Ottawa is the capital of Canada , and the fourth largest city in the country. Its population is over 1.2 million with a diverse population. It is the home of government organizations such as the Government of Canada, Parliament, the Senate, and the Supreme Court of Canada. The name “Ottawa” is derived from the Algonquin word adawe, meaning “to trade”.
Ottawa is a great place to go if you want a quick, cheap one day vacation. From Montreal, it is about a 2 hour drive and Toronto about 4 hours.
I like to drive there and have dinner at Red Lobster. My family and I used to go every other month to celebrate birthdays and holidays before it closed 15 years ago.
