    Winnipeg Things to Do

    The Manitoba Legislature was completed in 1920. The building style is neo-classical, incorporating Greek, Roman and Egyptian motifs and elements. (Yes Egyptian! See if you can find the pair of sphinxes that guard the north entrance.) The building was designed by Frank Worthington Simon of Liverpool, England. The building is in the shape of a...

    This is a great park in the midst of the city - a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city (though it can be pretty busy too in the summer!). The park is over 378 acres (153 hectares). In addition to numerous walking & biking trails, lawns, picnic areas, and soccer fields, the park is home to a zoo, an English garden, a sculpture...

  • Exchange District - downtown

    Winnipeg Things to Do

    A sight seeing tour to Winnipeg's Exchange District with its turn of the last century architecture is the first thing I admired about the city. It was established in the early 20th century, it is the original center of commerce and culture. I like the colorful brick old buildings lined with antique shops, stores boutiques etc. They preserved the...

  • St. Boniface

    Winnipeg Things to Do

    Visiting the tomb of Canada's original Rebel is a must see and do for me any time that I am in Winnipeg. This man got the short end of the stick and was in fact misrepresented as a criminal and unjustly hung for his actions. I have an undying tendency to root for the underdog and I TRY to stand up for what is "just" and "right"...and how this man...

    The Fort Whyte Nature Centre, inside the city limits has boardwalks over marshes, a 70 acre bison enclosure, thousands of geese during migration times, and a building with birds during the winter, an aquarium with local fish, and many exhibits.

  • Royal Canadian Mint

    Winnipeg Things to Do

    The tour of the RCM takes you through the coin-making process. It is at this location where all of Canada's circulation coins are made (the branch in Ottawa makes the commemorative and collectable coins only). The RCM also makes coins for a number of other countries around the world. The tour was very informative and I recommend a visit to the RCM...

    Winnipeg Things to Do

    A short walk from Winnipeg Railway Station. The 310 million dollar building at The Forks in Winnipeg, has now been delayed partly due to cost overruns and its opening scheduled for 2012, has now been put back to 2014 There has been a lot of controversy about the building, initially from archeologists who have found invaluable remains of items...

  • Sports in Winnipeg

    Winnipeg Things to Do

    I had thought about jumping out of a plane, taking adventure of the vast treeless spaces here in Manitoba. But I figured that this was somewhat more sane. (I shouldn't disparage sky-diving - this same place also offers sky-diving) Affordable - you brave enough?

  • Shopping in Winnipeg

    Winnipeg Things to Do

    Winnipeg is a good place to shop. For every US$, you get over $1.50 Cdn. now. Yet, for many products, the price is the same in Cdn $ as it is in American dollars in North Dakota (ie, CD's on sale in Winnipeg cost $14 Cdn. The same CD's in Minneapolis cost $14 US - over 50% higher cost). Winnipeg has five large malls - all are fairly new. All have...

  • Winnipeg's Casinos

    Winnipeg Things to Do

    There are 2 casinos in Winnipeg - McPhillips Street Station Casino and Club Regent Casino. I only had time to go to Club Regent and it turned out to be a good pick. It has a jungle-like theme with palm trees inside and a giant aquarium. The aquarium is quite interesting. It is actually a tunnel that you can walk through but the water surrounds you...

  • West Hawk Lake

    We dropped by to this lake on our way back to Winnipeg from camping at Rushing river. We wanted to have a glimpse of the deepest lake in Manitoba It's not far from the Manitoba tourist center located in the Manitoba-Ontario border. During summer the lake is crowded, I saw a lot of people having a tan on its white sandy beach. This lake was said...

  • Spirit Sands

    After the international peace garden we trailed the Manitoba "desert" of Spirit Sands located in Spruce woods provincial park. This is the only place qualified to be called a desert in Canada actually. It's not like the desert in the middle east but millions of years ago it could possibly look like one. They said there's a lot more open sand before...

  • International Peace Garden

    We had a weekend long drive to see this colorful botanical garden than lies between US-Canada border specifically North Dakota-Manitoba devoted for world peace.It was created in 1932.It took 4 hours to get there from Winnipeg. We are not able to cross the border yet because as permanent resident card holders, we need a US visa to get there which we...

  • Falcon Lake

    It can be your side trip when going to Kenora, Ontario like what we did. We had our breakfast here when we went to Rushing river for a weekend camping. There are campsites near the lake and the clear water was inviting to take a plunge. The lake shapes like a cove with grainy sands. I also read that it was the site of an alleged UFO siting.

  • Narcisse Snake Dens

    Largest congregation of wintering snakes in the world! Tens of thousands of red-sided garter snakes from up to 20 km away come to these dens to spend the winter months. Visiting the dens requires good planning because the snakes emerge, mate in a frenzy, and disperse all within a few short weeks in late April to early May (weather dependent). The...

  • birdwatching in Manitoba

    Birdwatching is wonderful in Manitoba. We were there in summer and there were birds everywhere! So many species that I hadn't seen before. Is it because the air is so clean there? Or because the province in general is very "natural"? You would quite often see aerial battles of several small birds attacking a raptor.

  • Tall-Grass Prairie Preserve

    Several organisations teamed up to protect a portion of Manitoba's remnant tallgrass prairie (of which less than 1% remains across North America). There are two self-guided interpretive trails you can stroll down. Spring and fall are good times to visit for migratory birds. Spring is good for breeding birds. Late spring and summer for the flowers....

    I recently visited the Whiteshell area for the first time. Wow!! That will definitely not be the last. It is so incredibly beautiful, untouched. So many gorgeous lakes, rocky shorelines, forests...a great place to just get away from it all.

  • Cathedral Ruins

    The Cathédrale Saint-Boniface is a must-see in Winnipeg. The old cathedral burned down in 1968. Instead of bull-dozing the remains, the facade and side walls were saved, and the new cathedral was built behind the ruins. You can walk in the ruins, surrounded by towering walls, and look at the sky above. It has a European feel to it. For a picture,...
