Ottawa Valley Communities along the Trans Canada Highway
Why Visit Otttawa-Gatineau?
This is the nation's capital, home to not just the Parliament Buildings, Rideau Hall, and 24 Sussex, but most of the national museums. Once the center of the once-booming lumber trade, it is now considered Silicon Valley North, with a specialization in telecommunications. The Ottawa River which extends over 100o km to the north, and the smaller Rideau and the Gatineau rivers connect to nearby recreation areas. The city is surrounded with and bisected by pretty Greenbelt parklands, and the Rideau Canal. Importantly, the region sits astride two provinces, letting locals pick & choose the laws regarding drinking hours & age, civic holidays, and shopping. As should visitors!
