The capital city of Canada’s Manitoba province, Winnipeg is a must-see for sports enthusiasts, with several professional sports franchises calling the city home. Established in 1738, Winnipeg was the first Canadian ‘Pan American Games’ host.
Formerly a fur trading post, Winnipeg abounds in things to do; at its heart lies the historic Forks area, where the Assiniboine and Red rivers meet and tourists are treated to charming warehouses turned shops and restaurants amid tons of greenery. Winnipeg is also known for its festivals and concerts; it’s also close to the Exchange District, home to much well-preserved architecture from the 20th century and a plethora of art galleries.
