Top places to visit in Manitoba
Although Manitoba has a central location and it is considered to be one of the Prairie Provinces, its somewhat flat landscape is more diverse than one may think and includes lakes, forests and a coastline along Hudson Bay. As a result, tourists really have plenty to see and this is often reason enough for an exciting road trip. If you are concerned about your accommodation in Manitoba, there are several ways of setting your mind at ease. Firstly, you can plan your trip, route and complete itinerary for your drive and book your hotel or other accommodation in Manitoba at each overnight rest stop. Alternatively, you can rent an RV, motorhome or similar vehicle and map out all the campgrounds along the way where you can stop, park and make yourself at home.
One stop that you most definitely have to make when visiting Manitoba is the province's capital, Winnipeg. With plenty of restaurants, pubs, hotels, sights and attractions to choose from, you will probably need more than just one day to really enjoy everything the city has to offer.
If you want a day of family fun, make your way to Tinkertown. There are plenty of rides for children and parents can accompany their little ones on many of them. Other family fun includes exploring the local Maze in Corn, Putt-Putt and indoor fun at Kid City.
Some other interesting attractions in Winnipeg include the Royal Canadian Mint and the Manitoba Legislative Building. A trip on the Prairie Dog Central Railway is another great family activity and will keep everyone entertained for at least 2 to 3 hours as you relive the events from years ago and travel along the old transit routes.
Brandon is the second-largest city in the province and also has plenty to see and do. The museums here are great for the whole family and really give you an insight into the local and national history. The Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum and the RCA Museum are just two of the favourites among locals and tourists. If you are a horse fan and would like to watch some fine equestrian displays of talent and skill, then check the listings at the Keystone Centre. The centre hosts several events throughout the year so make sure that your holiday coincides with your favourite one.
Other great places to visit include the Eskimo Museum in Churchill and the Grand Beach Provincial Park in Grand Marais if you would like to enjoy some soft sand and time in the sun. The Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre at Stony Mountain is an award-winning facility that has a number of fun and interactive exhibits for all to enjoy.
Other activities and things to do in Manitoba
There are several tour companies that operate throughout the province and each one offers a unique experience, when staying in Manitoba. There are river tours, boating tours and even tours to see polar bears up close in a specialised vehicle. When you are in the hands of a trained, professional tour guide, you can be sure that you will get to see and do things you ordinarily could not.
As for the nightlife, you will not be disappointed! Since the locals are so friendly, you can rightfully assume that they also enjoy a good party and night out. The pubs, bars and clubs are sure to keep you happy and out of your hotel room until well into the early hours. There's never a dull moment in Manitoba!
The province is also filled with various shopping malls and boutique stores to satisfy every bit of your retail therapy urge. That said, the malls are probably best left for a rainy day since there's so much to see and do outdoors that spending a beautiful day inside would be a shame.
The locals really enjoy their beer and there's not much that doesn't go with an ice cold pint! You will find all your usual international take out restaurants as well as your fair share of local chains and fine dining if you feel like getting fancy for the night.
