Top 5 Reasons why Ottawa is the Best City in Canada

I hope you all had a Happy Canada Day yesterday!!

I may be biased, but I’m fairly certain that I live in Canada’s most beautiful city, which also happens to be our capital. I moved here just under 4 year ago for school, and initially thought I would be getting the hell out the second I was done school. Winter here is COLD and I don’t do well with cold. But then summer happened, and I fell hard for this city. My reasons why Ottawa is the best city:

But that’s okay, because bigger is better.
