It depends on what are you looking for.
Culture, concerts (what kind of music), party hard, sport events, ....?

btw: I was in Ottawa and Toronto last year, awesome cities!

There is a pretty good Tourist-Info-Point in the first district (Downtown) locatet at Albertinaplatz / Maysedergasse close to the Vienna State Opera

If you want to know how to travel from one point to the other you can use route planner for our puplic transport services
http://www.wienerlinien.at/

Culture:
There is a list of all museum in Vienna
http://www.wien.gv.at/ma53/museen/museen.htm

A must see is the Museumsquartier, lovely place, so many museum and a couple of cool restaurants/bars to hang out
http://www.mqw.at/fset_en.html

I would recommend you to walk around downtown, around St. Stephans Cathedral, der Ring, the Rathaus (city hall), the Hofburg.
You will get a great impression of the old Vienna.

If you're a tough customer, you can visit the Narrenturm (Federal Pathologic-anatomical Museum)
http://www.narrenturm.at/
--------

Shopping:
We have 2 main places for shopping, the Mariahilferstrasse (located at the Tube Stations U6 "Westbahnhof" and you can walk all the way down to the Tube Station "Volkstheater") and the famous Kärtnerstrasse (huge street from the St. Stephans Cathedral to the Vienna State Opera - Karlsplatz, mostly expensive stuff like designer shops, jewelry and so on).

There is a huge shopping mall, but it's little bit out of town. There is a public transport to the shopping mall, but it takes quite a while to get there. With the car it's not that bad.

Bars/places to hang out:
There are 2 main places:
- Das Bermudadreieck (Bermuda Triangle), located downtown (around the tube station Schwedenplatz), a lot of bars, mostly a young crowd and a lot of drunk people. It's not my cup of coffee but if you want to go crazy, have fun and don't mind a lot of drunken kids, it's the place to go).

- Stadtbahnbögen (located on the Gürtel, directly in the arcs of the tube U6 from the station Nussdorferstrasse to Thaliastrasse).
There a lot of pretty nice clubs and a nice location. The clubs are in the arcs of the tube U6, because the U6 is going overground.
Here are links to a couple of clubs in the Stadtbahnbögen

My personal favorites:
Dino's bar (awesome cocktail bar)
http://www.dinos.at

First Floor (also a great bar)

The Lion Rampant (traditionally Scottish pub)

Flex (underground club)
