The Peace Tower

If you look way up, above the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, you will see one of the most recognizable symbols of Canada, the Peace Tower. The most widely known symbol of Canada is of course the Canadian flag. Speaking of flags, the flag on top of the tower is changed daily Monday to Friday, and you can put your name on a waiting list to have one that has flown above the Peace Tower. However, you will have to be patient, the wait is about 42 years.
You can take free guided tours of the Peace Tower and the surrounding Parliament Buildings, year round, and in the Summer months, you can have a seat on the front lawn, in the morning and watch the Changing of the Guard, and at night you can meet back at the same spot and watch a stunning sound and light show!
