Ottawa is full of great neighbourhoods, but we all have our opinions about them from different experiences. Many of us have never even visited some of these neighbourhoods, but just know them from word of mouth. So whether you grew up in Rockcliffe and went to private school or lived in Orleans and have never been to Bayshore, I'm sure this will resonate with you somehow.

I asked a bunch of different people their opinions on Ottawa's neighbourhoods, and this is the brutal truth I got. So here are 20 brutally honest one sentence descriptions of Ottawa neighbourhoods:
