Touristy wise check out / stroll around the parliament buildings (find the stray cats on the grounds - somebody still feeds them, I think), take a tour of the royal canadian mint. I definitely recommend going to Gatineau park (5 minutes from downtown) and try to get up to champlain lookout for a nice view of a chunk of the Ottawa valley.
Avoid those "amphibus" tour buses that go into the river and pretend to be boats. One of them sunk a couple of years ago. People died....
If you are in town Saturday night it should be pretty wild with the senators being in the stanley cup finals - people are super excited about it and all bars will be packed - even the dives...
p.s. you'll get much better results re-posting this in general
