With the understanding that the guests are here to visit, or work, in Ottawa and the surrounding area, and not to visit me, I will interact with guest as much as is required. I will be available to share my knowledge of the city and the area however, if making myself scarce is what the guests want I will be happy to oblige. Some people enjoy interaction; others want less. I will explain how things work and will make myself available for questions whenever necessary.
Must visits in downtown Ottawa include: The Parliament Buildings ,the National Art Gallery, the National Arts Center, The Byward Market, Rideau Locks,The Museum of Nature and Major Hills Park.
After visiting the National Capital sights enjoy a change of pace. Navan enjoys a substantial amount of green-space. Historically a rural farming community, the village enjoys an enviable community spirit. The Navan Fair ( Hosted in August) is a must see. One friend, visiting from the UK, admitted he had never seen so many tractors in his life!
During the fair you can dance under the Pope Domes and enjoy the Navan parade* Possibly the only parade in North America with more people participating than watching?
2mins -1.5 Km Navan Hockey arena (Finalist in the Kraft Hockey contest).
