Ottawa Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 50 photos

Ottawa is a nice little town half an hour south of Lawrence, Kansas and about half an hour southwest from Kansas City on I-35. It's home to Ottawa University, which is affiliated with the American Baptist church. The university has around 400-500 students.
Towns like this are perfect rest-stops to get out of your car and experience life at a much more manageable pace. Wander around downtown and take in the Midwest architecture. You'll be sure to get some looks because you're not a local, but just smile and enjoy the role you are playing in their daily lives.
