    3 Days in Ottawa, A Family Guide to the City

    Is a visit to Canada’s capital city on your bucket list? If not, it should be! Our 3-day family adventure in Ottawa was certainly one for the books, and our only complaint is that we couldn’t stay longer! There are some trips that you can plan spontaneously. You can fly by the seat of your pants and still manage to see all there is to see, not so much in Ottawa. Instead, I highly recommend you have an idea of where you want to go and a decent schedule of what to see and do. Ottawa has so much to offer that if you visit without a plan, you may miss out on a lot!  With the help of Ottawa Tourism, I’ve mapped out the perfect 3-day Ottawa itinerary that will ensure you leave Canada’s capital city feeling you’ve truly experienced it!

    Made in Canada: Tense Watches Review
