Winnipeg is the capital of the Canadian province of Manitoba and the largest city in the province. It is situated on the Red and Assiniboine rivers and has a population of over 705,000 people. Winnipeg enjoys a humid continental climate with four distinct seasons.

Winnipeg offers visitors plenty to explore and experience, from its many cultural attractions to its beautiful natural surroundings. Spend an afternoon exploring The Forks, a historic meeting place at the junction of Winnipeg's two rivers that has become one of downtown's most popular gathering places for shopping, dining and entertainment. Or visit Assiniboine Park Zoo to see over 200 species of animals from around the world or take in some stunning views along one of many walking trails in nearby Birds Hill Provincial Park. In addition to these experiences, visitors can also enjoy live theatre performances or spend time at some unique museums like Upper Fort Garry Provincial Park or Riel House Historic Site--both great ways to learn more about Manitoba's rich history and culture.
