City of Ottawa
Located 1.5 hours from the McIntosh Country Inn is the city of Ottawa. A drive along the Highway 31 will bring you right into the heart of the Capital.
Ottawa offers year-round excitement. Take a tour of Parliament Hill to see where our nation’s political decisions are made, or join one the hundreds of thousands of spectators that attend Bluesfest, the annual outdoor event that features some of the the best musicians and bands in the world.
The ByWard Market can be found in Ottawa’s Lower Town, just east of the business and government district. With fresh produce, flowers, vendors, restaurants and pubs, the Byward Market is a great place to enjoy a day or night out in Ottawa.
Visiting during the wintertime? In February, Ottawa hosts the popular Winterlude festival – which includes ice sculpting competitions and displays, skating along the world’s largest canal, concerts, winter activities, and the traditional ‘beavertail’ pastry famous to the region.
