      NYE in Winnipeg?

      Winnipeg Dec 3, 2015 at 3:35 PM

      Hey there!

      My two sisters and I are planning a trip to Winnipeg over our winter break. We are considering being there over New Year's Eve, but we are trying to decide if going for the NYE festivities would outweigh the possibility that some of the attractions we want to go to (mostly museums) may not be open. What kind of stuff goes on over New Year's Eve? What are your opinions?

      Thanks in advance!

    • date when the snow/ bears arrive

      Churchill Feb 14, 2011 at 2:55 PM

      I was in churchill last year October 11 -16 and there was no snow/ ice and few bears. I am planning to go again this year but want to optimize the chances of seeing bears in a white landscape. I know the timing is tricky: too early and there is no snow/ice yet. Too late and the bears are gone. I can either go oct 26 for 6 days or Nov 11 for 6 days. What would you suggest? Do you remember what date the snow arrived and bears arrived last year?

    • Desperately looking for a good hair stylist!

      Winnipeg Oct 1, 2010 at 4:50 PM


      I recently moved to Winnipeg so I'm in the process of finding new doctors, dentists, etc. So far so good... until today. I went to a new hairdresser and it was a total disaster. She was an "award winning" hairstylist who proceeded to give me a terrible cut (not even close to what I asked for) and the worst highlights I've ever had! I desperately need a recommendation for a good colourist and stylist who can fix my hair. I'm embarrassed to leave the house!!!

      Thank you in advance,

    • Road Trip- Hotel Age Question

      Winnipeg Mar 24, 2010 at 10:14 PM

      My boyfriend and I are hoping to travel to Winnipeg for a couple nights because we've never been to Canada and Winnipeg is the closest big city to where we are right now (central Minnesota). Of course, we will need to rent a hotel room. I'm 19 years old, however, he's 17. Is it possible for us to rent a hotel room together, even though he is under 18? I know around where I live, or in my home town actually, if there's someone under 18 in the room we can both be thrown out. Is it the same in Winnipeg? I really hope not...

      Question about the Mint

      Winnipeg Mar 15, 2010 at 1:26 PM

      Me and my husband are going to Manitoba for 2 nights in April for a family event.

      We have a little bit of time to spare, so we're going to check out the Mint. We've booked a tour at 11:30am, which is pretty much the only time we can do it.
      I was looking at some reviews online, just for fun, and I came across one that said that the production staff all go on lunch right around 11:30am, so the machines aren't/might not be running at that time. It's weird, the person specifically said not to take the 11:30am tour.

      I was just wondering if this is true or not?? Would everyone go at the same time? I really want to be able to see the machines in action!

      Camping in the south-east section of Manitoba

      Province of Manitoba Aug 15, 2009 at 6:27 PM

      We are going to visit the area south of Brandon, and we have not found many places for camping/tenting yet. Does anybody have a suggestion for camping in this area? Would camping be restricted to campgrounds only or are there non-private places where we can pitch a tent outside the towns (looks like most the land is farm land).

      Best Long-Term Parking

      Winnipeg Aug 13, 2009 at 7:11 AM

      My husband and I are gong to Churchill in October. We live in Minnesota, so we're just planning to drive to Winnipeg and take the flight to Churchill from there. Can anyone suggest a good, cheap and safe place to leave our car? We will be staying a couple of nights in Winnipeg, so our hotel may be an option, but we're not sure where we'll be staying yet. The airport is also probably an option, but I'm guessing that's expensive. If there are any better ideas we'd love to hear them.

      We're also looking for suggestions on the best way to spend a few hours on a Sunday morning. That's the only time we'll actually be free to do things in Winnipeg, but I imagine a lot of things will be closed...
