Nightview of Ottawa

Descriptions of Ottawa read like an appealing personal ad: young, vibrant, clean, bilingual, likes kids, long walks on the river.

The attractive capital continues to impress in person. The postcard-perfect Parliament regally anchors the downtown core at the confluence of three gushing rivers. An inspiring jumble of pulsing districts, each with their own flavor, lies beyond the sleek government offices. In the distance, the rolling Gatineau hills tenderly hug the cloudless valley.

The city’s main attraction is the vast assortment of state-of-the-art museums. From the smooth undulating walls of the ubermodern Museum of Civilization (just across the river in Gatineau), to the haunting gothic arches of the Museum of Nature, each attraction is an inspired architectural gesture with an intriguing exhibition space.

Whether it’s the stunning museums or the authentic eats, the rainbow of seasons or the outdoor retreats – you should definitely make a date with Ottawa. [source: lonelyplanet]
