Urban Escapes

When your heart needs to escape.

We all have moments when we yearn for a change of scenery, a shift in our daily rhythm, or simply a fresh perspective. It's during these times that the call of adventure beckons, reminding us that there's nothing quite like the thrill of exploring new places to awaken our senses and make us feel truly alive.

In Manitoba, we invite you to embark on a journey of discovery in our vibrant urban centres.


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 only Inuit art centre. Unwind with a relaxing visit to one of many spas and discover a diverse culinary scene, including everything from craft brews and pub food to traditional cuisines and authentic offerings from a rich array of ethnic local restaurants.

Treat your family to a shopping getaway at shopping centres throughout most 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.

Explore Winnipeg's attractions and plan your trip by visiting Tourism Winnipeg.


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 frozen ponds along the riverbank and stop in at the Discovery Centre to see the family activity centre or pick up a souvenir. Stop at a local restaurant or brewery to taste delicious eats from a burgeoning culinary scene.

So, whether you're captivated by the bustling nightlife or the diverse cultural attractions of the city, Manitoba's vibrant urban centers offer a unique world of experiences to help you discover something new. It's a place where change is not just welcomed, but celebrated. It's where you'll find a world of experiences waiting to make you feel alive again.
