There are plenty of times when you forget how fun your own city is. Living in a 'government city', you can sometimes feel like fun just doesn't visit here. But you're wrong. Well, most of the time. 

Ottawa is not the city that fun forgets, no matter how much that rolls off the tongue. When it comes to things to see, eat, and do, there are so many things to keep yourself occupied. You can call this city boring all you want, but after reading this article, there is no way you can say you've done all the fun things in Ottawa. 

So here is what you must see, must eat, and must do in Ottawa:
