Ottawa Neighbourhoods

Charming yet sophisticated, quaint but upscale, Canada’s capital proudly offers something for everyone.  From country estates to swank urban living, this sprawling city encompasses neighbourhoods as culturally rich and diverse as its citizens.  Here, great shopping, dining, and nightlife are a given, no matter if you lean toward comfy and casual, elegant and chic, or somewhere in between.  Boasting a bustling sports scene, arts presence, and renowned farmers’ bazaar courtesy of the ByWard Market, you’re certain to fall in love with Ottawa’s many local treasures!

One block south of Parliament Hill lies Sparks Street, an open-air mall featuring traffic-free pathways flanked by trendy cafés, boutiques, and bars … a perfect date site for your Mr. or Ms. Right! Ottawa is also home to The Bank Street Promenade, another fashionable outdoor shopping district spanning 15 historic city blocks.  With over 500 retailers, restaurants, and more, these Ottawa attractions showcase some of the best shopping and people watching in Canada!

Travel further south down Bank Street, and you’ll encounter such cultural gems as Bank Street Village, The Glebe, Little Italy, and Chinatown neighbourhoods so eclectic, vibrant, and distinct you’ll almost forget you’re still in Ottawa!   

So, welcome! Bienvenue! Whether you’re a tourist or native, in the closet or out, you’re sure to find your niche here! As Canada’s fourth-largest municipality, Ottawa's got everything your rainbow heart desires! Take a day -- or two -- and stroll through the villages of Beechwood, Somerset, Wellington, and Westboro!
