Romantic Manitoba!

CANDLELIGHT dinner for two in one of Winnipeg’s many interesting and unusual restaurants. This is just one of the pleasures in store for you when you visit sophisticated Winnipeg, Manitoba’s capital. Despite its huge department stores, broad avenues and night-time entertainment, it still retains much of the western, frontier spirit. The open friendliness of the city is basic to its charm. Winnipegers are glad to show you the high spots-Upper Fort Garry, reminder of fur trading days, Rainbow Stage where plays and musicals delight visitors, the famous Blue Bombers playing pro football in August, the stately Legislative Building.

Sample famous Winnipeg Goldeye and renowned western beef. Shop for Canadian furs, Hudson Bay blankets and distinctive Eskimo carvings. You’ll find opportunities to photograph a Canadian Mountie, still the guardian of law and order in Canada’s west. You’ll be captivated by the variety of Winnipeg’s attractions. For a change of mood there’s outdoor fun and adventure in the rest of magnificent Manitoba!
