Winnipeg is a bustling Canadian prairie city that sits at the confluence of two rivers in Manitoba province. Also known as the ‘Gateway to the West’, this provincial capital dates back thousands of years. Historic neighborhoods and landmarks worthy of exploration beckon visitors as do the specialty coffee shops with their aromatic fragrance. Here, museums and art galleries rub shoulders with renowned performing arts venues. Cycling is a great way to explore the city that inspired author AA Milne to come up with the name for his famous character Winnie-the-Pooh! The city’s parks offer a range of recreational activities besides conservatories, sculpture gardens, and even a zoo. Manicured golf courses vie for attention as do glittering casinos and a busy racetrack. With a diverse ethnic population calling this city home, the culinary scene here is a gastronome’s dream come true. Meanwhile, Winnipeg’s array of craft beer breweries invite you to saunter around and stay back for some sampling!
