What is living in Ottawa like?
Fun and easy. It is a diverse and safe city with little traffic! The city is riddled with bike paths and within 20 minutes of downtown you can ski, bike, hike, swim or canoe in Gatineau Park. There is a vibrant music scene with a ridiculous number of music festivals during the summer. Ottawa will not disappoint foodies. With only a short drive to Quebec, Toronto and the American border, Ottawa’s central location allows for fun-filled weekend getaways. Ottawa gives you the opportunities found in large metropolitan regions without the constant hustle and bustle.
