It's definitely Fall here in Winnipeg & I couldn't resist doing a Fall City Guide to feature some old and new spots my hometown has to offer during this time of the year.
To start a cool & crisp morning, I recommend warming up with a cup of joe from one of my favourite cafe, Little Sister Coffee Maker in Osborne.
For breakfast, the newly opened, Creme De L'Essence, serves comfort food with a french fusion twist. I got their Chicken & Waffles, while the boy opted for their Eggs Benjamin --- both of which were perfect to start a long day ahead.
During the daytime, it's nice to make a drive out of the city. The highways are lined with trees in their changing autumn colours. I decided to check out Gimli for the first time and discovered how interesting this small rural municipality is.
When visiting, make sure to check out the Viking Statue as Gimli is also known to be the Heart of New Iceland. Also located downtown is H.P.Tergesen & Sons, a general store that has been in operation since 1899.
After a quick day trip, we headed back to Winnipeg and made our way to Fort Whyte Alive. For this month, they are featuring Sunset Goose Flights. It's a great way to witness a breath taking display of thousands of geese landing half an hour after the sun sets below the horizon.
Whether you're with family, a group of friends or a photo enthusiast, it's a wonderful way of appreciating the change in season.Black Rabbit Bistro. They have a good variety of drinks, all priced at $8, which is both convenient & affordable if you ask me.
If you had just 24 hours to spend in my city, the places I have listed here are must-sees while passing through. I use Eventbrite to help find events locally and even when I'm travelling elsewhere. They also have tools to create and promote your own events -- you can check that out here!
