Parliament Buildings

Not just a hub for politicians, these green-topped buildings on Parliament Hill attract tourists from around the world.

Parliament Buildings

If you’re willing to negotiate the rigorous security checks – yes, they have metal detectors and even an x-ray machine for your bags and personal belongings – then you can climb the Peace Tower inside the Parliament Buildings to look out across the whole city. Great views (if you don’t mind the heights).

Ottawa events in September, October, November and December

November 9th, 2007 · 657 Comments


Whether you’re involved in the massive return to school (either yourself, or your family), or getting ready to party it up with the crazy frosh weeks that welcome thousands to Carleton and Ottawa U, September certainly gets off to a wild start.

The highlight of September is attending one of the many Country Fairs held all around the boarding villages on the outskirts of the city.  If you’re trying to decide which one to visit, I’d recommend the Richmond Fair, Metcalfe Fair, and Carp Fair as must-sees.  Lots of yummy food, tasty sweet treats, rides, games, competitions and of course there are the animals to see 🙂
