Downtown Ottawa is a convenient rental car location

Capital grandeur in Ottawa

Anchored by the Parliament buildings, the capital of Canada offers a dynamic compilation of inspiring museums, bilingual neighborhoods, spectacular parks and public spaces, and delightful winter festivities.

With four distinct seasons, Ottawa is fluttering with exciting things to do all year round. Regal yet gracious, explore the city’s notable landmarks and local hangouts then forge ahead to the rest of Ontario and neighboring Quebec.

Ottawa favorites

Ottawa is a city where locals often ice skate to work or school in the winter, and is steeped in heritage and a wide range of attractions.

Rideau Canal

Enjoy a leisurely afternoon next to the iconic Rideau Canal. Winding along for five miles, the waterway transforms into an outdoor skating rink during the colder months.

Parliament Hill

Take a tour and wander the grounds of the Parliament buildings, the home of Canada’s government that is surrounded with breathtaking views of the city and the Ottawa River.

National Gallery of Canada

Set aside a few hours and browse this contemporary gallery. Enclosed in a glass tower, exhibitions include the famous Canadian landscape painters known as the Group of Seven, aboriginal artwork, and European impressionism.

Hit the road

Treat yourself to a slice of the good life — book a car on Turo to leave the busy city streets of the downtown district behind and experience the nearby gems just a few hours’ drive away from the capital. Canadian winters bring inclement weather and icy roads, so if you’re visiting in the colder months, be sure to search for an all-wheel drive vehicle with snow tires equipped.
