Yes, it does get cold in Winnipeg, so cold that all you want to do is be inside. On the up side though, those cold winters have made Winnipeg a dream vacation spot for art lovers.
There are several museums including The Manitoba Museum and the Winnipeg Art Gallery which is world-renown for its superb collection of Inuit Art. The Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the oldest ballet company in Canada, puts on spectacular shows. For theatre lovers, make a stop at the Manitoba Theatre Center and see what’s up on stage.
Take the kids to the Royal Canadian Mint and show them where money’s made. Don’t miss a visit to Assinboine Park, a vast beautiful park with lots of space to run around, scenic walking paths, fabulous English Gardens and even a zoo. Winnipeg vacations wouldn’t be complete without a stop at The Forks Market. Located right in the center of the city where the Red and Assinboine rivers meet, the Forks Market has many restaurants and craft stores inside. Outside you will find lots of places to sit and a wonderful pathway to stroll along beside the river.
Money burning a hole in your pocket?
Head over to the Club Regent Casino, a sprawling casino with hundreds of slot machines and table games. The whole casino is decorated in a fun Caribbean motif, so even if you don’t win enough money to take a Caribbean holiday, you can pretend you’re already there!
However, do not take a gamble with your vacation investment. Ensure yourself peace of mind by buying Travel Insurance.
Located just across the river from Detroit, Michigan, Windsor is Canada’s southernmost city and quite often the envy of most sun- starved Canadians! The climate makes Windsor a great place to vacation if you want to spend time outdoors.
Windsor has over 154 parks making it ideal for outdoor activities. There is a park for everybody, no matter what your particular interest: parks with beautiful flower gardens, parks with splendid scenic walking paths and even parks displaying sculpture gardens.
Art and History
While vacationing in Windsor you may want to visit the Art Gallery of Windsor or take a tour of Willistead Manor, one of Windsor’s Historic Homes. You may also want to visit the Windsor Community Museum and see what Windsor’s talented local artists are creating these days.
A toss of the dice
Windsor vacations probably wouldn’t be complete without at least a small peek into the sprawling casino of Windsor. The casino has over 3,300 slot machines and 80 games tables. There are also some great restaurants located in the casino including The Terrace Café, a 24 hour all-purpose sit down café, and the lovely and posh, Riverside Grille which is located right next to the lobby of the Casino Hotel and is completely removed from the action of the casino. This restaurant offers a lovely view of the river and the Detroit skyline. If you are visiting Windsor from Detroit or from elsewhere in the States, keep in mind that if you stay for 48 hours you are permitted to bring home $200 worth of goods without paying duty.
