Travelers heading out of Ottawa by plane will leave from Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, also known simply as Ottawa International Airport. This airport is located about 6 miles south of downtown Ottawa and is served by major airlines, including Delta, Air Canada, United, and US Airways. Travelers who drive to the airport can park in the long-term parking lot, which is about a 7-minute walk from the terminal. Taxis and public buses also serve the airport, so you can use these means of transportation to make it to your flight on time.
Arriving passengers land at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, which is just 3 miles southwest of the city. Transportation options from the airport include local taxis, shared shuttles, and Broward County Transit buses. You can also rent a car from Alamo, National, Enterprise, or one of the other rental car companies with offices in the airport. The Fort Lauderdale beachfront is a major draw for travelers from landlocked Ottawa, but you should also make time to visit the canals that give this city the nickname Venice of America. Other must-see attractions in Fort Lauderdale include Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, and the Museum of Discovery and Science. Because of its south Florida location, Fort Lauderdale enjoys a pleasant subtropical climate throughout the year. Many visitors prefer heading to Fort Lauderdale between November and May, because temperatures stay in the 60s and 70s then. From June through October is hotter and wetter, with summer highs reaching into the 90s. The summer and early fall is also hurricane season, so it is possible for travel plans during this time to be interrupted by a major storm.
