Spring break is a great time for a Stay-cation. As kids, it is one of my most favourite memories. We would be tourists in our own backyard for the week. My mom and dad would rent a hotel room with a pool for a night or two. We would tour and visit fun local spots. Maybe go out and eat at one of our favourite local spots. Visit the mall to window shop and maybe pick up a souvenir or two from our staycation! Whatever you choose to do, enjoy your Spring Break!
Four Fun Spring Break Stay-cation Places to Visit! (In no particular order)
1. The Forks
Take an afternoon to walk around The Forks and enjoy what it has to offer.
Staycations suggestion: Bring a travel game or a deck of cards and sit inside the common or outside if the weather is nice. Enjoy your time together!
2. Go for a family hike!
Whether you have a 2 year old or a teen, Winnipeg offers so many fun and exciting trails for all ages and skill levels.
Staycations walking/hiking suggestion: Assiniboine Forest. Just off Grant Avenue, explore the Assiniboine Forest. With multiple trails for walking or biking, you can spend an hour to an afternoon. Be sure to bring your furry friend if you have one!
3. Check out a Museum
Visiting a museum is fun, interactive and educational. There are many right here in Winnipeg to put on your list! The Manitoba Museum, The Canadian Museum of Human Rights, Dalnavert Museum, the Children’s Museum and so many more! Take a day to explore one or more!
4. All ages can be busy in Assiniboine Park
Assiniboine Park has so much to offer! Play a fun game of tag or statues in the park. For younger children Nature Playground is all kinds of fun. Kids of all ages can be kept busy walking the trails and heading over the bridge to Sargent Sundae for a tasty treat. Visit the Leo Mol Gardens, take in the Zoo to watch the polar bears swim or stop in the newly opened Leaf.
Staycation Suggestion: Bring a picnic lunch and if it is nice, enjoy the sunshine, or ‘picnic’ at the picnic tables inside duck pond canopy.
