VIA Rail is the only passenger rail service into Manitoba. It makes its main stop in Winnipeg, known as the "Gateway to the West"

Get around

By car

Like most of Canada's provinces, Manitoba is large, so a car or any other road vehicle is probably the most convenient way to get around Winnipeg and all areas in the province.

See

The International Peace Garden lies on the border between Manitoba and North Dakota. It is a large garden/park dedicated to peace. The entire park is accessible to both Canadians and Americans without going through Customs, as a symbol of peaceful international relations. (Visitors must stop at the respective Customs station upon leaving.)

Do

Festivals that are always ongoing in several communities as well as Polar Bear Tours in Churchill, The Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg and several other venues such as museums and shopping centres.

Eat

Enjoy the fine grain products such as the different varieties of bread offered in the different communities and restaurants. Manitoba also is known for producing the best pork products in the world, including back bacon.

Drink

The drinking age is 18 - younger than most other provinces in Canada. Manitoba is also the proud home of Crown Royal in Gimli.

The tap water in most communities is quite delicious, as far as water goes, though in some locales, where wells are used to supply the municipal water system, there is a pronounced mineral taste. The provincial capital of Winnipeg has an aftertaste to its water, though it does not settle-out solids like, say the water in Regina, Saskatchewan. Manitoba is known as one of the wettest provinces, and has in excess of 100,000 lakes.
