Winnipeg

Manitoba

Winnipeg - a city of warm hospitality, unique attractions, colourful festivals, dynamic entertainment and music scene, one-of-a-kind shopping and tantalizing cuisine. Winnipeg is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with a population of 762,000 people.

Splurge at Winnipeg’s largest suburban shopping malls, Polo Park and St. Vital, or big box stores along Kenaston Boulevard, including one of Canada’s largest IKEA stores and several discount outlets offering some of the best deals on the Prairies. For independent shops and trendy boutiques, head to unique Winnipeg neighbourhoods, such as Osborne Village, Academy Road and the Exchange District to pick up one-of-a-kind treasures

A culinary cornucopia awaits you in Winnipeg with more than 1,100 restaurants, diners and delis to explore. Sample the globally inspired cuisine found in almost every Winnipeg neighbourhood from Ethiopian to Mexican to German and everything in between. Look for regional ingredients, such as bison, wild rice and pickerel on restaurant menus. 

Experience the great outdoors and the wonders of nature right in the city. Take in river promenades and sculptures at The Forks, or get up close with bison during a Canadian Tourism Commission signature experience at Fort Whyte Alive, and more than 300 species of birds and wildlife at Oak Hammock Marsh. Winnipeg’s crown jewel, Assiniboine Park is home to Assiniboine Park Zoo, a lush conservatory, trails, picnic areas, a duck pond for wildlife viewing, an outdoor performance stage, two restaurants and an art gallery.
