I’m sure that you’ve heard the stories; Americans threatening to leave the U.S. if a certain someone gets elected President. Well, now that it’s actually happened, those individuals may want to narrow down their search to where exactly they want to live in their new country of Canada.
May I suggest Ottawa? Why you may ask? Here’s 7 reasons!
#1 – It’s the nation’s capital! Centre of government!! All the decisions that affect the rest of the country are made here, plus you might just run into this guy!
#2 – All the festivals. Bluesfest, Jazzfest, Poutine Fest and Tulip Festival just scratch the surface. There’s always something to do! Even when it gets cold, with Winterlude. #3 – Speaking of winter, the Rideau Canal, especially when it freezes over and you can skate on it!
#3 – Rideau Canal. Especially in the winter time. I mean, there’s not many other cities on Earth where you could skate to work if you wanted to!
#4 – Multiculturalism. The city has many ethnically diverse neighbourhoods. Chinatown, near downtown is a place for fantastic Chinese and Asian restaurants and food shops. Another wonderful neighbourhood is Little Italy, situated in Centretown and the original home of Ottawa’s established Italian community.
#5 – Nature. There are many, many parks within the city, but you don’t have to go very far to find some very beautiful areas outside of it, like Gatineau Park.
That just scratches the surface! If you have a reason that Americans should move to Ottawa, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
