The one upside of being a Manitoban who does not own a cabin is that my family’s summer weekends are spent exploring the province. We often go on daytrips - a quick adventure past the perimeter around Winnipeg’s greater metropolitan region – to get a quick and easy change of perspective. I love that I’m back home with the kids before the sun sets.
We recently spent a spring day exploring the Birds Hill area northwest of Winnipeg, and our m.o. was to experience the region beyond the popular provincial park. Instead, we travelled the rural roads of the RM of Springfield, planning our days’ adventure around Manitoba’s (and our family’s) homesteading heritage. We visited three farm-filled attractions – all within a 15-minute drive from the perimeter highway and all within a 10-minute drive of each other – to connect with our prairie identity.
