Attractions near the Westin Ottawa
Experience Canada’s cultural best
Boasting a great city centre location, the Westin is within a stroll of most of the city’s art and cultural attractions. The National Arts Centre is just 200 metres away, while the esteemed National Gallery of Canada is also within walking distance. The Museum of Civilization and the Canadian Museum of Nature are both within a three-kilometre radius, as are the Canadian War Museum and the Currency Museum.
With so many options on your doorstep, the most difficult decision you’ll have to make is which one to visit first. For a uniquely Canadian experience, don't miss the Snow exhibition at the Canadian Museum of History for a fresh perspective on how snow has shaped Canada’s identity.
Skate on an ice Canal
Built in 1832, the Rideau Canal connects Ottawa to Lake Ontario and is the oldest continually operating canal in North America. Stretching 202 kilometres and featuring a series of 45 locks, this feat of engineering has earned its place as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Hire a canoe or board a cruise to explore this historic waterway, or simply stroll through the parks and gardens lining its banks. In winter, join the locals in what has become an annual tradition – a 7.8 kilometre portion of the canal freezes to become the Rideau Canal Skateway, the largest naturally frozen ice rink in the world. Rent some skates or bring your own, and warm up between runs with a hot chocolate from one of the on-ice shops.
