"You'll find inspiring and engaging activities throughout Manitoba to enjoy on your next family vacation or romantic getaway with your special someone."
As Winnipeg is the province’s capital city, visitors always stop by its Forks Market. Part of "the Forks" development, this buzzing fresh and specialty foods emporium has the feel of an outdoor market, but is actually indoors. Open year-round, it offers an array of ethnic delicacies and crafts, plus four full service restaurants.
Visitors in Winnipeg will also enjoy a trip to the Royal Canadian Mint to see how coins are manufactured. If looking to get out of the city, one can head to Churchill in northern Manitoba, also known as "the polar bear capital of the world," where the bears make their dens near the town. Manitoba has many recreational opportunities, including canoeing, fishing, cycling, and cross-country skiing. One of the most popular out-of-town destinations is Grand Beach, located less than an hour from Winnipeg. Famous for its beautiful white sand beaches, it was once listed in top 10 beaches in the world by Playboy Magazine.
The International Peace Garden lies on the border between Manitoba and North Dakota and is a large parkspace dedicated to peace. The entire park is accessible to both Canadians and Americans without going through Customs, as a symbol of peaceful international relations.
