OTTAWA - Sunday, the fifth day of our trip, was one of the busiest days as we were trying to squeeze in as many activities as possible. You would be really surprised how much Ottawa has to offer!

From the bustling Chinatown and charming Little Italy to the lively ByWard Market with its boutiques, galleries, museums, hair & aesthetics salons, caf├ęs, specialty food shops, restaurants, and pubs. The ByWard Market, founded by Lt-Col. John By in 1826, is one of Canada's oldest and largest public markets. This unique district can't be missed!

Another thing on our list was visiting Winterlude (January 31 - February 17, 2014), an exciting winter festival that offers an array of family-friendly activities.

We couldn't leave Ottawa without skating at the Rideau Canal Skateway (the largest naturally frozen ice rink in the world) and visiting the Crystal Garden at Confederation Park with its captivating ice sculptures made by both amateur and professional ice carvers. This unique fusion of art, ice, and light is best admired at night.

USEFUL TIP: Tomorrow is the last day of Winterlude, don't miss it!
