Nice photo spread.

For outdoor enthusiasts, there are also copious skiing places to check out in the Ottawa region, both cross-country and downhill. Beginners can rent skis at Lac Leamy.

Ottawa is also becoming a burgeoning foodie destination – many new restaurants to check out in Westboro and the Market whilst your’re in town.
