elcome to Ottawa! From the historic buildings to the specialty shops, Ottawa is as charming as they come! Ottawa overlooks the spot where the Fox River meets the Illinois, and we have a pleasant river walk that brings you right to the river's edge

Or relax on a shady bench in Washington Park, a pleasant town square featuring historic monuments, towering trees, and a beautiful fountain dedicated to two famous visitors to town!

Ottawa offers a pleasing mix of restaurants featuring everything from ethnic menus to seafood and steaks, from family dining to gourmet cuisine. Whether you grab a quick bite for lunch or linger over a romantic table-for-two, we've got something to suit every taste!
