Winnipeg Travel Guide

As the grand and energetic capital of Manitoba, Winnipeg’s dynamic city life is a combination of fabulous entertainment and renowned landmarks. The Arts and historical architecture abound in this widely diverse Canadian city, Winnipeg is home to the famous Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and the world’s longest skating rink that runs the Red and Assiniboine Rivers in the winter season. Capturing the essence of romance, or the complete vacation destination, visitors appreciate the abundant activities and social settings along multiple picturesque waterways. As a visitor to Winnipeg, be sure not to miss the highly rated Manitoba museum (showcasing historical interests, galleries, the Nonsuch, and a planetarium), the acclaimed Manitoba Theatre Centre and its line up of famous actors, or take a stroll along the walkways and shops lining The Forks (the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers). Winnipeg’s collaborative event coordinators put on year round festivals such as; the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival (in July, is recognized as the second largest Fringe Festival in North America), the Winnipeg International Writers Festival (fall, September / October) is otherwise known as THIN AIR, the Folklorama (August), the Winnipeg Music Festival (February – March), the Jazz Winnipeg Festival (June), Le Festival du Voyageur (February), the Winnipeg Folk Festival (summer, July), and the Red River Exhibition (late June).
Planning an escape to Winnipeg? The province of Manitoba’s largest city entwines a multi-lingual (French & English) and multi-cultural experience which welcome visitors with open arms.
