A Daytripper's Guide to Manitoba: Exploring Canada's Undiscovered Province (Paperback)
Sandwiched between North Dakota and Nunavut, Manitoba has never been the busiest chunk of tourism real estate in North America. To independent travellers, this is a good thing: Canada's undiscovered province offers uncrowded beaches, innumerable lakes and unlikely cultural attractions, especially in the gritty/cool capital, Winnipeg.
A Daytripper’s Guide to Manitoba is the only comprehensive travel handbook to the province – and an indispensable tool for visitors from abroad, Canadians passing through and Manitobans who want to get to know their own backyard.
Get the straight goods on cities, towns and natural attractions in every corner of the province, compiled by one of Manitoba’s most tenacious independent travellers, Winnipeg Free Press columnist Bartley Kives. Plunder a small-town gift shop. Eyeball turn-of-the-last-century architecture. Commune with nature in wild areas that still feel wild. And forget what you think you know about the Canadian prairies – the only thing flat about Manitoba is the Trans-Canada Highway.
"An excellent handbook for pointing out the incredible array of places worth visiting that are all too often overlooked." — T. Keith Edmunds, Brandon Sun
