Cheap Vacations From Winnipeg

The Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport is an international airport located just twenty minutes from downtown Winnipeg. The airport is a hub for Calm Air, Perimeter Airlines, and Kivalliq Air and is a focus city for WestJet and Air Canada Express. Cesar Pelli, a world-famous architect, designed the terminal and it is the first airport terminal to be LEED-certified in Canada for its environmentally friendly construction and operation. With free Wi-Fi throughout the entire terminal building, restaurants, food stands, shopping, air services, a children’s newly designed play zone, a chapel, and valet services, the airport is surely ranked up there with some of the best in Canada. The airports vision is ‘to lead transportation innovation and growth’, and with its successful past and ever-expanding future, this airport will surely be a hub for many more airlines in the future.

Winnipeg is known for a few things. Firstly, it’s the “Gateway to The West”, as it’s the first major city you drive through on the way to the prairie provinces, secondly its multiculturalism and thirdly its long, cold winters, Winnipeg is a city with much to explore during the cold or sunshine, whichever season tickles your fancy. Exploring Winnipeg during the summer is a handful of fun. Stroll through the tree-lined walkways of Assiniboine Park, go on a Bison Safari, check out The Royal Canadian Mint, test your luck at the slots or catch a hockey or baseball game, or dazzle in the brilliance of theatre at The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre or The Prairie Theatre Exchange. Travel back in time as you enter The Manitoba Museum, check out the National Historic Site, The Exchange District, enjoy an afternoon in St. Boniface, or stroll through The Forks National Historic Site. Explore the vast lands, and loads of history and culture anywhere you turn while in Winnipeg.
