Ottawa is indeed very beautiful. You must visit. You'll love it. Not much happening gay-life but still great.

There is a really nice building going up there, called Metropole and i belive they just opened some new overpasses on the 417! Very nice city ! 8.5/10 !
It's changing though. Lots of highrises under construction. The city is growing I know it won't be anything like Toronto, but it's still very pretty. Clean. Beautiful and Historic.

Quebec City is probably number 1 on my Canada list, with Montreal 2nd and Toronto 3rd. Ottawa needs to get on the list, too, though.

Pretty skyline but the skyscrapers are all short and box-like.

No but I can expect a capital city to look like London or Paris or Buenos Aires......

Ottawa like Canberra (Australia) has a very small and boring skyline.

I like the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa though, but the skyscrapers are SH_IT!!!!! HAHA

Ottawa has height limits.

Like Washington, you don't need big skyscrapers to be a nice city.

Besides, Ottawa is a relatively small city, only around 1.3 million people. Less than 1 million if you don't include Gatineau, which operates relatively independently of the english speaking side of the river.

But I know you gonna like it in my city

You ain't never had a party
Till you come to a party in my city

HAHAHA oh dear!!!!! I lived in Toronto for 18 months....... I'm a bigger city kinda man so Toronto and Montreal were MY Towns..... I spent about a week in Ottawa - it's a cute little city... has some nice buildings... I found it odd that the entire city shuts down at 8pm and becomes a ghost town...... but yes it is a nice small city.

Oh, so you're a party boy! Well, party scene(Montreal) is just two hours away from Ottawa, and then you come back to calm, beautiful and clean Ottawa to relax and study/work. Great for students. I am from Karachi(9.3 million) population, so i like Ottawa better.
