Winnipeg Details

Winnipeg is the capital of Manitoba and is the 7th largest city in Canada. Winnipeggers, as the city’s residents are known, number about 650,000. Today, as in the past, Winnipeg is the economic and cultural center of the region. The city is located at the “The Forks,” the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. The Forks is now a national historic site, but is also home to a number of river walkways, shops, and restaurants, as well as the world’s longest skating rink. A Winnipeg hotel on near The Forks would make for a fun and lively location, though there are other, calmer choices for your hotel in Winnipeg, and a range of budget or cheap hotels to suit every pocket.The city is known for its urban forest that is populated with American Elm trees, as well as for its two largest parks, Assiniboine and Kildonan. There are a number of attractions that will appeal to younger visitors, including the Manitoba Children’s Museum, the Manitoba Theater for Young People, and the Winnipeg International Children’s Festival. The Festival is held at The Forks each June, and features more than 30 acts over four days.
