What is the culture like in Manitoba?

Manitoban culture is a term that encompasses the artistic elements that are representative of Manitoba. Manitoba’s culture has been influenced by both traditional (Aboriginal and Métis) and modern Canadian artistic values, as well as some aspects of the cultures of immigrant populations and its American neighbours.

What is the climate like in Manitoba?

Manitoba has a moderately dry climate with sharp seasonal temperature changes. Winter temperatures of about −40 °F (−40 °C) may occasionally occur in any part of the province, and summer days of 100 °F (38 °C) are not unusual in the southern regions.

What are some tourist attractions in Manitoba?

There are many optional tourist destinations in the province that attracts many visitors. One example is the Forks.  The Forks, located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers near Winnipeg’s downtown core, is the place to be in summer and equally fun in winter. Restored historical buildings now house a lovely market area with unique shops, restaurants, and casual food stalls. Some restaurants feature outdoor patios overlooking the river and walkways that run along the river. In winter, there is an outdoor skating rink that is particularly popular with families.

Another popular tourist destination is the polar bears of Churchill. Churchill, popularly known as the “Polar Bear Capital of the World,” lies on the harsh, rocky coast of Hudson Bay. In autumn, polar bears wander onto the ice-floes in the bay to hunt seals, and the town comes to life with visitors from around the world who come here to see these amazing animals. Tours in tundra buggies – giant large-wheeled vehicles with caged windows – allow visitors close up encounters with the bears.

Lastly, tourist can have a try with Manitoba’s provincial parks. Whiteshell provincial park for example is about a 1.5-hour drive east of Winnipeg. The landscape is typical of the Canadian Shield, with hills, lakes, valleys, forests, and rivers. Moose, deer, and black bear inhabit the park. Cottages dot the shorelines of many of the lakes, but much of the wilderness area is undisturbed. The resorts of Falcon Lake and West Hawk Lake further east offer fine beaches, sailing, and waterskiing. The Whiteshell is a popular summer destination for Winnipeggers looking to get away from the heat of city and spend some time by the lake.
