city is the fourth largest city in Canada, and as its capital, has an amazing array of things that visitors absolutely must see and do. It is frequently cited as the best community to live in the whole of Canada. Renting a car in Ottawa allows you to come and go from the Winterlude festival, the largest in Canada, held over three weekends, usually in February. There's a handful of activities to partake in, but the most notable is the Rideau Canal Skateway which has earned the title of the largest skating rink in the world.
One of the most famous cultural institutions in not just Ottawa but the whole of Canada is the National Gallery of Canada. Located close to the Parliament buildings on Sussex Drive, the National Gallery houses a number of incredible works of art, including some by world famous artist and pop culture icon Andy Warhol. Outside of the gallery, visitors can see the Louise Bourgeois sculpture, 'Maman' which is an enormous spider. Aside from an incredible permanent collection, the gallery also has a strong track record of fascinating temporary exhibitions, and the gallery's official website has more details on what's on right now.
Renting a car in Ottawa also means that the surrounding cities, which form the National Capital Region of Canada are opened up to you for exploration and to visit for a day trip. Ottawa borders the magnificent city of Quebec, which is certainly one place which should not be avoided by visitors to the country. With a strong cultural heritage from film, music, dance and literature, Quebec is the perfect place to spend the day. Highlights of a visit to Quebec include the Chambly Fort, Museum of Civilisation and the Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History.
