Luc Crawford’s Ottawa Travel Guide
If you are planning to come visit for a week-end, I highly recommend the ByWard Market. There are a lot of restaurants that deserve to be discovered. I really like Fresco Bistro Italiano on Elgin Street. Here you will enjoy a great meal in an award-winning restaurant designed by our firm!
I really like the Ottawa Bluesfest. This 2 week event takes place at the beginning of July every year. You will enjoy an outdoor music festival that welcomes artists from various locations and various music styles. This is a great opportunity to enjoy some of the greatest artist of today and discover new groups you’ll love. This year’s list included Lady Gaga, Journey, Lady Antebellum and many others.
Some of my favourites include Holt Renfrew and Rideau Center, a well-located downtown market. There are dozens of exclusive little boutiques where you will find unique pieces and home-made items by the local artisan.
