Ottawa is a city in, and the county seat of, Franklin County, Kansas, United States. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Big Brutus and Fort Scott National Cemetery. Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum and Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop & Farm Historic Site will appeal to museum buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Mine Creek Civil War Battlefield State Historic Site (in Pleasanton), Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes (in Fort Scott) and Pittsburg (Pittsburg State University & Miner's Memorial in Immigrant Park). There's much more to do: stroll around Forest Park, do a tasting at Somerset Ridge Vineyard-Winery, look for all kinds of wild species at Cedar Cove Feline Conservatory & Education Center, and take an in-depth tour of Old Depot Museum.
