With over 740,000 residents, Winnipeg is one of Canada's 10 largest cities. Despite its size, this capital city maintains a down-to-earth, small town feel. In fact, don’t be surprised if friendly locals chat with you in the streets, openly offering directions to help get to and from attractions and activities.
Winnipeg also offers a great deal of family attractions, as well as plenty of historical sites and monuments for the history buffs in your group.
But no matter what you're looking to do on your visit, Winnipeg is sure to deliver. There are spas, parks, festivals, plenty of places to dine and lots of hot nightspots to head to after dark.
So pick up your down-filled parka, lace up your boots and take a trip to one of Alberta's hidden gems. (You may want to skip the parka in the summer though.)
