From city life to outdoor activities and a cultural atmosphere, Ottawa has something to offer to everyone. For urban living lovers, the Byward Market, the Glebe, Elgin Street and Westboro are lively spots that offer vibrant city life options. For outdoor activities, about a 20-minute drive away from the city you will find numerous hiking/running/cycling trails in Gatineau Park. Don’t forget the world's largest skating rink in the historic Rideau Canal Skateway with a length of 7.8 kilometers. Culturally, the Nation’s Capital is the home of many galleries, theatres and museums. It is no surprise to us that Ottawa has been ranked as one of the best places to live in Canada.
