Just over the United States border, toward the southwestern region of Canada, Manitoba’s capital city, Winnipeg, brims with family-friendly activities and attractions. As with most cities, Winnipeg boasts ample museums and art galleries to uncover, but with the added perks of open green space and parks. For those more interested in city life, shopping and dining, Winnipeg has that, too.

The chic urban-meets-industrial scene is evident in the Exchange District of the city, showcasing 20th-century architecture and modern attractions. Check out the converted warehouses, now shops and restaurants, and enjoy the city’s unique style.

Get in some family bonding at Enigma Escapes, working together to escape a theme room. The three locations offer different themes, from the Lost Jewel of Zanzibar, Tomb of the Red Queen and Raven Woods.

Take the kids to Assiniboine Park Nature Playground and Zoo for a space to run around, play, explore and interact with unique animal species. After exploring the Animal Kingdom, take the kids for a spin around the rink at Assiniboine Park. Established in the early 1900s, the park is open year-round and beloved by locals and tourists alike. If you’re not in the mood to skate, head to Assiniboine Forest for a scenic walk along Sagimay Nature Trail.

Get out on the water with Canoe River Tours, gliding through the picturesque waters lined with lush trees. Take in Winnipeg’s changing colors in the spring or hold out for long summer evenings on the water.

Grab the little ones and head to Manitoba Children’s Museum, exploring a myriad of fun and educational exhibits. Hop on historic locomotives and passenger train cars, or head to the sensory room — ideal for children with autism spectrum and sensory disorders.

Learn all about the beautiful Exchange District on a historical walking tour. Stroll through the unique and changing neighborhoods while gaining knowledge from the guides. Appreciate the variety of stone-clad buildings and narrow corners, all from the late 1800s into the early 1900s.

Your tech-loving teens may appreciate a DoVR Virtual Reality Experience. Immerse yourself in a variety of content and step into the future with the kids.
