Family New Years Eve

by canadamom

We will be in Winnipeg with a 10 and 14 year old on New Years Eve. Any recommendations?

RE: Family New Years Eve

by Redlats

Do you have access to a car? You could drive around and look at Christmas lights. Later in the evening, taxis are not available on New Years without hours of waiting.

I'm having troubles thinking of anything interesting for that age children. New Years parties seem mostly for adults. When we had kids that age, we either partied at home and watched that silly ball drop in Times Square, NYC on TV, or just went to bed early.

If the weather cooperates (it has been warm for most of this winter so far), there are parks you can wander around in earlier in the day. If I think of anything, I will add it later. Sometimes the newspaper has ideas for days like New Years.

In your other question about restaurants on Christmas day, I know that most restaurants in Winnipeg are closed Christmas day. I assume the same may be true of Montreal.

Travel Tips for Winnipeg

Winnipeg Tip

by Taysgrandma

Went with family friends on a 2 week trip to northern Sask. on fishing trip. Stopped every night at a campground. Went horseback riding often. Stayed in Saskatoon for a few days visiting friends who lived there. We went north of Prince Albert, and what a sight!!! It is beautiful country up there. Loved it. And the fishing,,,well, it was great!

Largest Oak structure in America.

by Sherahis

This simple museum is housed in the oldest building in Winnipeg and the largest oak log structure in North America, with the log brought up by the Red River from North Dakota. It was built as a convent for the order of Grey Nuns in 1846. The exhibits trace the history of the building - which was the first convent and hospital in Western Canada - as well as the Metis, a group of settlers from French-speaking Quebec who settled along the Red River. It is an amazing place for history.

Manitoba has GREAT beaches! ...

by Willem_oa

Manitoba has GREAT beaches! About an hour north of Winnipeg, you will find several beautiful, sandy beaches you can hang out or do some swimming at. You could also rent a cottage for a week or so to relax at.

Al Dente at the Old Spaghetti Factory

by aphrodyte about The Old Spaghetti Factory

It is my understanding that this is one of the more popular restaurants in Winnipeg for family or group dining. I guess this is why we chose this place to meet up with some fellow internet gamers from the locale. There is lots of seating inside and out. You can also eat in the streetcar that's parked in the patio outside of the restaurant.

The meals are "heaping" platefuls of whatever it is you order. What is also interesting to note is that you can get your choice of six different sauces: tomato, rich meat sauce, spicy meat sauce, mushroom, herbed clam, and browned butter with mizithra cheese. You can also add small, meatballs or order specialty pastas like stuffed manicotti and lasagne. Chicken and veal are breaded parmagiana-style with mozzarella and red sauce. We had some fried mushrooms and mozzarella sticks for appetizers. My brother and sister had the soup and some spaghetti thing with chicken and veal. I had the salad and seafood fettuccine alfredo which had some shrimp, scallops and mushrooms with spinach. Very creamy! My daughter had the chicken fingers.

I was the only one that imbibed and disappointingly it didn't have any kick to it. (or maybe I am such a lush!)
