By Ward Mar­ket

Timeless Travels Magazine - - CANADA -

Laid out by Lieu­tenant Colonel John By in 1826 (who also built the Rideau Canal – busy man), the ByWard Mar­ket is a good cen­tral lo­ca­tion to be­gin your time in Ottawa. There are quirky shops, sou­venirs, and plenty of places to find tasty snacks – why not try a ‘BeaverTail’, a large fried pas­try cov­ered in your choice of sweet top­ping, or say good­bye to your teeth by over­dos­ing on the nu­mer­ous maple­cov­ered delights on of­fer. There are also var­i­ous stands sell­ing lo­cal pro­duce and arts and crafts goods. Plus, once you’ve fin­ished ex­plor­ing the mar­ket it­self, there are plenty of pubs, cafes, and restau­rants surrounding it to keep you en­ter­tained well into the evening.
