photographs by David Barbour

Here is the ideal full-colour guide to Canada's capital, packed full of insider information.
Ottawa offers visitors many special attractions and events: this guide will help you find the best of them. Prepared and written by residents of the city, it gives the inside story on where to go and what to do--with full-colour photos throughout.
Ottawa offers something for everyone--from awe-inspiring Parliament Hill to the bustle of the Byward Market, the trendiness of The Glebe and the wonderful array of museums and galleries. Knowledgeable authors describe exhibits you won't want to miss. If you're travelling with kids, you'll appreciate the many comments and suggestions about the best attractions for young visitors.
Ottawa: A Colourguide offers a dozen maps, including locator maps for recommended downtown hotels and restaurants, maps of key areas, and suggested walking tours. It describes short excursions to the Gatineau and other nearby areas, and a listings section details recommended dining, lodging, attractions and services.
