This area of Ottawa is family oriented with great little shops and restaurants. You can find a good burger or great vegetarian fare here. There is street parking and many stores here are pet friendly.

Spent the weekend here. Just wonderful. Great local shopping, restaurants, bars etc. We could walk everywhere along Wellington and just enjoyed. Great outdoor patios. And each place had its own local flavour.
