Hi Fellow VTers,
was hoping you could give me a few pointers. My family of 7(age from 2 to 90) will be visiting winnipeg for a couple of days in oct(around 12th or 14th). Can you recommend a few places to visit ? especially any advice on scenic drives to see the fall colours etc. or even nice tourism sites.
unfortuantely only there for 3 days(we are doing an 8 day tour of saskatoon, regina and winnipeg in that order).
thank you for your help in advance.
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!
I'll be visiting in May for two weeks and being from a really hot and humid place (Singapore), I just wonder if anyone knows how the weather is and how should i dress? I have two weeks to plan a fab wardrobe lol. Appreciate any help, thanks! :)

Does anyone know a shop where I can buy silk sleepwear in Winnipeg?
I'm looking for men's silk pajamas and women's silk kimonos.
I know...maybe Japan would be a better destination to buy silk sleepwear but I will be in Winnipeg for a couple of days and I am hoping that I can find bigger sizes here than in Europe. I have a chubby hubby and here everything goes until XL only. Any ideas ? Thanks.
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,

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...
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!

3)Where can I go to get some amazing views and take some nice photos of winnipeg skyline?
4)What can i do while i am there? what can i visit? any winter activities available?
5) How is the crime lately in Winnipeg?
I hope you can answer all of my questions. thanks
Hi people. If one was lucky enough to be in Winnipeg from Sep-Dec how would one go about indulging in a cigarette?
Are there any indoor smoker's zones?

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...
Can anyone advise me whether it is safe to stay at the Malborough Hotel in downtown Winnipeg. We don't have a car as we are flying into Winnipeg. Is it a safe part of town? Most of the reviews say downtown Winnipeg is crime ridden. Which part of Winnipeg is safe? Please advise.
I've got a trip up there in a few weeks and wanted to know where a good area to stay is in? Also, can anyone recommend some good bars/lounges/clubs ect...that are a little nicer. Somewhere the young professionals go.
Can you inform me as to the exact location of Crescent Pk. off Pembina Highway in Ft. Garry , MB ? Thanking you in advance ,
I am coming to Winnipeg, from North Dakota for a concert in July at the MTS Centre.
I know there are some safety concerns in downtown Winnipeg.
Where would be the best/safest parking spots for a concert at the MTS Centre to best avoid car theft, panhandlers, etc?
I will be flying into Winnipeg this July and need to get to Winnipeg Beach. Does anyone know of any sort of transportation to get me from the airport to the beach? Unfortunately, I won't be quite old enough to rent a car.
I've posted a tentative vt meet for winnipeg in April 2008. Let me know if you're interested.
I'm thinking of moving from Calgary to Winnipeg . Recently visited and had some concerns about the city, ie; employment, crime, etc... I can handle the cold, but what is the quality of life really like. Is there a lot of rational tension between the native and non-native population. Downtown did seem a bit bleak with a disenfranchised, drunks hanging around. Although Calgary has its share of the same problem (maybe less visible). As well, can anyone give me an idea of what Winnipeg is like for artists?
Is there any web-site which can tell me all the different locations, dates, times of Texas Hold'em tournaments in Winnipeg. And is there a amateur poker league in Manitoba?
We are going through Winnipeg in May and would like to tour the Royal Canadian Mint. We only have one day there, is there anything else we can fit in, or something more fun than the Mint? Thanks.
