Hintonburg has been Ottawa’s up-and-coming neighbourhood for so long, it’s probably more appropriate to simply refer to it as the new ‘it’ area. It’s become a top destination for those of us interested in boutiques, bistros, vegan cafes and coffee shops. At night, many people are attracted to the trendy supper clubs, cocktail bars and brewpubs of the area.
$25 million in area upgrades
Encouraging the revitalization of this trendy neighbourhood the city of Ottawa invested $25-million into upgrades that included double-wide sidewalks, improved access for cyclists, clean roads and additional trees. The result is an area that is highly walkable and both very pedestrian and bicycle-friendly.
A shopping destination
Hintonburg is a great area to walk the streets and poke into all the interesting, independent shops. It seems every few months a unique new store pops up in the area. Here are just a few of many great spots worthy of a visit.
