Ottawa is a nice city but at night I felt in some danger as there were a lot of drug addicts which is such a shame because it is a pretty city. Downtown at night we were approached by a group of junkies which made me feel very uncomfortable and unsafe. Would not recommend solo female travellers to go unless they are trained.
