Montréal, Québec City, Trois-Rivières, Sherbrooke are all fine French Canadian cities to visit. All are located in the province of Québec and are easily accessible to each other by car. Starting from Montréal, each of the other three is about a 3-hour drive maximum. Montréal is the most cosmopolitain of the four. Québec City, the capital of Québec, has a distinctive French charm, especially the old part of town, that makes one feel in France. Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières are smaller cities that also have a strong French flavour.

Ottawa, the capital of Canada, is in Ontario and has bilingual status, but is not considered to be a French Canadian city. It is very near Hull, which is in Québec, and is about 3 hours by car from Montréal.

If you're a young person looking to party (nightlife, etc) Montreal is probably the place to go. Lots of nightlife, many young university students to hang out with, loads of fun.

If you're more interested in culture, then Quebec City is a nice place to visit. Its its 400th anniversary this year so they have a lot of activities planned, but it isn't known for its nightlife like Montreal, its a smaller city.

Like others have said, Ottawa isn't really a French city, many people speak French in Ottawa (because you have to be bilingual to work for the government), but English is really the most prevalent language. Montreal also has a large English population, although it is predominantly French. Its more multi-cultural than Quebec City.
