Liverpool, England, Manaus, Brazil, and Gothenburg, Sweden are a few of the cities that were named, but as for Canada, the country’s capital was listed as one of the best destinations to visit in 2023.

Considered “graceful and understated,” CNN Travel found Ottawa to be a city that can’t be overlooked. Catering to all interests, the list names exciting attractions that just make Ottawa the best – Ottawa Jazz Festivals, the Ottawa Senators and 67’s, Parliament Hill, and, of course, the world’s largest skating rink, the Rideau Canal.

This isn’t the first time a Canadian city has been named a top choice in travel destinations. Just last month, Toronto was ranked in a list highlighting the top city destinations in the world, of 2022.

Back in November, a new report by the Global Destinations Sustainability Movement actually found that Montreal was one of the most sustainable travel destinations in the world, too.

Looks like you won’t need to travel too far to experience and explore some of the world’s best cities.
