For Americans who want to get to know their neighbors to the north, Canada's capital of Ottawa is a top destination. Not only Ontario's second largest city but also consistently ranked as one of the cleanest cities in the world, Ottawa boasts a compact and easily walkable downtown core, making it the perfect place to visit for a quick weekend trip. Take a guided tour of Canada's Parliament on weekends and get a first-hand look at the building's stunning architecture and the country's rich history. Art aficionados can marvel away at the National Gallery of Canada – it's beautiful from the outside, and even more amazing from the inside. In the evening, go for a stroll down the Rideau Canal and enjoy its serene, natural beauty. As Ottawa is home to the NHL's Senators and Canadians really love their hockey, you should definitely check out a game, or don some skates yourself on the Rideau Canal, which becomes the world's largest skating rink every winter. At the end of your Canadian getaway, visit the iconic BeaverTails shop, where you can enjoy a tasty fried dough pastry. Gotta love a sweet tooth! So... where to next in Canada?
