A small sampling of some of the things to like about Winnipeg

  • The size is just right -

    Winnipeg is big enough that it has everything you want or need but it only takes about a half an hour to get to one side of the city to the other. Getting stuck in a traffic jam means you will be getting home 10 minutes later then normal.

  • The summers -

    The summers in Winnipeg are fantastic. Temperatures range from 23° C (74° F) to 25° C (77° F) but can hit highs up to 38° C (100° F).

    In the summer sun rises around 5:30 am and sets around 10:00 pm

  • The winters -

    OK, I agree the winters here can be very cold sometimes, but the cold just makes Winnipegers tough. When it gets to -30° C (-22° F) and we need some protection from the cold we put on our toques.

    To offset the cold we don't get earthquakes, hurricanes, devastating tornados, wildfires that burn all our homes to the ground or have any poisonous snakes, bugs or have termites that eat your house.

    I'll trade a few months of cold for getting rid of all that.

  • The seasons -

    Having four very distinct seasons is fantastic.

    The summers are hot!

    The fall is wonderful with beautiful fall colors!

    In the winter the crunch of the snow under feet on a crisp January day is exhilarating!

    The rebirth of everything in the spring!
