Ottawa, Ontario is the capital city of Canada and lies on the eastern edge of the province. The weather patterns of Ottawa can be variable and extreme running in to the different seasons which, however, allows for a variety of recreational activities and requiring a wide range of wardrobes.  The summers are relatively hot and short aggravated by high humidity. This makes for interesting life here as people have become capable at adapting.

Ottawa has numerous activities for both residents and tourists and makes for a fine destination any time of the year. The world’s longest skating rink on the Rideau Canal winds its way through Ottawa for nearly five miles creating a form of transportation to the Downtown core. Casual outdoor skating rinks provide winter activities, as well as tobogganing, skiing and curling.  Winterlude is celebrated annually in February with the majority of activities in the Rideau Canal region.  Cycling, running and hiking are enjoyed on a large network of paved pathways winding through the city which also serve as transportation for tourism and recreation throughout the year.  Ice fishing takes place during the coldest winter months. Being the Capital City, Ottawa celebrates Canada Day on July 1st which is the birthday of the nation.  The Tulip Festival is enjoyed in May at which time the Netherland’s royal family gifts hundreds of thousands of tulips for the event.  Sunset at parliament hill is spectacular to see.
