Why locals love it

The Rideau canal is one of Ottawa’s most beautiful attractions. Whether you like walking or skating, summer or winter, daytime or sunset, the Rideau canal is the place to be for anyone. It’s a great way of exploring the city because by walking near the canal, you are surrounded by stunning architectural building that build up Ottawa.

Why you should visit it

The Rideau canal is a great place to visit for families, or anyone. If you walk down the canal, you will eventually get to the parliament building, which is another attraction. The canal there goes downhill and goes out into the Ottawa river. You could watch the sunset from there, which is absolutely magical. It’s also a skating rink in the winter.

Walking or biking along the canal in summer and skating in the winter is a great way to see Ottawa.
