Manitoba’s Historic Sites
Manitoba is a province rich in history and culture. I’ve always thought my province was a melting pot of people. The northern part of Manitoba is home too Beluga Whales, Polar Bears, and Forts that were pivotal in the fur trade era. Southern Manitoba is full of rich culture. You will want to visit The Forks, The Exchange district, and the West end of Winnipeg. Don’t forget to grab a meal in the west end. Delicious authentic cuisine can be found on every corner. You gotta eat here! Throughout Manitoba, you can find Museums, Churches, and Parks. Visit the heart of Canada and enjoy all there is to see in Friendly Manitoba.
