Best Of Ottawa: The 18 Most Trendy Places Right Now

#TrendyAF

You may be thinking: "Ottawa has things that are trendy?! WTF". Yes, Ottawa is home to quite a few spots that are super trendy. We do have a bad rep, but to be honest, Ottawa is really picking up steam when it comes to trends. Don't forget that this summer we were one of the few cities to have watermelon ice cream and it's also noteworthy that we are the first city to get a Mad Radish.

Although you may feel like Ottawa is super boring, it really isn't. All it takes is some exploration and research on Narcity (shameless plug) to have the most trendy time.
