Full Description

111 Places in Ottawa That You Must Not Miss reveals to Ottawans and visitors alike the city’s most interesting people, places and stories, some lurking off the beaten path and others hiding in plain sight.

Pay homage to a Soviet intelligence officer whose shocking defection reportedly ushered in the Cold War. Admire a giant piece of stone money at one place and learn how money is made at another. Follow a trail of historic sundials.

You can dine in a restaurant that’s home to an Elvis Sighting Society beside a lane named for the superstar, long-gone but never forgotten. Fly over the city in a vintage, open-cockpit biplane. Or surf on a river with views of the Parliament buildings. You can also find the spots where homegrown musician Alanis Morissette and actor Ryan Reynolds once walked. And learn why Ottawa loves tulips.

Join author Jennifer Bain and photographer Liz Beddall as they take you on a quirk-filled journey through O-Town, the modern and multicultural capital city that promises to be “Canada in one city.”
