Hello, my friend and I will be visiting Ottawa for the tulip festival this May. We'll arrive by train operated by ViaRail from Montreal. I appreciate if someone in this forum can advise us the best and safe way for 2 girls to go from the Ottawa train station to hotels in downtown. Is downtown a safe place to walk around and explore? We also need to know the best ways to get to several parks where the tulip festival takes place. I heard about hop on hop off buses, but I don't which hotels are on their routes, or near their stop locations. Thanks in advance for all your help and recommendations.
