Growing up in Alberta, the only thing I was ever told about Winnipeg was that it was cold and boring. It was often included in various jokes, which made me think that there must be nothing to do there. Then, in the summer of 2015, both my wife and I had the opportunity to live in Winnipeg for the summer. I had been working a sales job in Calgary and had been promoted to manager. They wanted me to start a new sales team in Winnipeg and so we had to move there for five months, from mid-April to mid-September. We rented a furnished apartment right downtown and got ready to experience as much of Winnipeg as possible. Turns out, Winnipeg is not boring at all. We loved it. Sure, the winter is very cold, but it’s quite cold all over the country. The summer, however, turned out to be incredible. There are all sorts of festivals, two beautiful rivers, a variety of ethnic restaurants, delicious ice cream shops, and quite possibly the best museum in Canada. It’s also surrounded by many lakes, including massive Lake Winnipeg, which is home to one of the largest white sand beaches in the country!
We always look forward to going back, so if you do get the chance to go, here are some things you shouldn’t miss. [Read more…] about 16 Fun Things To Do in Winnipeg in 2020
