The Forks

The Forks may be one of the biggest tourist attractions in Winnipeg. It's open year-round with both shopping and activities available indoor and outdoors. The Forks used to be a railway repair facility but is now historical buildings filled with restaurants and different kinds of shops. Since it's located where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet, it's a very popular skating spot in the winter. In fact, it's the World's longest skating path! In the summer, you'll find performers outside in their Canopy Plaza area and there's also lovely walking trails along the river.

St. Boniface Cathedral, Winnipeg

St. Boniface Cathedral

The St. Boniface Cathedral has become both a historical site of Manitoba and a major architectural symbol. It has also become a well known tourist attraction and a place where many happy newlyweds have taken their wedding photos. There are only a few walls left from the original 1906 structure as so much of the cathedral was lost to a fire in 1968. When you walk in, you'll see a beautiful wood and stone, along with gorgeous stained glass. This is a site you don't want to miss!

Royal Canadian Mint, Winnipeg

Royal Canadian Mint

This mint is one of the two national Mints in Canada and produces billions of coins a year. You can go on tours and exhibits that show you the coin manufacturing process. When you book a guided tour through the Mint, they even let you attempt to lift a bar of gold! The building itself is absolutely stunning and has been the focus of many a photography session.

Manitoba Museum

After having the best breakfast in Winnipeg with the kids, why not take them to the Manitoba Museum? It is our provinces largest not-for-profit museum and is renowned for it's incredible portrayal of Manitoba's history. It has museum galleries, a planetarium, and even a science gallery. It feels like you're going back in time with their amazing and life-like displays. The two big highlights would be the Urban Gallery that shows you what life was like in Winnipeg in the 1920's and the Nonsuch, which is a full-size 17th century sailing vessel. This museum is by far one of the best landmarks in Winnipeg.

There are so many landmarks in this great city of ours but those are just a few of our favourites. With so many things to see and learn, make sure you get out there and take it all in! Next time you go out for the best breakfast in Winnipeg at one of our Sals locations, consider heading out to one of the above attractions afterwards and really making a day of it!
