Urban Escapes

Plan the ultimate staycation in Winnipeg or Brandon.


Visit the only museum in the world dedicated to the topic of global human rights and see thousands of pieces of Indigenous art at the world’s first Inuit art centre, Qaumajuq. Unwind with a relaxing visit to one of many spas and discover a diverse culinary scene with everything from craft brews and pub food to traditional cuisines.

Treat your family to a shopping getaway at shopping destinations in the west and southwest regions of Winnipeg with options for hotels and recreational activities nearby. Or, browse a variety of local boutiques in shopping hotspots like the Exchange District, Osborne Village and Corydon Avenue.


Discover Brandon, Manitoba’s second-largest city, in the western region of the province. Learn about Brandon’s history at museums that showcase its pioneer past and military connection. Visit an art gallery to see the landscape interpreted by locals or pose in front of brightly coloured murals that complement the ghost signs painted on the side of heritage buildings. Walk the extensive trail system that meanders through prairie grasses and ponds along the riverbank and stop in at the Discovery Centre to see the family activity centre or pick up a souvenir.
