The National Art Gallery, the Museum of Nature and the Mint can also be quite interesting. It's almost easier to just ditch a car and then walk around downtown all day.
Yeah it's looking like we'll only have the time for one day in Ottawa but I think that's all we need. Parliament, one Museum, plus some wandering will fill a day nicely.
In Montreal, just eat. Honestly. Poutine, smoked meat and crepes. And obviously tour around Old Montreal. Quebec City is even better for the old parts. Really cool city. Again, the food is great.
Aye aye. Can't wait to sample Montreal's eats.
