Situated on the south bank of the Ottawa River, Canada’s capital city is a romantic destination like no other. Bursting with hidden culinary gems, cultural treasures and outdoor allures, romance is in full bloom in Ottawa. Treat your loved one to the royal treatment at the Fairmont Château Laurier — an opulent castle fit for a king or queen. For the perfect Valentine’s Day feast, head to the historic ByWard Market. Not only will you find over 100 restaurants here, but it’s a hotspot for shopping, art and entertainment. Top your trip off with a moonlit skate on the famous Rideau Canal Skateway — the world’s largest naturally frozen skating rink. During Valentine’s Day weekend the canal is buzzing with the Winterlude celebration and you can check out some pretty fantastic ice carvings. Also be sure to stop by the Corktown footbridge and add you “love lock” to the hundreds of others wrapped around the rails.
