Winnipeg is a place which has "family vacation" written all over it. It's home to unique museums and one-of-a-kind experiences.
At the heart of the city, the Forks National Historic Site is a focal point - a gathering place where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet and where you'll find activities galore for all the family. Nearby, the skyline is dominated by Canada's newest eye-catching attraction in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. It's a unique museum with interactive and awe-inspiring exhibits established to foster dialogue and promote change for a better world.
Polar bears can be seen up close at the Assiniboine Park Zoo. Those who don't have the opportunity to visit Churchill first-hand can watch these majestic mammals dive, swim and frolic at the Journey to Churchill exhibit. The zoo is also home to muskox, wolves, moose, seals and over 200 other species.
At FortWhyte Alive, 640 acres of prairie beauty has bison roaming in their natural habitat and a visit to the Royal Canadian Mint will have you witnessing coins being produced for over 70 different countries. With so many things to see and do in Winnipeg, a visit to the local tourist information centre is advised. Private and provincial campgrounds are not far from the city, giving easy access to its many attractions when you include Winnipeg on your RV road trip.
