Ottawa is around 5 hours from Toronto, maybe a bit less if you are a fast driver.

It's a beautiful city with lots to do, however, if you are only here for 5 days and are already planning to go to Niagara, it might not be possible since it will take 1/2 a day to get there and get back again.

5 days is simply not enough to see all the sites unfortunately Instead of Ottawa though, a little closer destination I would recommend is the drive to the Kingston/Gananoque area. The Thousand Islands boat cruise on the St. Lawrence River is not to be missed! I think the drive is about 3 1/2 hours from Toronto and there's lots to do in the area. If you are a chocolate lover, you can also check out the Hershey plant for example.

You may also want to try seeing Stratford, Ontario too. There is a Shakespeare festival there yearly.
