Ottawa is the capital city of Canada. The population of the city is 820,000. Ottawa is a city that has seen massive growth in every sector in the last 15 years. It is a clean, beautiful city and attracts tourists all year around. Home to many museums, the Peace Tower and Parliament Hill, the finest restaurants and plenty of trendy bars, clubs and eateries in the Byward Market.

Also, the home to two casinos, the best gentlemen's clubs where you can put your hands all over the merchandise, an NHL franchise in the Ottawa Senators and a significant population of French-Canadians and Somalians. Low violent crime rate and easy to get around.

I rate Ottawa as the second coolest city in the country after Calgary. This is a city on the rise; being just a sleepy government town isn't what it is any longer.

Oh yeah, nasty winters with snow and ice but people love that kind of weather and they need it for the Rideau Canal (longest skating rink in the world) and Winterlude.

So Ottawa is fine. It just isn't Las Vegas...although you could pretend!
I lived in Ottawa for 31 years. Fine city. It beats Las Vegas in several regards.

A city that lacks a hockey team worth mentioning, unlike Toronto.
It's too bad we don't live in Toronto instead of Ottawa. Then we would have a real hockey team.
